The 30 day song challenge.
Day 07 - a song that reminds you of a certain event Joy Division - Love will tear us apart.
At almost every stage of my life there has been a musical score in the background, it makes this question almost impossible to answer. There are so many songs that remind me of particular times that I'm going to pick a random one.
This Joy Division song reminds me of a two week period in 1980 when I bunked off school. I spent two weeks in Stockport, mooching round the Mersey Way and looking through record shops, this song was everywhere, shops, cafes, and market stalls.
Stockport is a different place now, last time I was there I couldn't smell that hot weetabix aroma of Robinson's brewery, no Spinx's pie shop or Victoria chippy.... and all those great record and book shops have gone too.
..and there's a taste in my mouth...
