Ok so we all have one (or one-hundred, if you’re me). That one song that you used to love, but has been totally ruined because now it reminds you of an old flame! That song, it might have been out when you guys first got together, or when you first decided to call it a day. That song could actually be about something totally different, but you associate it with them, so it’s now been totally ruined – for life!!
And there’s nothing worse than when that song, unexpectedly comes on the radio or in a club! Those three- ish pandora’s box minutes of wishing you were deaf, or that life had a fast-forward button!
Like I said, we’ve ALL got at least one! So I asked around, guys and girls, and asked what their songs were (swiftly deleting them from my ‘’having people over’’ playlist) If all of the following happen to be that song- my apologies, mute the sound and put on some earmuffs…their totally set to come back in 2013, and you can always pretend you’re doing a spot of DIY to boot!
Oh and all names have been changed, so you can put down the flames and pitchforks…its probably not the person you think.
