power of the senses

i'm sure you know that our five senses are really powerful. if you don't have one, the other four enhance to make up for it. and any scent, song or taste can bring you back to a memory that you've forgotten...

i'm the kind of person that when i like something, i like it a lot and i want it all the time. such as if i'm into an artist, i would listen to their album(s) everyday. if i like a specific food, i would wanna eat it everyday. i crave it. this goes on for a bit and then when i finally got enough of it, i still like it but now i no longer crave it and i move on...

bc of that, those certain songs/albums or foods remind me of certain periods of my life. they date them. it's so interesting... bc when i was dating the worse guy i've ever dated in my life, i was really into rachael yamagata. i love her. she's so good. but now whenever her songs get played by random, i get taken back to that period of time in my life when i dated that asshole. it sucks, you know, bc i love her. but i hated him. and so now it's a love and hate relationship whenever her songs play.

so now i just skip them. i'm SO sorry rachael yamagata!!!

I dunno about the whole "phase" thing, but there is a song by Janet Jackson that has a similar bitterness for me called "someone to call my lover". The lyrics or song has nothing to do with it - just the period of time in my life when it played a lot. I like the song but its not so nice to listen to it in the same way you said. It brings a sorta weirdly uncomfortable nostalgia.

There was also one more song by N'sync from the same time called "it makes me ill'. Luckily, it was just a phase and I don't really like the song that much :P.

haha wouldnt bad memories of food be of food that don't taste good?! hahah

but yeah, i totally agree with you. tasty food > bad memories, for sure. we can create new memories with good food bc eating good food makes you happy!
