delve a little deeper....
I think most of us will agree that music has the ability to conjour up a memory or a time in our life. Whether it's a band our parent's listened to or an artist that you worshiped as a kid coming on the radio a tune can take us back to a time in our lives or a particular person.
Last night I was fiddling about on youtube and ended up listeing to a a string of songs from the early 90's, mainly Eurodance. It sounds Godawful now, but memories were evoked and i was taken back to a club I used to go to when I was 16/17ish. The kind of club that didn't care too much about requiring ID, but where I got my first experiences of dancing like crazy, drinking 2 bottles of cider and being 'wasted' and snogging spotty boys. Happy times I suppose, when life was less complicated. We were so damn young someones mother used to come and pick us up and we'd all have to try and pretend to be sober! Anyway, it got me thinking about the whole music that takes me back thing but rather than this being a sentimental journey I am basing it around my sexpolits!
Starting at the begining I lost my virginity to Bob Marley. Not actually Bob you understand, not least because he died when I was six! The lad who was lucky enough to pop my cherry to was actually very sweet and on this oh so special occasion he had done the whole candles, champagne and rose petal thing. Incidentally I think if a lover did that these days I'd be either a) Very suspicious at what he had done wrong or b) Overwhelmed with nausea, but to the sweet sixteen me it was adorable. He had also got his duvet and pillows and made us a little nest on the floor. He lived in digs and had a squeaky bed so if we ever got frisky we were subjected to his laddish housemates shouting or banging on the wall. Of course these days I'd ask him to invite them to join us but I hadn't yet discovered my slutty side or love for multiple partners at that stage.
Anyway during the event Bob Marley was playing in the background so to this day I can't fail to be taken back to that night and my first love when I hear some Marley. And here we go!
The actual event, whilst lovely was a bit of a non event. I remember am overwhelming thought of 'is that it?' and when he asked how it was for me |I replied 'Um, it was OK.' Probably not the greatest words of romance I have ever uttered! I have improved my pillow talk a little since then I'd like to add!
So, tell me, is there a song or a band that reminds you of losing your virginity?
Part two coming up later- the Uni years...
