    Not sure why, but the room gets dusty every time I hear this track. What gets in your eyes?

    Had a couple of Hoegaardens, but definitely not pissed.

    It’s just a properly melancholy song.

    Neil Young’s “Old Man” can get me going after a few too many beers. It’s not even the sentiment of the lyrics, it’s the feeling within the song. neils singing and wierd voice. My old man won’t be around forever, and the person he used to be, and I used to be have vanished. I’ts hard to listen to that song without making it emotional.

    Blimey, quite an honest thread….

    Dire straights – Brothers in arms. Reminds me of the time I waved my father off to the Falklands in 82. It was used years after in a TV series of the event but when I hear it reminds me of being a little lad stood on the quayside of King George Dock in Hull waving him off.

    Let it be – the Beatles. Arriving in Zeebrugge harbour the morning after the Herald of Free Enterprise went down. The saddest thing I ever saw. The song was used as the fundraiser after the event.

    Neither event had a fundamental impact upon the quality of my life yet both songs stop me in my tracks when I hear them.

    I always pause when I hear a recital of ‘that’ verse of For The Fallen.

    One day like this by Elbow but it doesn’t make me misty-eyed, just buzzing
