The Worst of Times

A CD with songs from your worst personal moments

Perhaps as some sort of twisted therapy you would play your own personal Worst of Times CD when feeling down. The CD features songs that remind you of something stupid you did, something bad that happened to you, etc.

What won't kill you makes you stronger, they say.

       //What won't kill you makes you stronger, they say.// They do say that, but I've never been killed by a fondue and I'm just as strong as I was before I wasn't not killed by a fondue. Same goes for Eighties-style sweat-bands, I've never been killed by one of those, and I'm just as strong now as I was before. In fact, if anything, I might have been marginally stronger back then - despite being not killed by all manner of other things as well.

       Just a copy of the normal music i listen to all the time then. Well, more Lloyd Cole i suppose.
Hey, could it have wedding music on it?

       this would be like listening to a Spice Girls CD.

       Am I the only one who has bad memories triggered by certain songs? (I would guess not).   

       I don't mean bad songs, for example some of mine are by Aerosmith, Robert Palmer, Footloose - well, that one's bad, There's a Bob Marley one also.

       No you're not, [Zimmy]:
Lloyd Cole, "Jennifer She Said" - Woman i'd been infatuated with for two years splits up with her partner.
Marillion, "Kayleigh" - Different woman disappears out of my life, i think forever at the time.
Madonna, "Dear Jessie" - Outbreak of the Gulf War, 'ninety-one.
(Wallow, wallow).

       Cue list of things that don't kill you but make you considerably weaker...

       Music to shoot-yourself-in-the-head by...?

       Bloody Vicky Park. Actually no. Vicky Park is nice, but not all twentieth century memories of it are.
How about a map of worst places?

       My thought is, the more I listen to the song, the more I am reminded that the event occured a long time ago and that I am not the same person now that I was then. (I don't have a CD like this, though. I just hear the songs on the radio now & again.)
Zimmy, Jul 16 2009

       This would make for a loooooong cd. I like the idea but I think I preffer the more random melencholy when these songs pop up on the radio.   

       btw my positive vote briefly brought the plus count on this to two so somebody flipped their vote to negative.

       I don't think listening to it would work. I went through a phase a couple of years back when i listened to Lloyd Cole a lot, and it didn't so much eliminate or smooth it over as bring it all back horribly.
