30-Day Song Challenge, Day Seven - A Song that Reminds You of a Certain Event
One of the most fun experiences I have had was going to Washington, DC in October, 2010, for The Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear, put on by Jon Stewart of The Daily Show and co-hosted (or counter-pointed, if you will) by Stephen Colbert of the Colbert Report. A friend and I made the six-hour road trip to Washington and back, and on the way, we sang along to the Maroon 5 CD, “Details”, which was newly-released at the time.
That’s a fantastic CD in general, and indeed, it stayed in my player in the car for many months before I changed it out for something else. The lead track on the CD, “Misery”, is an incredibly catchy song, and just perfect to blast and holler along to on a fun road trip with a good friend, so “Misery” by Maroon 5 is my pick for something that reminds me of that fun event. The funny thing is that there were several musical guests at the rally itself, including John Legend, The Roots, and Ozzy Osbourne, all of whom I’m crazy about—but I don’t associate their songs with the event because they were performing stuff I had heard before. Plus, I’m pretty sure that over the course of the trip, we probably played “Misery” about a dozen times!
Here's the last one, in case you missed it!
