TDOM: A song that reminds you of someone

A song that reminds you of someone.

Here I go with the auld sentimentality. My friend Donal moved to St. Andrews in Scotland to study Philosophy cos he's mad smart. We used to hang out all the time, eat bagels with bacon and cream cheese, go drinking by the arch and go dancing in the Roisin. Jeese, I might be embarrassing the shit out of the poor guy.

Anyway, once I dropped out of college we both went on a three week bender, we both got a hangover and I got a girlfriend. It was a lot of fun.

Donal used to go up to the DJ demanding Rage Against The Machine and Radiohead, usually he'd be told to fuck off. One night he asked for The Funeral by Band Of Horses. The DJ played it. The dancefloor cleared and the two of us and our friend Yvonne danced away with epicly drunken movement and determined faces.

It's all ok, he'll be back soon, huzzah!


  1. have you read on the road by jack kerouac? he sounds like dean, and you sound like sal. music sentimentality isnt the worst thing, it happens to be one of the best.

  2. That's such a happy/sad story. The song really fits with what you're saying. It reminds me of someone too :(
