Dear Ray Lamontagne

No, Ray & I never dated.  First of all, I am heterosexual.  Secondly, even if I were not, there is no way someone as cool as Ray would be interested in me.  But this is the start of a new feature where I’m simply going to embed a youtube video of a song I hear that reminds me of either A. a girl I’ve already written a letter to or B. a girl who in the very near future will receive one of my (in)famous letters.  These will be cut & dry, aka I’m not going to blabber on about the girl the song reminds me of, that is for the letters themselves.  Eventually this might move to it’s own page, but I think for now I’m going to keep it on the home page.  Because I can.  Because it is my blog.  So if you like listening to depressing breakup songs in the context of reading about lost loves (remember when Brenda listened to ‘Losing my Religion’ for an entire episode of old school 90210 after breaking up with Dylan? I sure as hell do), then come back often.  That gives me yet another idea, maybe I’ll post some sweet breakup movie/tv scenes as well…

    I really like this idea of posting songs that remind you of someone. There are heaps of songs I have difficulty listening to due to memories of someone. I don’t listen to music as much these days.
    The breakup scenes you post could be similar to your own experiences too.

    I love Ray! But, you’re right, his melancholy voice and hyper-depressive lyrics lend themselves perfectly well to breaking up. Why is that we feel the need to cling to songs during these sad times? Then, do those songs and/or artists always carry the bad flavor of break-up from thereafter?

    truthfully i can listen to ray (or damien rice, ben harper, etc etc etc) whenever…if im in a good mood i just appreciate the beautiful music. if im feeling down it helps me wallow in my own misery, which is always fun.
