Songs About Me

Over the years people have commented that a song reminds them of me. I think it’s pretty interesting how different the songs are.

Mary Jane by Alanis – Someone said this song made them think of me back in my really dark days when I was a teenager (yes, I used to be much darker). I had an eating disorder back then and was what people now call “emo”.

I hear you’re counting sheep again Mary Jane
What’s the point of trying to dream anymore
I hear you’re losing weight again Mary Jane
Do you ever wonder who you’re losing it for

Well it’s full speed baby
In the wrong direction
There’s a few more bruises
If that’s the way
You insist on heading

Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Deep Blue Something – After a really painful breakup in college the guy tried to explain exactly why we didn’t work out and he said that this song made him think of me. I didn’t quite get it until I listened to the lyrics carefully…

And I said, “what about ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s?'”
She said, “I think I remember the film
And as I recall, i think, we both kind of liked it”
And I said, “well that’s, one thing we’ve got”

Mind you after he said that I couldn’t get away from that song, it stalked me. To this day if I hear it I roll my eyes, I actually used to like that song.

Self Esteen by The Offspring – A couple friends said they thought of me (in relation to an ex-boyfriend I guess I didn’t always treat all that well but I honestly wasn’t this bad) and well, it’s not pretty.

I Wrote Her Off For The Tenth Time Today
And Practiced All The Things I Would Say
But She Came Over
I Lost My Nerve
I Took Her Back And Made Her Dessert
Now I Know I’m Being Used
That’s Okay Man Cause I Like The Abuse
I Know She’s Playing With Me
That’s Okay Cause I’ve Got No Self Esteem

He’s actually the one ex I’m on the best terms with, ironic.

Anyway, now I just need someone to write a song for me and I’ll be all set. Something tells me though that the song would not be flattering.

    Nonsense! Why wouldn’t it be flattering? Now I am going to be listening to every song and trying to see if they remind me of you. How about Photograph by Nickelback. That just comes to mind off the top because of your passion for photography, of course.
