You know what I mean... not just a song that you like (and not even, in some cases), but a song that all but physically returns to a point in your life whenever you hear it.
For me it's this...
This was my favourite song when I was about 15 and I think it inspired the first time I ever bought an album, without knowing any other songs from it. I also started wearing a hat down over my eyes like the singer...... though that swiftly stopped the first time I left the house with it on and walked straight into a wheelie bin at the end of our drive. Ahem.
But apart from that side of things, it reminds me of all the potential I felt at that age to craft my own world and what my life would become.

SketchyMagpie I bought that cd for my mom when It came out. She used to Jam music when she cleaned the house every Thursday night and she would play this cd a lot. I have fond memories of this song as well. Because I would run around and jump down the stairs and crap while it played.

hmm i don't see the tag for him but...
because Peter reminds me of an old friend, well this friend and or this song reminds me of this time. (don't take offense Peter! I was surprised to see that my friend liked this song so much, but he was just really cool and liked a lot of different things.)

chesh: Hey rye, under the "Dreadlock FAQ" >>> "The Basics" there is information on washing on the bottom. In my experience so far it has been best to wash my dreads when they get itchy and use a dry shampoo to help with the oils that are produced naturally.

SketchyMagpie: Hey. It differs on hair type but generally speaking, you can lose up to between 25-50% of the length. Most people will be around the 25%-35% mark, ish.

FriendlyGoblin: Hey guys, I'm thinking of getting dreadlocks and I was wondering how much they'd shrink. I have medium-thick hair that is decently damaged and is 20" thick from scalp to tip. I'm also white. I'm thinking of getting them so they're life sized ruler

littl3birdy: Hey nessdeyali , bumps and loops are part of the process. Combing out the dreads and restarting will just lead to the same result. Check out some of the timelines here and you will see lots of bumps.
