Not trying to poo poo your song, just telling my story.
I can hardly see or hear the title without thinking of PT. Well actually I can't.
Damn. I'm sorry about your friend.
I guess, for the most part, I see memory cues as a gift. There are songs that remind me of friends/family that have passed. Sometimes it's difficult for me to listen to them, but other times it helps bring them back to me for a short time.
