This is not one of those lists of you're favorite Scarlet's, but songs that you associate with a memory or lyrics that hit really close to home

(Warning:depressing read)
My girlfriend took a very long time to warm up to the Dead, but one night I put on the 5/19/74 Wharf Rat and she had a real connection to the story.
Her father left her family at an early age due to alcoholism and soon after became homeless.
"more than my maker, though he's no friend of mine" He used to be a preacher lost his faith
"Half of my life, I spent doing time for some other fuckers crime" Alcoholism was caused by child abuse by parents
The references are endless. Her father is doing better and she is a Head in training.

Me and a few friends were drinking in the parking lot before a Keller Williams concert listening to New Speedway Boogie when a cop came taping on the window. Always associate that song with that bad night now

The first song I ever heard was on a skiing trip when I was 15. It was the Fire On The Mountain from "Dead Set". I was a complete metal head and thought it was unreal. I remember hearing the the actual version 2 years later and being amazed how much they cut

I'm sure I'll think of more soon

My father breaking the news of his diagnosis to me:
"Patrick I'm not Black Peter yet, but it's gonna be an uphill battle"

fast forward 3.5 months

The last few days he was alive I was in the hospital while a bunch of his longtime, show going and just good friends came by to say their goodbyes Crying or Very sad

song gets me everytime i hear it now....i tend to skip it...even over a year later...


"And my friends they come around
Come around, come around"

When I hear "One More Saturday Night" I think of this one particular trip when me and my girlfriend were sitting in the car before the show (literally couldn't move, in a good way!) and the beginning of "One More Saturday Night" sounded so damn cool that I kept repeating the intro. My association is not tied to the symbolism of love or betrayal but it is surely a lasting memory, regardless of the interpretable value.

Hmmm... let's see... Luckily, I don't have a ton of negative emotional memories attached to the GD, so it keeps them happy for me.

That being said, Days Between tugs at the old heart strings... it's probably the deepest single song they wrote.

I would have to say my first terrapin station that imsaw live. I remember getting the terrapin station album sometime in 1983 and I just fell in love with side 2 the first time I heard it. The first time I heard it live I freaked out, and I can still remember the magic that felt. I could just feel all this mad energy going through my body the whole time they played it. It was amazing. I'm going to have to look up the exact show it was, but every time I listen to it I still get chills going up and down my spine
