30 days song challenge : day 18
« on: May 13, 2020, 04:49:01 AM »
Day 18 : ę a song from the year someone close to you was born Ľ

Iíll pick Grace. Released in 2000, same year as my niece was born on the same day as me, St Patrickís day.
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...

My better half was born towards the end of 82,  so this one makes sense

Excellent. My daughter was born in 2005, right after the Vertigo tour. She's now wearing my hoodie with a big '05 on the back.

First son born in '96, nothing released, second son born '03, nothing released, I'll go with '04 Original of the Species for him though and for my older son, Hold Me, thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me from '95.

Life on a Distant Planet, for my nephew who was born in 1979. I was watching Battlestar Galactica when my brother called with the news.

Window in the Skies was released the year my sister was born. Also apparently the digital-only Exclusive EP was released extremely close to my date of birth.

Im choosing Electrical Storm, released a few months before my Son Kieran was born.
In the garden I was playing the tart
I kissed your lips and broke your heart
You
You were acting like it was the end of the world
