Music that reminds me...

In February of '98 my friends and I chartered a catamaran to sail from Antigua to watch the solar eclipse. With Montserrat erupting on one side, the spectacular total eclipse happening on the other side, a whale breached in front of the boat. We had a crusty old captain with great stories.

I had made an "Eclipse trip" tape, with all songs relating to the vacation. Some were obvious, some more subtle. We had "Starring at the Sun (U2), Moon Shadow (Cat Stevens), Total Eclipse of the Heart, Southern Cross, Aqua Lung (we did some diving), and 10 others. Every time we play the tape, it vividly brings back the trip.
