Tune: “Power of Sound” by Ace
I have to wake up at 11am today for work, so I have to keep this short. I’ve been listening to this track on and off for a couple of days now, but I heard it before a few months ago when I was really into Initial D. I recently got back into it, and is in the process of rewatching the Fourth Stage.
As I was watching it, and listening to the track, a few ‘memories’ resurfaced. It’s hard to explain, but those ‘memories’ resurfaced with a very subtle hint of the emotions attached to those ‘memories’. I am putting quotations on “memories” because those memories are very vague.
Imagine a street scene, in Hong Kong or somewhere similar. Quiet night in the area, but noisy in the distance. The street is bright and lit up by yellowish orange lights from above. The street is dry but the surface is a little glossy. The street is empty. There is a car behind me, playing this tune or a similar tune. It has a fast beat to it. It’s a dance song (none of that shit that we have now mind you). Even if it’s a dance song, there’s quite a bit of emotion attached to it. Hard to explain.
Well, that’s all I’m going to say about the scene. I brought it up cuz I see it in my ‘memory’, and I am trying to hold onto that memory and those emotions, as vague as they may be. Why? Because I no longer have those emotions. I haven’t felt that way for years. I think the last time I felt those sort of emotions was back before 2001. Maybe even in 1999, or 1998?
I can’t close my eyes either and think. It disappears faster. [chuckles] It’s fading, but I can still see it. It reminds me of those nights, those friggin cold nights. We can’t go back to those days and nights, but I can always try to remember them.
BTW, I got your Top Gear email Jon. Will reply in a day. Just mentioning it here, cuz I’m excited. Series 10!!! WOOHOO!
