Sometimes music can stop you dead in your tracks.
Share some music stories that have made your jaw drop.
I’m going to go with this tale. In the Summer on 1985 I called round for a school friend just to hang out. For no logical reason we got on a bus and went to Solihull to look around the shops. The High Street was not pedestrianised back then and walking down the High Street a huge sports car with the sun roof fully down pulled up next to us as it was briefly stuck in traffic. The driver was a typical Solihull looking yuppie type bloke, the passenger a token 80’s glam looking woman, both wearing shades.
At this moment the drum padding then guitar break from Money For Nothing by Dire Straits blasted out of the car stereo. The timing and imagery was just so fitting on what was a blazing hot day. A scene so 80’s it could have actually been a music video. I’d only heard the song like once or twice and didn’t even like Dire Straits.
My mate and I both looked at each other in silence kind of acknowledging the moment but never discussed it further but when that track passes my ears ever since for whatever reason I can only see this image.
