I was nineteen years old when I was in the war in 1972. One of the guys in my platoon had this song on 8 track tape. while walking through the elephant grass. We came up on a burnt out tank (ours) got in. got comfortable,dropped acid. (brown acid)some where during the night we were over come. The only memory I have of that night, is this song playing its violent guitar solo.And fighting this enemy solder with my fingers and teeth I woke up during dawn, and guy was ripped in pieces next to me.

half of me thinks it's bullshit and the other half thinks how weirdly specific and non-composed it is

either way I'll never listen to the song again without thinking of guys tripping in a burnt out tank in vietnam

a friend of mine was in iraq pt. 1 and they tripped a lot because for some reason it wasn't that hard for ppl to just mail tabs in a letter and not get caught

I had a friend who was tripping on an army base stateside when they got an emergency call to deploy (also iraq pt 1). he ended up sitting in the bay of a troop carrier for hours, waiting to get airlifted. then they got told nevermind, go back to whatever you were doing, false alarm. that was when he decided to go awol.

This song means a lot to me. I just turned 18 on the 16th, a major milestone in life. The thing is though after moving into north-western Texas in late June, it seems that all my friends that live down here don't seem to appreciate anything but weed anymore. They didn't even call me on my birthday... I'm at a crossroads, do I stay in this place and stay young or do I move on and out leaving my family and bunk friends down here? Well, hopefully this December is different.. From the rest at least.

It was just before New Years 2009 and my kibbutz was under it's third day of rocket and mortar attacks. I was working in the dairy and trying to ignore the explosions all around me when the radio played this song. That was the first time I have ever heard it and the world stopped for me when it played. I still tear up everytime I hear it.....
rakiaofek 10 months ago

I fell in love to this song many years ago. I flew across the country to be with her when I was seventeen. That story ended for me half a decade later but this song still reminds me that there are always beautiful things to look forward to in life.

"the smell of hospitals in winter... and the feeling that its all a lot of oysters, but no pearls"
Remainds me so much of spending my 30th birthday on call as a senior resident... up all night in some damn teaching hospital, getting home the next day to find that my girlfriend had abandoned a birthday cake and a few presents for me... one of the nicest things anyone has ever done for me, and one for the sadest sights Ive ever seen... I think I knew I loved her then, married her...

My friend committed suicide 2 nights ago with the lyrics "I can't remember all the times I tried to tell myself to hold on to these moments as they last" as his last post to FB. I Googled them and I wound up here. All I wanna say is Goodbye man and God-Speed Bryan, you were a great soldier and friend! From me and all your friends.

Dude...me and my friend were in my truck, drivin' down the road and we got into an argument, it escalated and we were ready to kill each other. He had a plastic fork and I had a plastic knife and we were goin' to rip each other's head off, but then this song came up on the radio and we just looked at the radio and back at each other and just apologized to each other and just relaxed in his garage with a few beers.

this song reminds me of what it felt like growing up, and discovering, good music, and my big sister .. listening to it, the feeling that life can be sweet, for a moment or two

I think of my daughter when I hear this-I f***ed up so badly-..., but I alwlay loved her. Addiction takes love away and leaves you with nothing.

Reminds me of when I was a freedom fighter, in South America. I found myself skydiving for
what felt like forever... all the time. Hell, I'd commandeer choppers, just so I could get
in the air and jump one more time. The solitude always saved me.

Into installations I'd fly, alone and silent, to save lives, to destroy illegal arms...

Thank you for your comments to me. The words I know are true and said very beautifully. I am waiting for my heart to get over the loss. I know I will at least partially someday. I went through our cd's and found his cd's and a DVD of Foreigner and will spend some time today enjoying them and memories of him.

berrylyn 1 year ago 2

Lyn, I'm so sorry. Let me return a hug you passed to me few days ago. Thanks you for the kind comments then. It is very stressing for the surviver to review our lost love ones personal items, lingering imaginations, thoughts of reasons, purpose of each item smothered deeply in each container. I don't touch anything anymore, leaving it the way my wife placed it 12 months ago. Stay busy and with others.

love this:

The old saw is that writing about music is like dancing about architecture, but writing about music on YouTube is like clambering up on the architecture, hanging banners and family photos on the window ledges, or tossing garbage from the gables. Its anonymity makes it all the more like a group portrait, hauling us into visibility in all our bedraggled need. It’s not that you can’t or shouldn’t formally analyze or evaluate a song, but YouTube’s intimate entanglements make it plainer that doing so is no more the end of the process than gossiping about your family, even to your therapist, is a resolution to the relationship.

This was playing first time I went to a big night club. All dressed up smart clothes only, shiny shoes. It was a night club called chevaliers in stanmore. It was with a flame haired girl who was in a leopard skin dress. Debbie was her name. It didn't last. The night club has gone. I had this tune in my head for better part of 30 years. I only tracked it down this year. I hear this and I'm back there. That's the power of a song. No a great song.

The name: Williams Mix, made in 1952, eerily represents my family. We five children growing up in the 50's amidst parental chaos, the atom bomb, increased modern media, McCarthy, the Red Scare and Rock n Roll. Our name was Williams, the grown ups drank, there were many secrets, much music and a lot of disconnectedness. I vote this John Cage to be the background if there were movies of my family . There aren't. My parents didn't even think to buy a movie camera to capture their 5 beautiful kids

I used to entertain ideas of suicide throughout my teens. Attempted it once and indulged in lots of reckless behaviour in the hope I might not survive.

Years later I lost my best friend to it. I was the one to find him, and cut him down from the ceiling then cradled him in my arms while crying like a baby for what seemed like an eternity (probably only ~5-10 minutes) for the ambulance to arrive.

Even writing these few words brings tears to my eyes...about 8 years later. I really am shattered by these events even now. I found out later he was having marital issues and struggling after the arrival of his first child. I didn't even know.

This event tore my life apart, and his wife and daughter's, and touched many more. It being suicide made it feel all the more tragic and pointless. Much more than any other friend I've lost to car & motorbike accidents and drugs and cancer etc. I'm still hesitant to make new friends to this day.

I don't know if it'll help to share, but I how it might help someone.

Take care and talk to someone you trust - friend family or counsellor if you feel this way.

This song literally changed my life. When I was young I was afraid of coming out in the small town I lived in. After buying the Empire Records soundtrack I listened to this song over and over until I had the courage to move out on my own and start living my life. Happily things worked out fine, but like i said this song literally was my catalyst to change my life :)
