30 Day Song Challenge – Day 20 – A Song That Has Many Meanings To You

Today’s challenge invites us to share a song that has many meanings to ourselves, and I have to admit that I’m a bit stumped. There are certainly songs that have different *associations* in my mind. It isn’t so much that the song means a different thing as that it resonates on a different frequency emotionally, depending on the context. I’m not sure that’s entirely what the question is going for, but since that’s all we have to go on, here’s a song that stirs a lot of different emotions in me, depending on who is on my mind when I play it1. Here’s “Beeswing” by Richard Thompson.


  1. The details of which I have no intention of expanding upon here

    Ok, took me a moment, but yeah….it’s the associations that are different. Watching this as a muppet fan, later hearing this as a Harry Belefonte fan, later singing this in UU Church servivces….All very different:

    It’s hymn #1074 in _Singing the Journey_ aka “the teal hymnal”. I created a MIDI file based on the arrangement in the hymnal, and loaded it into our Kurzweil Mark 10 digital keyboard.
