    Good day or good evening, dear Seasonistas! The playlist is now up to date and I've really enjoyed your songs about memories, remembering and forgetting.
    There are several fine originals on the playlist, for example Wim (xommen) submitted "Memory of My Brother". And there are several fine covers as well. If you already haven't, check out Christopher's (Yukio) "September".

    Thank you all so much! Let's bring back memories and make new memories.

    Sometimes you fail to make good differences before it's too late and this song originally recorded by Mike & the Mechanics is about looking back and regretting that you didn't make up when you had a chance. It doesn't reflect my relationship with my own Father which was very good, though we had our times when I was in my teens & early twenties. It happened to someone I knew though, who had a massive row with her Father who then died suddenly before she could make up with him.

    The video is shots taken from the Glacier Express in Switzerland. The Glacier express runs between St. Moritz and Zermatt across the Southern Swiss Alps. We just covered the central section from Chur to Brig on the Glacier Express proper but during our holiday covered the whole route. It's a fabulous journey through spectacular country.

    For Doug's memory Season way back when, I played a few songs about personal memories, so this time around, I'm going for societal memory a.k.a. history.

    Asian Dub Foundation wrote this punk/reggae/hip hop song about memory, history, power, truth, propaganda, nostalgia, etc.

    My videos are here.

    Nostalgia is not what it used to be. I heard Darrell Scott sing this and I have been listening to his songs all week. Great guitarist and singer.

    I hope this song "In Memoriam" - which is a tribute to a friend who died in the the recent "Storm Gloria" that wreaked havoc on Catalonia and Valencia a few weeks back - will be considered "memory based" enough to qualify for the theme. Remembering back to the incident and writing this song has certainly helped my grieving process.

    I wrote it last week for a Skirmish (a songwriting challenge in which you have one hour to write a song, record it and upload it to the FAWM Site). At the time I didn't have time to write the Bridge that I thought it needed to break any potential monotony. So I revisited it later when I saw the theme for this Season and wrote the Bridge. Then recorded it with two instruments (Tenor & Baritone) and added background vocals on the Bridges.

    It is dedicated to the memory of our friend Jaume Teixé, who was a loving husband and father, a hard working baker supplying a large rural community and a socially committed activist who served on his local Town Council as a Councillor. R.I.P old friend.

    Here's one I did this morning but forgot to post. As well as forget in the title, it's the iconic song from a band I will always have fond memories of, because they've soundtracked countless road trips with my dad, and we've been to see them together a couple times too.

    "Even on a cloudy day, I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun"

    "But I heard voices, Not in the head, out in the air, they called to me. Through record speakers, through thick and thin, they found a shelter, beneath my skin"
