30 Day Song Challenge – Day 7: A Song That Reminds You Of A Certain Event

It really feels like cheating with this song to use one that reminds me of a concert. I could pick a song from any concert I’d ever been to. One that seems to stick out for me though, amongst others, is 2008’s Edgefest in Toronto. I got to go at the last minute with a very generous friend who let me use her extra ticket. We only saw two bands: Sam Roberts (awesome!) and Stone Temple Pilots. It was wicked. I got a great video of Sam Roberts doing Brother Down (yes, I shot that one myself when I was there), but for some reason it’s STP that makes me think of that concert. Possibly because they also remind me of the entire decade of the 90s, which was my high school years. It was fantastic to finally be able to see a band like this live (and let’s be honest, it’s fantastic that Scott Weiland is even still alive). No matter what, a part of all of us gets stuck in high school in one way or another, even 10, 15, 30 or 50 years later. I feel bad for kids in high school these days. The music just isn’t living up to the awesomeness of the 90s, or 60s or 70s (let’s forget the 80s). They’ll be stuck with memories of Teh Biebs forever. *shudder*  I hope some of them are able to break away and find the good music amongst the muck.

Anyway, here ya go. A couple of classic STP songs, and the official videos, thus you’ll probably have to click through directly to youtube.

Is it just me, or does he (Scott) look really weird in this Wicked Garden video. As in, he looks like he’s kinda healthy and weighs more than 100lbs and thus doesn’t look at all like himself. Musta been before teh drugz. The days leading up to his Velvet Revolver years really did a  number on him. lol
