Before we move on with today’s comment diversion, I just want to thank you all for participating in last week’s diversion devoted to your favorite novels. A Guide will come out of that in the weeks to come — and it’s one I’m pretty stoked about. In the meantime, hopefully we’ll manage to post another book review entry in the not-too-distant future.

For today’s comment diversion, I want to return to music again. But, instead of favorites, let’s get a little nostalgic (it should help keep us at or around the 43 level, Jerce/Gigi). You know how you will hear a song today and it will put you back in a particular time and particular place in your past? Well, let’s turn that into a diversion. I will give you a few questions about your history with music, and you give me the song that comes to your mind (my largely embarrassing answers will be in parentheses, for example’s sake). If you don’t know or don’t remember, just skip that particular question. Or make up your own.


1. Your prom theme? (“End of the Road,” Boyz II Men)
2. Your first album? (“Thriller,” Michael Jackson. In LP format.)
3. Your first single? (“Who’s Holding Donna Now,” El Debarge)
4. The first time you got drunk/stoned? (“Jeremy,” Pearl Jam)
5. Your first relationship? (“When I See You Smile,” Bad English)
6. Your first break-up? (“Hold on to the Night,” Richard Marx)
7. The first song lyrics you consciously memorized (and do you still remember them)? (“Bad Medicine,” Bon Jovi, and absolutely)
8. Song most closely identified with roller/ice skating? (“Dirty Laundry,” Don Henley)
9. The first song that blew your mind? (“Dear God,” XTC)
10. And finally: The song that forever changed your perception of music? (“Bad/Ruby Tuesday” medley, U2)
