Cocteau Twins, Aikea Guinea
Lying on Netta’s bed, listening to her talk to her mother in Tel Aviv.
The Velvet Underground, All Tomorrow’s Parties
Smoking joints with Mike and imagining how we’d be old together someday.
Wire, Sand in My Joints
Chainsmoking cigarettes with Lorraine in our pyjamas and mining each other to the core.
The Sugarcubes, Birthday
Hugging Christine all over.
Joy Division, Love Will Tear Us Apart
Sitting cross-legged in Neil’s shirt as the streetcars went by on College Street.
Brian Eno, Everything Merges With the Night
Feeling the grass prickle under my neck with Craig on mushrooms.
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, The Weeping Song
Wanting to kiss Allison again but not kissing her.
The Beatles, Two of Us
Feeling safe in Phil’s arms and thinking they would always feel that way.
Sundays, Can’t Be Sure
Working the Sunday shift with Eric, who had a crush on me and made me mix tapes.
Except I didn’t know he had a crush on me.
