The moment my mood shifts, or an event happens in my life, or yes, when I am in like or, god forbid, love with another person or a thing, I catalog songs into an inextricable order of listening. I tie them together by common phrases. Why do I create mixtapes for every indescribable mood? I wasn’t born with synesthesia, yet when I hear a certain song, certain words, they take me to a memory, a place, or a person. The worst is the person, and I see a face I was not necessarily ready to see. The songs we listen to invoke a certain sense of sentimentality in us, for other times and places. Isn’t that why you listen to music? No? Okay.
