It's Official# I'm disgustingly sappy

So at work they decided to change the usual music rotation they have playing throughout the store, and I hear this song that I haven't heard in a long time. As it turns out, it was the song that my ex, when we first started going out, said was pretty much the story of her life at the moment. The song - Complicated by Carolyn Dawn Johnson (yes, it's a country song, and yes, I'm actually admitting this).

Now here's the kicker: I pretty much stopped what I was doing and listened to the song in it's entirety, and I've been all nostalgic in a 'what a time that was but now it's sadly just the past' way ever since.
____
I'm such a friggin' loser/sap/dork. Shoot me now.

Edit: I was being a tad too sappy

I don't think there is ever any shame in looking back at certain points in your life. Whether positive or negative they can still shape who you are as a person and influence how you approach and look towards the future..they are always a part of you and there are so many who do the same..the question comes in what you can take from the past into the future....and it ain't sappy at all

[country accent]T'aint a thing wrong 'bout lookin' back on your life.[/country accent] Music has a deep and profound connection to certain points in our lives. Thats why nostalgic music is so popular (i.e. the 80's music trend when The Wedding Singer came out). When a certain song has a connection to something signifigant in your life, of course you're gonna be a tad bit "sappy." Don't worry about the feelings you are going through. I'm sorry the relationship didn't work out... but at least you can always look back at the happier times

This should be a confession.

Nah, I'm kidding. Adam, music often triggers intense emotional responses within people (as I'm sure you know), so it's completely natural to have an attachment to a song. Your comment about her life being 'complicated' shows that you still keep in touch with her and are genuinely caring for thinking of her.

Music has an eery way of drudging up old memories, good and bad.

There is nothing wrong with being sappy, but tons wrong with listening to country music.
