This weeks topic is: Memorable song from University. There was so much happening during Uni and it all seems so long ago, 4 years nearly 5 years ago. The first songs that come to mind are ones I used for my films and songs that always used to play at the Forum, our student union bar. Whoa. I can't even remember what the first union bar was called.
All Along the Watchtower by Jimi Hendrix
I remember playing more songs in my room in halls, Telford Court, ah, fond memories of playing 'All Along the Watchtower' on repeat to annoy my downstairs neighbour. Good times.
While in halls, I was in Room 1. My neighbour in room 2 changed twice and they both Americans from Oklahoma University. The first guy I remember telling me how much he liked The Flaming Lips and that they were from Oklahoma City. I told him I was in a production of the show, Oklahoma once and started singing (I had been drinking I might add). He then gave me all the albums from the band. This song stuck in my head as I had heard it before. I ended up using it as the basis of a script I wrote and used the song in the credits.
This song played all the time at Forum and The Font? (I that was it). Sometimes they even played it twice. That was annoying.
I became obsessed with this song after I saw the video. I played this on repeat until I was sick of it too. But since then, its had a revival. For me, I mean
I think I was obsessed with this song too as I remember this song coming out towards the end of my 1st year and my friend and I used to listen to this while in the edit suite.
We also listened this on a loop in the edit suite too while drinking 5 cups of a coffee an hour!
