Damn you, Easy Listening Station

So I'm in my office and the radio is playing.  Harry Chapin's "Cat's in the Cradle" comes on, and 15 seconds into it, I'm crying.  I had to turn the bloody thing off.

FML.

I assume these little emotional ninja attacks go away at some point.  But that will suck in a completely different way.

Let me know if you figure out how to keep the ninjas out... I hate those little bastards...

I remember being blindsided by The Living Years (by Mike & the Mechanics) a bit after my Dad died. Never saw that coming, but it pushed the right emotional button and the tears poured forth.

Jess, don't even get me started on that f*cking song. I was a mess the first time I heard that after Dad died.

While I'm sorry to see a good friend hurt, it's somehow comforting to know we were skewered by the same song!
