It Could Have Been A Brilliant Career - Belle & Sebastian
Though B&S typically make music that makes me smile and bounce around a bit, this song tends to bring back sad memories of being in Phoenix in March 2006, visiting my sister with my mom and getting word that a close, close family friend (basically family) had suffered a massive heart attack at a surprise 50th birthday party, my dad in attendance. It was our first night in Phoenix and this song came up next on my playlist. I listened deeply to the words. I've never been able to listen to that song the same way ever again. :( I do love this song still though even though it tugs at the ol heart strings.
