A song that reminds you of somewhere.
When I left school at 17, with my requisite 3 A-Levels and handful of GCSEs, I was desperate to have a gap year rather than go straight onto University. Unfortunately my Mum wasn't so keen and said I could only have a gap year if I did something 'useful'.
She talked me into doing a secretarial/admin diploma at the local college, telling me I'd be able to earn money as a student by using the skills I'd gained (I waited tables and worked behind a bar like the other students instead!) so I signed up.
I also moved into my first flatshare - an eccentric, wonderful house in Worcester with 2 blokes, 1 girl, a 'housecat' (a flatmate who unofficially lived there too - on the sofa) and a tramp who occasionally kipped in our cellar (one of the flatmates lined it, floor to ceiling, with silver bubble wrap that he'd nicked from the factory where he worked).
Although the course was boring and I had to take a bar job at a local hotel to be able to afford my rent it was probably one of the best years of my life. I learnt to feed myself (wouldn't really call it cooking), had adventures, met wonderful people of all different ages and backgrounds and had my heart broken for the very first time. Basically I grew up and you can't get much better preparation for Uni than that!
This song reminds me of the tiny, little, single-bed room I had in that house:
