Black by Pearl Jam - The song of love, loss, and longing
From the moment I heard this song on the Ten CD, when it was released (1991), it has always been the song with the most feeling of love, loss, and longing. It's a song that can be imprinted on the memory of life.
In a way, it fits in well with my last two posts. The deep stirring of an emotional longing and reminiscing on the past. This song, for me was a book mark in time. That book mark moved with time and then stuck at a certain point. Now it recalls a place in time that is and was. Inexorably linked to a ghost of yesterday.
