Recollections based on the album Doolittle, by the Pixies.
Most of the most memorable times in my life, at least the ones during and after adolescence, are linked inextricably with the music I was listening to at the time. Hearing Bowie's 'Modern Love'
can set me off to reminiscing for hours about freshman teen angst, and Bob Mould's 'Hanging Tree'
can still damn near make me cry with the memories it triggers. Doolittle
is one of those albums that takes me right back. You?
