So it's raining last week and I had to do a lot of driving. So I pop a WDWForever CD into the old player. I was in the best mood. The various Space Mountain selections ("We've Come so Far") to me are just the perfect music for a cold rainy day. I don't know why but they make me think of Disney World in it's heyday more than just about any other piece. Now a couple of important things to consider: 1)I've never been to WDW in it's heyday. My first trip was 1992 and I skipped EPCOT for an extra half day at MGM. Stupid I know but I was young and foolish. 2)I don't think I've ever spent a trip at WDW where it's rained for more than an hour for the entire trip. So my association of Rain and WDW should be minimal. Anyway I started thinking back and there are some pieces of music that just evoke not only specific memories but also more vague associations like times of day and even the weather. The Space Mountain Entrance music makes me think, rain, dusk, and candlelit dinners at the Contemporary Resort. I don't know what it is. Also makes me think of the 70's though I know this music came in mid 80's. The Rain and dusk associations could be construed as unhappy images but actually for some reason they are good in this context. Whereas DL has always been a single day experience with me (living in OC), WDW is more of a multi day thing. So rain and the end of the day don't mean canceling plans and going home, they mean at the worst going to your Disney Hotel to watch the Resort TV Station or admire the day's souvenirs- or just pulling your collar up and toughing it out on shorter lines. I'm kinda ramblin' cause this is all such ephemeral stuff. The images this music makes me think of are so strong but kinda like a dream as there's no real reasoning behind it. Obviously we all have music that makes us remember things. The first place we heard it or whatever, but does anyone else have these wierd associations?
