The Money for the Girl, Will the Circle Be Unbroken

Strange Connections...

An odd experience this week. Driving to work and decided to listen to the Bioshock Infinite soundtrack... what? doesn't everyone listen to video game soundtracks on their work commute? Anyway, just a couple tracks in and I was hit with a ton of bricks. I haven't listened to this collection in a long while and when "Will the Circle Be Unbroken" rolled around it was like a punch in the stomach. The road blurred. My vision dimmed. Everything was surreal for a moment.

The last time I'd heard that song was at my dad's funeral. We lost him Christmas day and that was one of the songs that played during his service. I picked out some of the music but I don't know if this selection was chosen by another family member or if it was recommended by the director. What I do know is that I hadn't realized it then and I hadn't expected listening to a game soundtrack to take me back to that day in a blinding instant.
