Welcome to this Months feature! Now, January is a time when it is the start of something new and everything fresh! With that means that people are always on the lookout for new music! Well, this feature may not bring you a lot of new music but it will welcome you into my world! Music is a huge part of my life – if i am not listening to it, i am playing my guitar or keyboard or even writing a post for this site (Off The Record).
So to start off 2018 I wanted to write about a topic I love and I came across this daily challenge so I thought why not turn it into an article! So here we go! Lets start with the first in this monthly feature – Lost in Music (You probably have that song stuck in your head now its by Sister Sledge).
A Song That Reminds You of Something Sad: Moby – Porcelain
We got our house rabbits when I was 12 years old. We got them neutered within the first 6 months of having them – they were already nearly 2 years old and we rescued them from a pet shop. Poppy and Clover – Clover was the runt of the litter and Poppy had always looked after her and so they came as a pair. I loved my rabbits they were amazing and i loved watching them doing their rabbity things such as eating, hopping, doing binkys.
The first thing one of the rabbits laid on their back we thought they were dead and then we realised that when rabbits are really relaxed they roll onto their backs and reallly chill the hell out. They were absolutely great.
We took them to the vet to get neutered and they had to wear these collars around their necks to stop them biting at the wounds. When we went to take them off and they came back Clover did not seem right over the next couple of days – she couldn’t go to the toilet and she started to feel cold. We put her in the pet carrier to take her to the vet to see what was wrong wit her and that’s when it happened – she had a massive fit and passed away. I was devastated. I was so upset.
We found out that the vet never told us that Clover had Cancer and it was such a shock to us that she passed away. I can’t stand Moby but I had his song Porcelain on a Top Of the Pops Cd and it was all I played to take the pain or mourning away – i still don’t listen to Moby to this day and especially this song but it helped me through my time of need and so much upset.
