What Song Would You Want To Be Remembered By?

Story Time!

I met this girl a couple of years ago at a friends party and we hit it off instantly. We had similar interests and were both big Potterheads. We exchanged numbers and texted for a while and when things went well, we decided to go out for dinner and get to know each other in person. 

It was a nice dinner. We talked about a world of things and one of the topics amongst it was Music. Our choices, likes and dislikes, artists/bands we completely geeked out on, etc.

Turns out, she was a huge (and I mean HUGE) fan of Queen (The Band) and almost walked away halfway through dinner when I told her I did not know about them (THE BLASPHEMY!! – I know). In my defence, I’d heard of Bohemian Rhapsody and Freddie Mercury (because they’re icons and I don’t live under a rock), but I never knew about the band or some of it’s other music. 

Luckily, Bohemian Rhapsody (The Movie) had released a couple of weeks back and she decided that we had to go see it. I was enjoying the company too much and had faith in her choices by now to oblige. We left our dinner halfway and ran to grab the last show of the day.

Let me tell you this, that was one of the most amazing movies I saw that year and somewhat changed my life forever. I mean, Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury was so brilliant and THE MUSIC!!!!!

On my way back home, I downloaded the entire album from the movie and heard Bohemian Rhapsody atleast 10 times before going to bed. I have been a big big fan of Queen since. 

Here’s the interesting part. Although things with that person did not go too far, she brought something so awesomely intangible, that it is going to stay with me forever. 

She is always going to be the person who introduced me to Queen and every time I listen to Bohemian Rhapsody or any other Queen song (but who am I kidding, nothing beats Bohemian Rhapsody), I am reminded of her. 

Honestly, this is one of the nicest ways to remember someone if you ask me. I’d be pretty happy if someone were to remember me when they heard such a legendary song. Which is why I ask you?

“What song would you want to be remembered by?”

Ps. Here’s a link to Bohemian Rhapsody, for all those who want to listen to it since I’ve mentioned it numerous times now!

  1. I never thought my boyfriend would be interested in ABBA, but then we watched the movie Mamma Mia together – a bit like teenies on the Sofa in his parents livingroom, holding hands (secretly, haha ) and then got so exited about the story and the music. When the last song was sung: “My love, my life” we both felt this deep bondage between us as well. It was a magic and true moment of love and being united.

  2. I don’t have any particular song in mind – but I’ll settle for anything Christina Aguilera related because she. Is. Amazing.
    Getting anyone on board of that….yes please!
    Stripped is still the best album ever made.

  3. I dream of dissolving into the strains of my favourite song when I die. But it is difficult to choose one.
    So I am scattering myself into three of songs on repeat.
    1. Still Loving You by Scorpions
    2. Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin
    3. Always remember us this way – Lady Gaga.

  4. “What’s Up” by 4 NonBlondes. After years of shameless karaoke performances, I have been told by several people in different social circles exactly what you wrote above — they can’t hear it without seeing and hearing my weirdo self.

  5. Oh, I love this post! I have few songs in mind! 1. “Foxey Lady” by Jimmi Hendrix, 2.”Work Song” by Hozier, “Lady In Red” by Chris DeBurg,…and “Backin’ It Up” by Pardison Fontaine ft. Cardi B!

  6. That movie is absolutely awesome. I loved it and am also a fan of Queen. My absolute favorite song of all time is “It’s a wonderful World” by the legendary Louis Armstrong. If you’ve never heard it I urge you to check it out. I hope I will be remembered by that song. 🙂

  7. Music can definitely define us. Music will always invoke emotions, memories, and dreams. There are some songs that make me thing of certain times and places, even though the song wasn’t present at the time. Others do because they played an important part in solidifying moments in the past.
    Do I keep a list of songs that have emotional and historical significance? You bet. Will I share it or is it just for me? At the moment, it’s mine.

  8. Such a thought provoking post 🙂 Cannot go wrong with Queen – their music is out of this world! ❤️ I would like something upbeat like “Hooked on a Feeling” by Blue Swede and (maybe ironically), “I Will Survive” by Gloria Gaynor because that’s my go-to karaoke song…

  9. I really like an Argentinian group called Soda Stereo. As I live in Brazil, and here it´s so rare to see people who like music from our neighbors (the language, besides the fact of being similar, is a barrier to know songs in spanish) , I am knew now as the guy who likes Argentinean Rock..

  10. Green Day has always been my favorite band. “Wake Me Up When September Ends” and “Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)” are my 2 favorite songs and I feel that they have messages that describe parts of my life. But the one song I would want to be remembered for is “To Make You Feel My Love” by Garth Brooks. Whomever falls in love with me, and whomever I love back will feel that love most definitely for the rest of our lives.

  11. A song that always takes me back to my childhood is young by Kenny Chesney. My sisters and I used to belt that song at the top of our lungs, wild, Carefree and full of life. Everytime I hear that song I think of them and how close we used to be, but we’re adults now and we have our own lives so its hard to get together as often.

  12. If we’re talking about the music that would cause people to instantly think of me, it has to be something from JD McPherson. I’m a superfan and extol his musical brilliance everywhere I go. For an individual song, I’d probably have to go with “Lucky Penny” as it’s the one I usually connect with the most. But, I literally love every single one of his band’s tunes, so I’d be delighted if people heard something from JD and thought of me.

  13. So, I thought long and hard to come up with one song, but I couldn’t narrow it down. However, after much deliberation, I picked just two. In Spanish, a song called “?Que Tiene La Niña?” (Can’t turn that first question mark upside down or add any accent marks with my computer, don’t judge me. lol) by Leo Dan…because I would like people to remember that I wouldn’t want to see them crying. In English, “This Is Halloween!” written and composed by Danny Elfman, from “The Nightmare Before Christmas” and performed by the citizens of Halloween. Odd, perhaps. But, why? Well, because I usually keep to myself and am not seen much, until Halloween and through Christmas. So, there you have it. Two very oposite songs, to remind people that I’m always around, even when I am gone.

  15. You’re right in appreciating the person who introduced you to Queen. My brother first told me about Freddie “The Legend” Mercury around 5-6 years ago but I didn’t get completely into Queen until my best friend got crazy about them around the time the big news came out about a movie being made in honour of Mercury and Queen. One thing that opening myself to classic rock has shown me is that there’s so much good music out there, and as long as there’s good music, there’s always a bonus reason to be happy. Bohemian Rhapsody is a legendary song no doubt but ’39’ is the one I sing while doing the dishes.

  16. Wow this is a really good question!! I have so many songs that I love so much depending on my mood but I think the song that sticks with me is Shakira – Try Everything. I didn’t think I would be able to pick just one but that one just came to me. What a great question! 🙏🏽

    1. I believe the year was 2018 when I first ‘really’ heard them!

      Although, I’d heard a lot of their work, I just wasn’t aware it was theirs (I feel foolish now).

      The Champions League anthem, The 20th Century Fox Music, We will rock you…

  17. What a great question! I will have to think about it…you lost me because you haven’t heard about QUEEN, haha, just kidding! Sending a big hug to your girl who introduced them 🙂 Now you are wiser for one more legend 😀
