30 day song challenge – A song that reminds you of a certain event

Does an entire year count as an event? When I saw this was one of the criteria for the thirty days, I immediately thought of Welcome to the Black Parade. F1 fans will know that it was used in the ITV video montage they played on their final race before coverage moved to the Beeb.

It was the last race of 2008 and it was brilliant. The months leading up to it had been just epic for me for many reasons. If I’m in a particularly poignant mood and I hear the opening bars of this track, I may even find tears prickling my eyes, and that is a rare occurrence.
