For me, it's Sigur Ros' "Svefn-G-Englar". I listened to that song about 1000 times after this one particular break-up (which also happens to be the last breakup I'll ever have to go through), and now I can't ever listen to it again.

For one person who posted at Stereogum: well, let me just control-V:

"The One Thing" by INXS... granted, it's not the greatest song, but it WAS my favorite song (that wasn't by Prince) when I was 14.

But that was all ruined a year or two later when I discovered a video tape of MY MOTHER STRIPPING TO THE SONG.

For you?
I have been trying, to no avail, to find that Sigur Ros song. Not on iTunes, NATURALLY just like EVERYTHING I want and cannot find on flippin' iTunes.

Anyway - hook a sistah up, eh?

Re: Dude.
it took me a few minutes to figure out how to get it, but i got it.

those types of things always give instructions for WINDOWS users. dad-blamit! but i figured it out. thanks, jervo! you are AWESOME!

for what's it worth, I don't really let experiences ruin music for me. maybe that makes me sound shallow, or just like a liar, but it's true. I think that's because my attachment to music is stronger than my attachment to people.
If I discovered a video of my mother dancing around while music played, I wouldn't watch it long enough to ascertain whether she was stripping or not. As soon as the first button of the blouse came undone I'd have stopped the VCR, unplugged my television, and stuck my package in a pencil sharpener.
I loved this idea, but...
...for me I've always immersed myself in the music and used it as a means of "overcoming" the situation (aka, girl) that put me in the ruined state to being with. I think I listened to Sinead's first two albums on endless repeat for a year straight in high school, yet never thought to myself "I can't listen to this anymore because of x".

Of course I've never had an above-type trauma situation like that set to music. At least one that I haven't repressed.
