Pavlovian

Sometimes certain songs get intertwined with something and can't be separated from it. There is a heart-wrenching commercial for the Humane Society calling attention to abandoned and abused pets, many made homeless by Hurricane Katrina, and it uses Sarah Mclachlan's song "Angel." Well, I think it does, because, of course, whenever it comes on I have to lunge for the remote and change the channel - I can't watch that stuff.

But now that song makes me sad (of course, it's pretty haunting to begin with). I was in the Key Food yesterday and it came on the sound system. Oy.

I met Sarah once during my music business days. Very nice and totally in her character to allow her song to be used for animals that are hurting.

She's got a beautiful voice. I like when she sings Ice Cream!

haha I've seen that - and that commercial is a tearjerker. That is such a sad song though :(
