It’s amazing how things trigger musical or entertainment memories in your brain, sometimes it is a smell or a taste other times an action.
Every time I eat Penne Arriabiata I think of The West Wing because I once watched the West Wing while eating it.
When I smell stew I think of The Archers because my grandad used to listen to the Archers when he was alive and I associate the smell of stew (something he cooked a lot) with him.
But here is a weird one – ordering chips with a lot of vinegar the girl putting the vinegar is holding it at arms legnth – I ask what the problem was and she said “I don’t like the smell of vinegar.”
The things you do for money. It reminded me of the brilliant Unisex Chipshop by Bill Bailey – his take on a Billy Bragg song.
