At some point in the early 90s a violin/accordion duo named “Whiskey Tango” played at Scotland Yard — a dark smoky bar-like coffee shop in Skibo — Carnegie Mellon’s now demolished (and replaced) university center. They were really good. At the end of the night they offered to take requests and the crowd got a little silly (“Freebird!”). After a while the two conferred and one of them turned to the crowd and said, approximately:
“We’re going to play a song by Led Zeppelin.
“There is a song that many of you know, that you heard in high school, and one day you met that special girl and you wanted to show her how you felt, so you learned guitar just so you could play that song for her, to show her how much you cared.
“That song is called ‘Stairway to Heaven,’ and we’re not going to play it.
“This is Kashmir.”
They then played Kashmir with a violin and accordion, and it was amazing.
I think I need to start making a list of moments I’ll never forget, so when I get older and even more senile I can remember what I’m not supposed to forget, and that will definitely make the list.
For missing therapy memories… check the date on the Brita filter?
