  1. From the title I didn’t remember this, but after I began listening to it, I realized that I had heard this before. I probably didn’t understand the lyrics when I was 12.

    1. That happens to me a lot, where I’ll recognize a song but not know its name or who did it. A lot of times I’ll see a song on a survey and think I don’t know it, but within a couple of seconds into the song it’ll hit me.
