When Songs Come On Your iPod Just When You Need Them

Burrard Street Bridge, Vancouver.

Life is full of ups and downs and I had cause to remember in the last couple of days a time when I’d been hit with several downs in a row too many. I was living in Vancouver at the time and took a walk to clear my mind and unusually for me, put my iPod on random. Out of all the thousands and thousands of songs I was lucky to (legally) have at my disposal, I’ve never forgotten the three songs that appeared in a row just when I needed it most.

As I was walking across the Burrard Street Bridge, the next three songs consecutively came through the earphones: U2’s I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For, Cliff Richard’s Yes He Lives and Carolina Liar’s Show Me What I’m Looking For.

It might be too much to ask that they’d randomly come on in that order again, so here they are. Enjoy:
