association is free

I haven't been carrying my discman around much lately, which makes it hard to concretely associate songs with events and places - I've been doing all my listening at home (or occasionally at work). But I remember as a ten year old, visiting the War Memorial in Canberra. As we drove out, Stairway to Heaven was on the radio, and for a long time afterwards I couldn't hear it without conjuring up random terrible imagery of pilots going down in flames, and such. I wonder what songs other people have come to associate with Bad Things, but it's not the kind of thing they want to talk about, I suppose.
