Come clean: Did an ex ruin a song for you?

Posted at 8:28 AM on May 9, 2008 by Julia Schrenkler

The Musicheads are wondering if an ex ruined music or a specific song for you. Some of the answers are sad, some are sweet, and some are measured. Some are just plain quotable:

"A boy from Kentucky ripped all theTom Waits out of my heartstrings. For I while I couldn't listen to Rickie Lee Jones, either, or a fabulous Waits tribute album "Temptation" by Holly Cole. Sometimes I really miss Tom, but I'm afraid he'd inspire me to behave foolishly again." - MizSheri C.

Join the online discussion to share your own tale of ruined love, ruined songs, and if you found redemption for both.

Wagons Ho! (News Cut) Tim Nelson notes the Sesquicentennial Wagon Train is heading up from Hastings, on the trail for the Twin Cities:

The most interesting thing, though, is that this may very well be the last time in history you get to see an actual wagon train go through Minneapolis and St. Paul proper.

Get approximate arrival times in the blog entry and if you see them go by, don't hesitate to send us your pictures.
