Dana Rossi hosts this monthly dose of stories fueled by songs that has been featured in the New York Times, “Above and Beyond” in the New Yorker, Time Out New York (Critic’s Pick!), and on NY1. Five artists–writers, comics, actors and musicians–tell the stories they forever connect with songs from their past. There’s the song, the story behind the song, and the story inspired by the song. We’re the third one.
