"November Spawned a Monster", by Morrissey, came out when I was a senior in HS and I'd just had a shunt revision (www.hydroassoc.org).  The lyrics to the song are about a girl who's shunned by her peers because she's handicapped--"a symbol of where sex-mad lovers must pause and draw the line".  Every time I heard that song it made me cry.  Although I wasn't born in November, I had my shunt revision in November of '89, just after Thanksgiving.  I had few friends, and many students pointed, laughed at me, and mocked my gait.  That song just crystallized everything for me.
