Ever have a music moment that takes you back?
To a certain time, place and feeling?!
I'm sure everyone reading has a song that remind you of family, friends, boy/girlfriends and others that remind you of certain trips, teams and moments in time.
I was randomly listenging to my Pandora a few weeks ago and this song game on. Almost instantly I was transported back to the summer before college.
I could smell my childhood bedroom, and could feel the sunshine streaming in from the windows, warming me as I began to pack for college. As I close my eyes I can see the multiple checklists laid out on my bed, with piles and piles of clothes littering the floor. Some on hangers, some just carelessly thrown down.
Looking back I would do a lot differnetly, packing wise, but at 18 you really have NO idea what you're doing. I didn't need half the stuff I took and I left some of my favorite things at home. Gosh darn it, where was Pinterest when I needed to look up the bazillion "What to take to college" pins?!?
Really couldn't tell you why ENYA was my music of choice, but I just know that no matter what, when I hear this song it's the summer of 2001 and it's the start of something new.
I recall the readiness of wanting to 'Sail Away' into a new adventure. The joys, hopes and dreams are still poignant to this day. Behold, the power of music.
What are some songs that 'takeyouback'?
