What song brings back special memories. Song and memory!
Songs often bring back special memories. Is there one that really has you going?
What song doesn't bring back memories. Most old rock reminds me of ex-boyfriends. Country reminds me of my dad. And Christmas songs are probably the strongest. They remind me of 18 hour family car drives to Ruston, Louisiana. Giant tree's covered, almost to the point of colapsing, by tons of ornaments. A fire in the hearth with almost 30 family members gathered to enjoy seeing each other and having conversations.
Do You Believe in Magic, by the Lovin' Spoonful. I had my first real crush on a young man when that song was popular and we would talk on the phone for a long time and it seemed that song was always playing.
That was several decades ago and I still think of him when I hear that song and I feel about 14 all over again.
I had an unspeakably beautiful experience once accompanied by the song, 'Moondance' by Van Morrison.
When I hear it now, everything about the experience comes back...the sights, sounds, smells, feelings. And I love it every time!
Sting - When we dance.
Years ago we were in the Czech Republic with my boyfriend (now husband) and one evening, he just suddenly created a romantic atmosphere and turned on this song too. We were dancing in the candlelight and all problems in life seemed to fade away for a while... It was a magical few minutes.
After all these, we decided to dance to this song on our wedding (at least in the beginning of our first dance), so now this song is even more important for us.
Sometimes, it's not the song that makes you emotional, it's the people and things that come to your mind when you hear it. read more
My Way - Frank Sinatra
I used to sit in my daddy's music room for hours as a kid playing with my HotWheels cars while he smoked his pipe and listened to his reel to reels and LPs. He loved Big Bands, Swing, and Jazz and ole Blue Eyes was one of his favorites. My Way was played at his funeral, because it's just how he lived the 70 years of his life, his way. Every time I hear it, it makes me tear up....sad tears because I miss him, but happy tears because I feel so blessed to have been his daughter. Very few words were spoken when I played as he listened, but a bond was made that can never be broken.
For me, one song that is very dear to me is 'Held' by Amy Grant. I listened to it over and over after we lost our son in 08 when I was 33 weeks pregnant. A friend gave me the cd and the song was so in line with what we were going through, I couldn't help but listen to it. Up until this year, I couldn't hear it on the radio without bawling. I'm finally able to.
It's funny how for me at least, music is sole memories for me. I can hear a song and be taken back to the exact time of my life that i used to listen to it, the people I hung out with, and they person I was. It's powerful for me.
A happy song for me when I hear it is acutally a genera of music from the 80's. Particularly a lot of 80's hair bands as they take me back to being a little girl, close to my mom and just some good times in my life with her.
Before, hearing the song "My Love" by Westlife, can makes me cry until one day, I just realized, I'm totally moved on from my first love. It's true that you can't force yourself to move on. Let time heals all the heartaches and it will all be worth it. Lessons learned and new love started.
"Where have all the flowers gone?" makes me think of my brother Jim and I strumming guitars and singing it together. Those were the 1960's and both of my brothers would end up in Vietnam. Jim in the Army, and my brother John was in the Navy. The actual song is rather sad but my memories of singing it with my brother are happy ones.
