Musical Memory

We all have songs that instantly transport us back to a certain place in time. Songs from high school bring us back to our adolescent years. Songs from college bring us back to those hazy years when we were on top of the world. For me though, for better or for worse, certain songs don’t just transport me to a time period, but rather to a specific moment in time. For example, upon hearing the Goo Goo Dolls “Black Balloon” this morning I could see myself bombing along the Ross Rd. with a coworker on one of our infamous three hour break/Starbucks runs at the tender age of 17. “How to Save a Life” by the Fray reminds me every single blessed time of Calvin (may he rest in peace :( ). “Run” by Snow Patrol instantly brings me back to Cimarron, NM, and driving across Ted Turner’s property. There are a gazillion songs that transport me back in time. What are some of yours? ((Yes I’m asking for feedback :))
