We all have a song that somehow stamped our lives, takes us to another place and time...  
Well,I heard it today and couldn't help but sing along
cause everytime I hear that song
I go back to the smell of an old gym floor
the taste of salt on a Carolina shore
after graduation to drinking goodbye to friends
and I go back to watching summer fade to fall
growing up too fast and I do recall
wishing time would stop right in its tracks
Everytime I hear that song...
I go back

I think this song hits it right on - everyone DOES have a song (or multiple songs, undoubtedly - I know I have many) that when you hear it, it takes you back. So here's the challenge - what's one of your songs and the memory associated with it? Feel free to post here or direct others to join in - I'm interested in all the possibilities. I'll start off:

"Our Lips Are Sealed" by the Go Gos - I hear that song and I go back to being drunk off my arse and dancing with my former GBF at my favorite gay club in Chicago on 80s night back in the early 90's. We had such fun that night...

So - how about you?


In other news, I had alcohol last night. I got a bit tipsy and then I got very sleepy. Big lotta nothing, really.

I am currently crushing like a 16-year-old schoolgirl and it's making me want to vomit on my own shoes. Gnar, when do you stop doing this sort of nonsense?!

Lastly, longtimegone and I came up with a foolproof plan to fill the Water Quidditch pool at Lumos with hot guys. However, considering we came up with it at about 3 am, I'm not going to tell you what it is, because yeah, probably not workable. *looks shifty* I can't wait until Lumos...
I feel: curiousmeme-like
I hear: Kenny Chesney

Rythm is a Dancer - Snap!

This takes me back to (the equivalent of) highschool. It was on every party mix EVAR back then. There is one party that it especially reminds off, though. It was one of my birthday parties. I went out with two friends to get some air for a few minutes and we walked a good distance from the house. Suddenly we heard the beats from that song. We thought someone else was having a party, until we walked back to my house and relized that someone had turned up the volume and opened a window and the music was coming from my own party. -.- Later that night a girl from my class drank a whole liter bottle of 18% liquer in one go. She passed out a short time after that :))

I think you stop doing that when you die.

You Oughtta Know by Alanis Morrissette. Her album came out just before my senior year of high school and it brings back so many memories. Driving around with my best friends, cranking Alanis as high as we could stand. Ah, the bliss of teenage frivolity!

My four big ones. Two are country. :)) I don't listen to a lot of coutnry anymore, but two songs in particular definitely go on the "soundtrack of my life"

Strawberry Wine by Deana Carter - This song came out right about the time I got by drivers license. I remember the day I got it, we drove around listening to this CD over and over again, this song in particular. Every time I hear it I remember that first thrill of driving freedom. :))

Wide Open Spaces by Dixie Chicks - Came out my senior year in high school. My best friend Carly and I loved this song and played it whenever we could. I still remember driving off campus that last day of school blasting it and being so excited to be out of school! :))

Please Come to Boston for the Springtime - This will forever be my summer living at the beach. I was so in love with D. He was my wandering boy (and still is, though in a totally different way) and I wanted to be with him forever. Funny how time has changed all of that (though definitely for the better), but this song still takes me back tot hat thrill of being so in love with him. :)

Pussy Control by Prince - Nimbus. First time I met t00bs. Dancing like a f00l at the FA birthday party with [info]folk sprinkling glitter. One of the best experiences of my life thus far. I smile everytime I hear it. Hearing it at TWH again was fabulous too :D

I'm sure there are more :))

"Pussy Control" will forever and ever be associated with Nimbus for me. :-D

Hee, this just happened to me--I was at the gym, plodding away on the treadmill, when suddenly my iPod served up "Never Can Say Goodbye" as covered by the Communards. I remember being at an excellent house party in Cleveland abandoning (temporarily) my loser boyfriend, who was high and annoying, to dance with a gay friend who was loads of fun.

*sigh* I miss dancing. The Scholar hates to dance, so I don't get to very often.

Hot guys? Water Quidditch? Can I join in? Or am I one of the hot guys you had in mind? ^_~


Songs that take me back:

Avril Lavigne, "Things I'll Never Say".
Richard Marx, "Hold on to the NIght".
Air Supply, "Here I Am (The One That You Love)". *cringes* but I was in junior high, so I have an excuse, I hope.
Indigo Girls, "Galileo".

Uninvited by Alanis Morrisette...just ask my husband.

Um...Figure .09 by Linkin Park is my big one for reasons I'd rather not say and...

I'm so going to get laughed at here, but since I was eight my favourite song has ever been "What'd I Say" by Ray Charles. *hides* Such a dork, I know.

*points to icon* Djimon...*drooooool*
