Tuesday Topics–5 Songs That Bring Back Memories

Life. Love.Lauren

I’ve always said that memories can be set to music. Or that every song I hear brings me back to some memory in my life. It is hard to choose just five songs, since really most every song I knew in the past reminds me of something! So here are 5 random songs from my itunes and what they remind me of!

I Wanna Dance With Somebody by Whitney Houston – When I was a kid I took a bus to camp. When I was about 8 years old, this song was super popular and it was on the radio at least once a day on the way to or from camp. It became my favorite song! It reminds me of that summer and my first crush, who was an older boy who also was on my bus to camp.

Paradise By The Dashboard Light by Meat Loaf – This one reminds me of youth group dances. It was one of those songs they played every time! I always thought the lyrics were funny and also sad!

Me and Julio by Simon and Garfunkel – This reminds me of my freshman year at college and a friend of mine who was into Simon and Garfunkel. I was into them too, but I think I heard this song for the first time with her. Then, it reminds me of Evan and Jaron – my favorite band – because they covered it in one of the shows I was at and it was awesome!

Breakaway by Kelly Clarkson – reminds me of when I was a school counselor at a school for kids with behavior issues. At the end of the school year there was a performance and some of the girls sang this song. I listened to them practicing it about a hundred times, so it reminds me of them!

Something to Believe In by Poison – I remember that this song came on my radio the day that my dog died when I was 12. I remember it made me cry.

How about you? Does music bring back memories? Do any of these songs hold memories for you?

I don't think I've ever even heard of any of those songs before. My musical education is sadly lacking! But I can also get extremely emotional about some songs. I remember the first time I moved back to the U.S. by myself, a Taylor Swift song came on the radio--it was my little sister's favorite song, and I just started bawling....
