Hearing ‘That’ Song (part 1) / Playlist

The song that reminds you of that time, place, person. I love the way a song can immediately make you remember the first time you heard it, the second time, the fiftieth time. I love how one song can have an upbeat tune, but still make you feel sad because of what it makes you think of. I love how one song can make you feel so many different things at once, because that one song is linked with ten different memories.

My play list for you today is of my top twenty memory songs; those songs that I hear and immediately think of the context in which I’ve heard them before. Some are good memories, some are bad memories, but all of these songs are really important to me. I hope you enjoy listening to them.

“I wish I had a mango tree in my backyard, with you standing next to me.”
