Songs That Take You Back
Music can spark memories, and we all have those songs that remind us of specific times in our life, specific people, I'll share some of mine.
Los Del Rios-Macarena. It's rare that you hear it these days, but this is a song that so CLEARLY reminds me of fifth grade. In fact, we used to do the dance in P.E. back in the day!
Christina Aguilera-Genie In A Bottle. Reminds me of 8th grade and feeling awesome cause every dude was in love with Britney Spears, and I had fallen for Christina and I felt exceptional for that.
Beyonce-Irreplaceable. Not exactly my favorite song but it was the biggest song on the charts in 2006 when I got my first radio job at 98.5 KLUC in Las Vegas and that song was on all...the...time...
Lauv-I like me better. This song reminds me of when I first met my fiance back in early 2017. The song didn't really take off for another year or so but it was so relatable, particularly with the lyric "I like me better when I'm with you".
And lastly, Taylor Swifts-Lover, which came out just a year ago but was massive when I first moved to Boise back in January, and was originally going to be our "first dance" song at our wedding, but because of Covid, the date changed and we haven't had it yet so the song will likely change as well.
What are some songs that stick out as particularly special in your life? Not necessarily your favorite, but ones that take you back to a specific time or place.
