I designated Coldplay's song, Viva La Vida, as our "theme song" for moving. I just love this song! I'm sure you've heard it because I think it's the #1 song right now. I don't know much about the lyrics but the tune just makes me feel happy and sad all at the same time. I also think it could be a good running song too... it has a good beat.
Now when I hear that song, it makes me think about our decision to move and all the emotions we've gone through so far. It also got me reminiscing about all of the other songs that remind me of certain events in my life.
For instance, whenever I hear Enya I think of when I was younger and we would drive to California or Utah to see my grandparents. It seemed like my dad would always play Enya. It's so funny because when I hear them now, I feel like I'm sitting in our van driving along on the interstate and staring out the window.
Second Song. Coldplay's song called Yellow. (I must really like Coldplay!) That song totally takes me back to the time when Tom and I were dating. We both loved that song and listened to it over and over.
Third Song. Almost any song by the Cranberries reminds me of my sister Jenny! I can't remember for sure, but we may have shared a room when she was really into the Cranberries. Probably "Dreams" and "Linger" are the ones I remember the most.
I have to include a couple of country songs too! I was really into country music during high school, and I still like to listen to it every now and then. Garth Brook's, The Dance, reminds of when me and my best friends Jeni and Bobbie were dating guys who all happened to be best friends too. They loved Garth Brooks and esp. that song! Lonestar's song Amazed reminds me of Jeni and Bobbie too. We had front row seats at their concert (we were in high school) and got lucky enough to meet the lead singer after the concert and get autographs. I could probably write a long post about that concert and how much fun it was. I'd post some photos of it but they're in boxes right now!
What songs bring back memories from different stages of your life???
