Do you guys have any specific music that takes you back to a certain time in your life? Almost all my music is like that. THis is probably because I have a terrible habit of listening to one album for months at a time. Here are a few examples:
Mika, Life in Cartoon Motion: This album takes me back to a really, really different time in my life. The point where I was living the college life... Lots and lots of partying and everything that goes along with it. Ever time I listen to these songs, I have vivid memories of dancing on tables. Haha. Yeah, I was one of those.
The Killers, Hot Fuss: When I listen to this album, all I think of is sitting on the back porch at the house I lived in at the time. It had a fantastic back porch, and some of my greatest memories are sitting back there listening to The Killers, painting, and smoking cloves.
The Postal Service, Give Up: I went to a small Baptist college in Shawnee Oklahoma for my first two years of college. I was so, so, so depressed going there. It just wasn't me. Don't even get me started on what I think of private, church-affiliated colleges. I spent a lot of time just driving around aimlessly, listening to this CD. I loved getting lost on my long drives and always hoped I would end up somewhere other than Shawnee. So, every time I listen to this album, I think of long, long drives and lots of sadness.
And for a REALLY way back in time pick- Reel Big Fish, Cheer Up: In high school, I loved punk rock and ska. The high school me makes me laugh a lot. I was so care-free. I still listen to this CD, and it still makes me smile. Sometimes some really old, cheery music is just refreshing, you know?
Music is powerful... I'm not sure what I would do without it.
