Always Something To Remind Me

A song comes on the radio and instantly, you’re transported to a different time and place. Which song(s) bring back memories for you and why? Be sure to mention the song, and describe the memory it evokes.

Several songs remind me of different points in time and being in a different place. And also of people. I can’t mention all the songs that do so because it will be a really long post but I shall hit the memories and people in some cases.

There are a few songs that remind me of an ex-girlfriend or two and the feeling of being young and passionately in love. Some of those songs even bring a pang of pain, yearning and longing and even sorrow and guilt. Sorrow that it ended, guilty as it didn’t work out and longing for someone to be with. Some, more happier, songs also reminds me of the good times that I had and the fun I indulged with said lover. Other songs remind me of the pain and of heartbreaks and the feeling of being lonely.

Still other songs remind me of being hopeful and lively and having a bright future ahead of me and of the vigour of youth. I also think of the life I had back then and how it hasn’t turned out since then. Some songs remind me of the good times I had hanging out with my cousins during our childhood and late teens and how we will never get that carefree moments ever again. But it’s to cherish those wonderful years.
