I love music. I always have. I wish I could sing in tune, but I still sing along with a tune!
Lately I've realized how much music is attached to certain events in my life. Of course being part of a couple, my wedding song is sentimental to me. Ours was the typical 1990's wedding song by All for One "I swear". Sometimes when we dance and Tony sings this to me (after 1, 2 or more drinks ;O) ) I can still shed a tear! As time went by Alan Jackson's "Remember when" became a song I could relate to ( although I like to think we are in life only half way through the song!).
The summer all star team of 2009 that Jarett played with is forever linked in my mind with "I've got a Feeling" by the Black Eyed Peas. I can still see their smiling faces when they went with 1 loss all season. That was a summer to remember for those boys - OK for the parents too! And playing guitar when I was younger- the first cool song I learned was the beginning to "smoke on the water" and Poison's "Talk Dirty to Me".
"Please Forgive Me" by Bryan Adams reminds me of Tony all the time. The verse I love " Still feels like our best times are together, feels like the first touch. Still getting closer baby, can't get close enough. Still holding on , your still number one. I remember the smell of your skin- I remember everything. I remember all your moves. I remember you" Brings me back to Club Mirage 1993 dancing with Tony. Ahhh those were the days of early love!
Whenever I'm with my friend Donna- Josh Groban is on. Its like her husband is letting us know he's there with us. Its really quite comforting in a happy/ sad kind of way.
So I guess i wondered: Do other people attach songs with events like me? I'm sure they do. Its a lovely way to sink back into memories gone by.
