Music Monday

I've been thinking about writing a music post for a while.  Ever since Casey wrote this post in September, I kept thinking it would be fun to write a post like it.

I have a 30 minute commute one way to work.  Listening to music can sometimes make it go by a little more quickly...especially when it takes me on a trip down memory lane.  This happens most often when I start listening through my CD collection.

Yes, CDs.

That's why it takes me down memory lane.  Do you know how long it's been since I actually bought a CD??  I've downloaded entire albums.  Although, last November, I did grab Lady Antebellum's Christmas CD off a display at a gas station on a whim.  Lady Antebellum AND Christmas music all in one?  I couldn't resist. 

I digress. 

Here are some songs that send my mind on a journey through time.

Authority Song by Jimmy Eat World

I first heard this song during my sophomore year of college.  My friend (and roomie) Brooke and I still call this our "Roomie Song".  It's so fun, and I usually have to listen to it twice so I can sing the melody one time and the harmony the next.  :)
Sadie Hawkins Dance by Relient K
This one is both good and bad.  It reminds me of the first boyfriend that I was really, truly in love with.  He is the one who first got me listening to Relient K.  That's actually the good part.  We had a lot of fun and good times together.  But this song also reminds me of my freshman year of college.  When two other girls and I were put together in a room the size of a closet, and thank goodness they became my "evil ex-roommates." 
Shiver by Coldplay
This one is another college memory (lots of them are).  A guy I was dating during my junior year let me borrow this Coldplay CD.  I don't know what it is about this song, but it reminds me of him every single time.
For Good from Wicked
Let's note that someone took this video who probably shouldn't have, but what's better than Kristin and Idena on stage together in this show???  Truthfully, the entire album from Wicked reminds me of college.  We performed these songs in recitals, and my friend Becca and I sang them at the top of our lungs in my car.  This song pretty much sums up my entire college experience, I think.
Crush by Lila McCann

Anyone remember her?  I have her CD.  This one takes me back to high school.  My cousin, Jaime, and I used to sing through this one!
Song for You by Chicago

This reminds me of playing Burger Time on the Intelevision with my dad.  He would put on records, and we would play video games together.  I specifically remember this song playing.
Honestly, I could probably go on and on, but I think I'll stop there for now!

Are there any songs that remind you of specific times in the past??

Or like The Mamas and the Papas singing Creeque Alley or really any of their songs while taking me to work :)

This is awesome! I just went through some old high school CDs the other day and have been listening to Something Corporate every since! :)

Casey said...

So glad I could inspire a post for you :) Isn't it so crazy how music can just instantly make you think of a certain time of life?

Oh, I love For Good. What a magical song. It's funny, I did a Musical Monday post today. Great minds think alike. :)

Oh my gosh... Crush by Lila McCann! You just made my day! This post totally inspires me to bust out my book of CDs from high school and college and listen to them!
