Songs that bring me back

I love music. I am one of those weirdos that can remember most of the lyrics to (most) songs after only hearing them 2 or 3 times. Music also has a way a bringing me back to a certain time in my life. (Doesn't that do it to all of us??) Here is look back...

"Regulate" Warren G ft. Nate Dogg

I was in middle school when this jam came into my life. I used my babysitting money and bought the CD and had to hide it from my mom because this was on the cover

Still to this day when ever I have a Nathan in one of my classes I have to call him Nate Dogg and then I begin rapping. I can't help it.

"Save Tonight" Eagle Eye Cherry

"I'm Sorry Now" Jude

I completely remember driving around with my best friend in high school, blasting both of these CDs. These two songs always make me smile when I hear them. I was kind of pretentious in high school and listened to a lot of music that no one had heard of. I also made sure everyone knew it. That was lame of me. 

"Lose Yourself" Eminem

I was an undergrad in my teaching program, and one of my professors had us read the lyrics and listen to this song. He connected it to the first days of school. You really do get one chance to make an imprint on some kids. 

"405" Death Cab For Cutie (or really anything from that CD)

Freshman year of college I was introduced to Death Cab. I can't not think about my freshman dorm when any of their songs come on. 

This little adventure also sucked me into the wormhole that is Youtube and I found this guy. Acoustic guitar and a violin? I'll take two please.

Alain de Courtenay
He has some great covers and I like his originals that I listened to as well. 

Do you have any songs that bring you back?

It is amazing how songs can take us back. Every now and then, I'll start listening through my CD collection on my commute to work instead of my iPod. I haven't bought a CD in years, so these songs set my mind wandering down memory lane to high school, college, old friends, old boyfriends, etc. I love it! :)Makes the 30 minutes fly by!
