Aloha Friday

Aloha Friday is the day that they take it easy over at An Island Life and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too.   So I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response. If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and head over to An Island Life to link up. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends.

My question:
Do you have a song(s) that takes you back and reminds you of something from your past?

I have a lot of songs like this, but today I was driving around for work and Whitesnake's "Here I go again" came on the radio.  It made me think of a group of friends I had in high school who actually went to the high school just east of mine, but we became acquainted through extracurricular activities.  For their class song they picked "Here I go again" which was even funny at the time because we graduated in 1997, and that song was released in 1982.  It seems like high school was eons ago, but that song brought back a lot of memories!


  1. I know alot of songs that do take me back to certain times in my life, good or bad. Some I dismiss because I can't handle it and others and good memories.

    It's amazing what music evoke.

  2. Don't laugh: Christopher Cross' "Sailing" reminds me of driving in my mom's old station wagon on my way to 1st grade! LOL! Everytime I hear it on the oldies station (OLDIES?!?!), I get a bittersweet feeling - reminds me of early morning sunrise and going to school!

  3. I'd have to say Club Nouveau's version of Lean On Me - any time I hear it I think of belting it out while driving around with my friends. :)

  4. YES!!! Way too many to even try and pick one!! I love music so it has always been a big part of my life!!!

  5. Yes, lots of songs do that. Some take me back to my hockey season ticket days, others to school, and some to when I was dating TechyDad.

  6. So many! I Feel The Earth Move; Monday,Monday; Black Magic Woman; and so many more take me back to the good old days. LOL

  7. I have tons of them... some that remind me of good times, some that remind me of bad times. Music is huge in my life so almost every song reminds me of something in my life!

  8. Definitely! I think songs can stir up very powerful emotions and memories.

  9. Almost any song will take me back to a certain time. NKOTB takes me back to 7th grade, MC Hammer to 9th grade, House of Pain's "Jump, Jump" brings back memories of 11th grade. Luther Vandross takes me back to when my husband and I started dating.
