How Music Goes With Life

Are you a person that associates songs with life experiences or people? I was thinking about this last night as  was driving in my car that I could turn on the radio and find a song that reminds me of someone or something or some sort of life event or time period.

Isn't it crazy how a song can tell time and explain how you feel or how you look at things in life. I can imagine that artists don't really take that into consideration when they are writing songs, they are just writing to make money and sell hits.

When I was thinking of writing this I instantly thought of so many songs but now I am drawing a blank.. let me see if I can think of some....

-Stereo Love reminds me of M
-Bruno Mars song reminds me of M thinking of me
-Dynamite and Ushers new song reminds me of this summer
-Body Guard by Steel Pulse reminds me of T
-Anything Jack Johnson reminds me of J
-Ben Harper reminds me of TB
-Pictures by Kid Rock reminds me of my girls on spring break
-Turn this Car around by Tom Petty reminds me of his concert at Jones Beach
-All Along the Watchtower by Dave Matthews... last song I heard of his at the Meadows yearssss ago
-Anything Mos Def, PanterA, Down, Rage Against the Machines.... reminds me of high school
-Fire Burning by Sean Kingston reminds me of Steve
-All Bob Marley songs remind me of college and our parking lot days


I could go on and on.... but I can barely remember the name of the songs or artists.

Do you have any songs that remind you of people, places or things?

Oh my goodness. I did a very similar post once about all the songs that remind me of my exes/time periods . . . Nightswimming, Case of You, How Sweet by Leona Naess . . . I could go on and on. It's incredible how hearing these songs can recreate those exact emotions!!

Oh yes!! The song "Times like these" reminds me of my current bf. The song "Monster" by Lady Gaga reminds me of my last bf! Evanescence songs remind me of me. I could go on for days too. I wonder if they do realize how much of an effect they have!
