Music has always been a big part of my life.
I remember cruising in my Dad's CJ5 when I was younger, him singing along to Phil Collins. I can remember getting my first Guns N Roses tape and wearing it out on my tape player when I was in elementary school. There were dances in middle school, prom in high school. Breaking up, making up, having fun with friends.
All memories have songs that mark periods in my life.
Hearing the Dixie Chicks "I can love you better" takes me back to my junior year and sneaking out of school in my best friend Sara's trunk. Sublime's "Summertime" constantly reminds me of the summer I started dating my husband. The Highwaymen CD reminds me of Mr. Me and I's trip to Charleston a year after we were married. Or Bob Marley, any Bob Marley immediately reminds me of our birthday trip Key West.
For awhile, I didn't listen to music as much I as use to. Opting to drive my husband crazy with the sound of my voice when we traveled. But lately, now that Roo loves to groove to the music, it's on constantly in my house. Forget cartoons, we want to jam to the Beatles or sing along with Jack Johnson.
And if you asked me to pick just one song that would be considered my favorite... I doubt I could. So many songs have a place in my heart. Our wedding song, my drive fast song, my relaxing song, my lullaby, there's so many to choose from.
Maybe you can do better, what's your fave?
