    Remembering

    I've done this on several occasions. I always have music with me where ever I am or where ever I go. If there is a significant event going on in my life, depending on what I'm listening to at that point in time, I almost always attach memories to particular songs. When I listen...

    Opeth In The Rain

    I attach people and memories and even mindsets to music. When I listen to those songs afterwards I can relive it, feel it, become it again.Opeth takes me back to when I was still in high school. I recall sitting in the pouring rain for hours, repeatedly listening to the Damnation...

    I Always Have

     Even from when i was in kindergarden, i'd remember songs playing when mom would take me to school, and the music would be playing. Just different instances i would remember songs ..and i could tell u the year they came out-because of my music/time association.

    Hand In Glove!

    To me, they go hand in hand, or indeed 'Hand in Glove' ;-) I have many songs that remind me of people and places, some good, many bittersweet, but music evokes feeling and emotion like nothing else.

    To Use A Platitude, Music Is The Soundtrack Of My Life

    As a proud owner of an I pod, I take it everywhere. With the introduction of Pandora on my smart-phone I now am made aware of new music regularly. Sometimes the music makes itself a part of your memories. There is little better than hearing a particular song and realizing...this...

    Sing Until Your Heart Caves In

    "Runaway" by Bruno Mars. that time when my current bestest friend opened up to me, telling me about how her boyfriend told her to listen to this song; it may not be about us but it reminds me of how beautiful and true that love was for you. "Brighter than Sunshine" by Aqualung...

    Ultimate Rewind

    I've done this since I was a child.  In fact there are songs from the 60s and 70s that are attached to specific places in my childhood. Lately, though, I've been playing all the songs on my Nano and iTouch and whoa! - talk about unnerving.  I tend to change my...

    Memory Lane

    Almost every single song on my ipod is there because it reminds me of a time past, or someone dear to me. Music is very much tied to memory for me.

    Leave By Jojo

    I used to sing songs like Leave by JoJo with "erin" substituted for you because she was a good friend of mine who I used to jest with a lot. Other songs simply remind me of people who liked them.

    Cannot Generalize It

    When Rolling Stone magazine gave their opinion on the best song ever, they chose Bob Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone". I thought WTF? To me music is a very personal experience cuz everyone has a special memory attached to songs, so you really can't vote on the best song EVER...

    Sad Moments, Mostly...

    Whether I love or hate a song is closely linked to what happened at the time I first heard the song or an event or a period in my life. I remember the first time I watched Titanic. It was Christmas Day, my mum's birthday in 1997. I didn't really understand it but I cried that...

    It Just Happens

    Music is such a huge part of my life (both I and so many of my friends are musically inclined) and it's almost as if I have a sound track playing for an after life's most memorable moments. Then of course I start thinking about the people who I shared those memories with and the...

    The Most Beautiful Thing...

    Is listening to songs and feeling them... allowing them to bring back so many sensations and memories. Giving me confidence for the future and putting me in a better  mood. Music says things to me that words cannot... I love it!

    Listening to Red Light Special (Gerald Halls's

    Remix) - TLC. This makes me reminisce to getting ready for my boyfriend in my old university house - those moments I used to blast music before going out to visit him. I felt so excited and confident.
