A song comes on the radio and instantly, you’re transported to a different time and place. Which song(s) bring back memories for you and why? Be sure to mention the song, and describe the memory it evokes.
Music has the uncanny ability to transport us instantly back in time. Simply by listening to a familiar song that had meaning in our lives, emotions are conjured up & we are flooded with memories of a particular moment or era.
Just yesterday, my husband & I were reminiscing about a song that will forever be etched in our hearts as representing a time of days gone by. A time when our children were little & our days were filled with finding ways of entertaining them for hours on end.
On any given Saturday &/or Sunday, the same request could be heard in our home. “Daddy, play Brucer” The 45’s would be popped on the record player & the sound of “Brucer” would fill our basement. Our kids, my husband & more often than not, our niece & nephew could be found happily parading & dancing around our rec room as they enjoyed Mr. Springsteen belting out his tune, Glory Days.
As we listened to this song play yesterday, smiles crept across our faces & we were once again filled with memories of the simplest of times with our kids. 25+ years have passed, they were Glory Days indeed!
