Resting and Reminising

Today was spend in bed with a kink in my back and my neck. I decided to try and update my Facebook and to be honest just try and figure it out. The whole thing about sharing everything with the world was a little intimidating, come to find out with a few clicks I just share what I want and with who I want. Whew!! I don't know why I was so intimidated by it. All the family is on sharing away and I was afraid to say much (who knows why).

Anyway, before long I was chating along with my niece and we started talking about music and what songs remind of us who. Boy did we go back to my Mom and her mom and my sisters and what songs reminded us of certain people, friends and events. The list of songs was getting pretty long as you can imagine.

Music from certain times in our lives is one of those things that you always remember. I'll share with you all that a song by Ray Charles "It's crying time again" reminds me of my Mom.

Mel and I got to thinking that this was a good topic for a blog post since we like music so much, we wondered what songs bought you all fond memories.

If you'd like, feel free to post a comment with the title of a song that takes you back to a fond memory. We'd like to go back with you and remember where we heard it for the first time, or for a moment think of the person that it reminds us of. And, if by chance it's a song we've never heard before, you'll be exposing us to something new. We look forward to hearing from you all. This could be quite fun and a nice way to remember some old friends in the new year!!

I hope Mel doesn't mind but she shared that "Going to the Chapel" reminded her of a wedding she was in where she and all the bridesmaids sang this song to the bride on the way to the church.


  1. This one is easy for me!
    We All Live In A Yellow Submarine, by the Beatles. I remember sitting in a pushchair, wearing a yellow raincoat and thinking they are singing about me!!

  2. Going to the Chapel reminds me when I was a little girl singing that song all day.....

  3. Oh, gosh....I guess all the "doo-wop" songs that were sung accapella remind me of my teen well as the Motown groups (like the Supremes, the Temptations, etc.) TOO many songs to list them...but you know the ones!

  4. "lay that pistol down" reminds me of being young and Mom singing that to me. "Desperado" was my son's favorite song and I can hear him singing it in the shower. Great topic!
