The next "Best" assignment IEG gave us this month is this:
Best Song for Stirring Up Memories of Another Time
The trouble with this assignment wasn't finding a song, but narrowing down my many choices.
Because there are so many songs I can hear, and it transports me back to a certain time, a certain place, and helps me relive the memory.
Here are some that come to mind:
Chicago's "Saturday in the Park" takes me back to Cedar Island on the North Fork of the Coeur d'Alene River, to the Turnbow's river property.
"You've Lost That Loving Feeling" by the Righteous Brothers made a comeback in the early 80's. I remember sitting in my boyfriend DG's car in the parking lot of a football field, maybe in Post Falls, and hearing this song come on the radio, and realizing our relationship was coming to an end.
If I hear any song from K.T. Tunstall's album "Eye of the Telescope", it reminds me of our family vacation to Los Angelas in the summer of 2006.
Hearing "I Try" by Macy Gray reminds me of the summer of 2000, when we were getting ready to leave Meridian and move to Kellogg.
Oh, and the list could go on and on!!!
