I Go Back - Pt. 1!

Now Playing - I Go Back - Kenny Chesney (haven't done one of these in a while, eh? ;))

Hi Guys!!



So a while back I did a post about songs that bring up memories of my friends (here it is :)). Now on that same stream of consciousness I wanted to do a post about when songs bring me back to moments in my life. 

This post started thinking about one special moment and others followed shortly after that :).

The defining moment?


I cannot for the life of me hear 'Ho Hey' by The Lumineers and not think of this magical day. It was a perfect day with amazing people, great dancing and a beautiful couple that show me every time I see them what true love is. I reminisce whenever I hear it and wish I could go back and redo it all over again :).

Another moment?

My first musical sacrifice for a boy.

I downloaded a Coldplay song. Yep I said it. Coldplay. Not a huge fan of their music but when I went on my second date with a boy I downloaded 'Yellow' because he really liked it. I also downloaded 'Photograph' by Nickelback so you can guess where that dating ended up. It's funny how whenever I hear that song I immediately change it now..well not funny, just instinct ;).

Moving forward!

When I found my favourite all-time band.

Cruising in Slave Lake. Going down the dirt road that is now paved. Stopping at the train tracks with my bestie by my side choosing to play her 'alternative' station on my Sirius radio and what do I hear? The smooth yet rough, sultry yet kick-ass, mature yet youthful voice of one Hayley Williams. At first I don't give it a real second thought but when the 'Misery Business' chorus hits and the power that is Paramore is unleashed, I get hooked. This powerful female presence is dominating and strong. I want to be this girl. Come later to find out she's younger than me, but heck you can admire those younger in age than you. I fell in love, and am still crushing hard on that orange haired rock star. She is one of my idols.

A musical memory with my Dad.

Now I don't have a ton of music based memories with my Dad but here's one. It was winter. We were driving uptown to get Chinese food in my Dad's Ford F-150 in red. My Dad had the Bif Naked album in his CD changer (my Dad literally rocks ;)). And the song 'I Love Myself Today' comes on. Right out of the bat a great rockin' song. Of course my Dad cranks it because, well, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree on that one ;). The lyric 'look at you all puffed up in your bed red truck' flows from the speakers and I can't believe this moment because I. AM. IN. A. BIG. RED. TRUCK!!! Memory solidified in my mind and my Dad and I are badasses forever. Fin. :).

Thanks for reading. More to come in future :).
