Songs As Time Machines


Who else can listen to a song and be immediately transported to a memory or past season of life? "Round Here" by Counting Crows takes me right back to my childhood. The entire New Beginning album by Tracy Chapman takes me to a trip I took with my family when I was around six or seven years old to Charleston, South Carolina. "Absolutely Cuckoo" by the Magnetic Fields is a song I had on my MySpace(!) page shortly after Jeffrey and I started dating in 2007. Every time I hear a song attached to a memory, I am truly shocked at the power it has to take me back to a specific time and place. So, I'd love to know: what's a song that has a powerful memory attached to it for you? Tell me in the comments below.
