This whole writing every day thing has forced me to kind of drown in nostalgia. I’ve been racking my brain to attach a story to the given prompt and as someone who kind of has a shit memory, it’s been hard.
So instead of trying to craft a long post about memory, here’s a list of songs and a time in my life they remind me of.
“Warrior” – Kesha
Sophomore year of college. My friends apartment and the parties that were had there. The feeling of being young and carefree.
“Marvelous Things” – Eisley
Thirteen year old me who has a lot of feelings and doesn’t know what to do with them. I was very much trying to make sure I wasn’t “like the other girls.”
“Total Eclipse of the Heart” – Bonnie Tyler
My sisters favorite song. She plays it every time we’re in the car and I can instantly picture her singing her heart out while I’m in the passenger seat cracking up.
“This is How We Do It” – Montell Jordan
Senior year of high school and all the football games we went to. I’m pretty sure we had shirts with the lyrics and it always played at our pep rallies.
“Goodbye Earl” – Dixie Chicks
Childhood hanging out at my cousins house, running around their neighborhood and just being kids. This Dixie Chicks album was one of the first albums I ever owned and wow, what a classic.
