Don't it make you wanna dance

I don't think I'm alone in saying I LOVE music.  Music, so much like scent, can transport you back to a time or memory in an instant.  Certain songs/artists bring on a flood of emotion as I'm carried back to a time I'd tucked in the back of my mind.

Reba.  She will forever and ever remind me of my mama.  My parents were really unhappy in their marriage, and I remember my mom listening to Reba's heartache songs all the time.  A few years ago I bought me and my mom tickets to Reba and George Strait, and it makes me so happy I could share that with her.

Speaking of George Strait, the first time Steve and I danced (we were only friends at the time) was to The Chair, my very favorite Strait song.  Everytime I hear it I remember exactly how I felt, like we were the only ones in the room, steadily guiding him (he's not big on dancing) and feeling a little ashamed of myself for feeling that way.  I was involved with someone at the time, but there was no ignoring the chemistry between us.  (For the record, Steve and I weren't involved until things ended with the other person.  I'm no ho!)

Don't Rock the Jukebox by Alan Jackson.  Ever since Liam could talk he's been obsessed with that song.  He used to think the words were don't rock the juicebox.  Funniest thing ever.  We got to see him at Country Thunder last year, but Liam was so exhausted he missed his song :(

Those are my main examples for ya.  The emotions, sounds, smells, I remember everything about past memories when I hear those songs.  Such a great feeling of nostalgia. 

I'd love to hear your songs!  Maybe some of you have a song that reminds you of falling in love for the first time, or a first heartbreak?  I live for these type of stories!

Reba, George and Garth will always remind me of my childhood! Love them. My mom and dad saw them all before they were big-when they just performed at rodeos. It was always fun hearing them tell us about it.

Makes me smile! Reminds me of when I was younger! We spent a lot of time in the car with the country music blasting! Thanks for the trip down memory lane~

Love this post! I got to see George in Vegas last year with Martina Mcbride and it was one of the best concerts I've been to. Country music is "home" for me :)

Oooh Jack Johnson, 311, Pepper, etc. remind me of my ex and Brad Paisley used to remind me of him, but luckily Brad Paisley has transcended into my new relationship. Hubby and I love the song "Then". That's one of our songs :) I like Liam's version. Hehe
