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!
