Music Memories

Do you have any songs that instantly bring back memories when you hear them?
They all remind me of a time, a group of friends, or a memory
Its amazing how much impact a song can have

Red Neck Yacht Club
Craig Morgan

My parents family friends who we have grown up with
every time we all get together on the lake we have to listen to this song
it sums up the group of friends to a T
we even change the lyric - that's BOB he's our president to that's RON he's our president
[one of the ring leaders of the group's name is RON so its ever so fitting!]

Piano Man
Billy Joel
All of the Greek chapters at the University of Toledo had themed songs
and this happened to be some of my best guy friend's theme song
it brings back the best memories every time I hear it on the radio

New York
Jay Z

Justin had just downloaded this song right before we went on the trip
and i think it was on single repeat the entire trip!
it quickly became the theme song for our trip

Hang on Sloopy
The McCoys

One of my best friend's in college Jenna, and I would blare this song before game day at school
We would open up the sunroof of my car and spell out O-H-I-O during the song collaboratively [her on one side, and i was on the other]
I love it when I hear it every Friday to pump us up for the next game!

Chicken Fried

Zac Brown Band

Our group of friends would sing this song at the top of our lungs a few years back
Its a feel good song, even if it is over played on the radio it will always make me happy

All I Want for Christmas Is You

Mariah Carey

This was my favorite Christmas song, and I put it as my ring tone
Little did I know that my roommate Aly despised this song, so it quickly became her ring tone forever
and every time it is played on the radio I have to send her a quick text and "sing" to her - i'm sure she LOVES it!!

do you have any songs that bring back instant memories?
i would love to hear about them!

Any Amy Grant song from her Christmas album where she's wearing a red coat with a white snowy background takes me back to living in our first house in Lincoln. There are a gazillion songs that remind me of things. I love when I hear one and have a GOOD memory! and of course "End of the Road" reminds me of my cousin and I singing it over and over and over again after I got the Boyz 2 Men cd for Christmas a LONG time ago. :)

I really do loooove it! Ha..Ha..Ha.. (I hope you sensed the sarcasm)!

Tiffany said...

LOOOVE the list! I could make a list a mile long of songs that bring back the memories!!!

Jenn @ West Sac Honey said...

OMG All I Want For Christmas is my all time favorite song!! Ha that's going to get a good laugh out of Aly!

Love this post, too cute!

That's hilarious about the Mariah Carey song, I HATE it as well. I thought I was the only one.

Glad you're back (like I have any room to talk, I suck at blogging).

Ahhh, I love this post!! Music totally dictates my life, hehehe ;-) "Red Neck Yacht Club" is OUR boat's song too!!! And we sing "Greg... he's our president" :-D Too funny!

"Poker Face" came out right before we went to Vegas in 2009, so it ALWAYS will make me think of that trip!

Cute story about you and Aly :-D

Tiffany said...

Haha, how funny! (Poor Aly)...It really is a great song!

Tiffany said...
