Music Memories

While listening to the radio today, a song came on that instantly transported me back to another time when I'd heard it. I like to call this phenomenon a "music memory" because the same memory always triggers when I hear the particular song. Music memories are created by strong emotions--think love, heartbreak, joy, pain--and by significant life events. Here are a few of mine:

A fun night at First Avenue

Driving home in the rain with a friend

Running through the morning mist in France

Realizing I had to end things with someone I'd been seeing off and on for about three years

New Years Eve senior year of high school

Running in Germany with one of my best friends

Driving across town when I was 16

An ex apologizing after an argument

What are yours?
