I started thinking about all of the other songs that take me back to different times in my life. I remember being really young and dancing around the living room to "Everlasting Love" when no one else was around. I am pretty sure I made up my own dance moves to that. :)
I can't help but smile as I think of my dad and I singing American Pie over and over again when he took me to basketball practices. That has to be one of the longest songs ever, but I memorized every word to it and loved my duet time with my dad.
Before that was "You Are My Sunshine, My Only Sunshine...". My mom used to sing it to me all the time when I was little and I remember being so jealous that my brother was born when I was 6 and she sang it to him too.
As a teenager, I had plenty of mixed cds with songs that meant a lot to me and my friends. When any of them come on the radio I think of different times and friends in my life. Where The Green Grass Grows came on the other day and I can't help but remembering one summer that we listened to this song pretty much anytime my group of friends got together.
What songs take you back and make you smile?
