On Music that Makes Me Think of Certain Things

I love how music takes you to people and places in your head.

I heard a song on pandora today and I was instantly transported to my workout routine in '98.

Then I thought, wouldn't correlating music with certain memories make a good blog post?

Then I thought, well it would be interesting to at least like 4 of my readers. And since I probably only have like 4 readers that would make 100%!

So if you don't find this interesting sorry, but please don't burst my bubble and tell me.

Here is just a few musical correlations I have in my head:

It's My Prerogative
makes me think of rollerskating (badly) at Skateland.

Ace of Base
reminds me of youth group trips to Lake Geneva.

Be My Lover and Another Night makes me think of riding around in my friend's red chevette in high school.

Any Sublime or Better then Ezra song makes me think of one of my college roommates.

Gettin' Jiggy With It
make me think of another.

The entire Refreshment's album reminds me of a friend who lived across the hall from me my freshman year.

Otherside reminds me of chilling out in the social room of my dorm in England.

Rest Stop
reminds me of a breakup.

Because I Got High reminds me of my first date with my husband (and no, we did not get high mom.)

Hunger Strike reminds me of my husband's love of all things Pearl Jam. It also makes me think of car rides.

The Luckiest reminds me of my wedding.

We're Going Down reminds be of driving to my never ending OB appointments while I was pregnant with my son. It was like it was on every. single. time.

Sweet Escape reminds me of my son dancing in his car seat as a toddler.

So there is few.

Do you correlate any music with me?


  1. I remind everyone of the awesomest songs. You left out Runaway!

  2. Anything BNL or BF5 always makes me think of you. I also immediately think of you when I hear a French chef (or anyone French) laughing because of The Little Mermaid.
