James Taylor's "Copperline" takes me back to a moonlit music festival in Telluride Colorado...and hearing JT sing that for the first time - with my dear sweet brother Tony. We were so full of that mountain high and a good musical buzz from 3 days of excellent music....and just everything. That song was like the icing on the cake.
 
Love you, Tony.

I have been listening to the O.S.T. to the movie "Trainspotting".  It is funny how the music is quite dissonant in regards to what is going on in the movie.  But it is great driving music, just keep away from the "dirtiest washroom in Scotland"!

I've been listening to Poe's "Hello" album in the car this week.  It came out the year hiccup and I got married, and we listened to it a LOT around that time.  I was working at a pizza place, and I swear, every time I hear one of the songs from it, I smell sauce.

Simple Minds - "Don't You Forget About Me"
 
 

High school graduation...and how the title of the song was so perfectly timed as I said goodbye to friends I was leaving and wouldn't see again for years...or maybe forever.

This one will always remind me of the day I passed my driver's test.....it was playing on the radio when my sister drove me back from the testing center. And I was all {#Dance}

Anything from this album reminds me of hanging out in our basement rec room with most of my siblings, who still lived at home, listening to records and doing various projects. Those were safe, secure times.

Shawn Colvin songs take me back to the Telluride music festival that I attended 3 years in a row with my brother (and a couple of sisters later).....great live music against the backdrop of swaying aspens and the gorgeous San Juans in that lovely box canyon.......and my brother was so young & healthy.



I miss him.

Whenever I hear the Fleetwood Mac song "Over and Over" (from the album "Tusk") for some reason it takes me back to around the time it was released and the summer of 1979. I had graduated high school and it was the summer before I left home to start school in the fall.

I was walking across a large parking lot near my home and that song was in my head. For some reason I had an out-of-body experience where my mind was floating above my body going higher and higher into the sky and I was looking down at my body walking across that parking lot, and I could hear that song playing like it was a soundtrack in a movie and I was waiting to start seeing credits scroll across my view.

Very strange.

But, whenever I hear that song it takes me back to that moment.

Kathleen Edwards - "Goodnight California"

Takes me back to a diner in Santa Barbara on the last night I lived there....with someone I cared a great deal for. I was saying goodnight to California and to him. The line in this song sounds like what was going on in that brilliant mind of his........


I won't let you in my heart, but you were always on my mind....

I became very familiar with that word unrequited. {#Roflol}

As we get older we forget how difficult it is to be a teenager. I wouldn't want to go through those years again.

Speaking of summer, what a gorgeous day it is in my neck of the woods! {#Sunny}

"Wednesday Morning 3.00 AM" Simon & Garfunkel.

I had this on cassette and was listening to it at some ungodly hour when training to be a signalman. The bloke who was training me used to listed to the police radio in the wee hours (there was no 24 radio back then).

Just as S&G finished the police radio kicked in -
"PC Bloggs to control. I've just come across an RTA involving a lone motorcycle in SumthingOrIther Lane."
"Is an ambulance required?"
"No. Most of his face is missing".

The rest of the shift was very subdued.

That song always takes me back to a warm summer evening in 1978, I was a passenger in my neighbor's pick-up truck, driving back from a hay field after loading the last wagon. I was dusty and tired and I had a teenage crush on my neighbor's daughter (who was dating someone else). This song came on the radio and everything made sense....

Just heard it on the radio yesterday and it reminded me of driving to the swimming pool with my sisters on hot summer days when I was a pre-teen.

Did you have hair like that? That hair was how EVERY 17 year old looked that year. {#Yes} Did you have a stoner boyfriend? {#Lol}
 
I could relate to the younger girl hanging out with boys.....I had a lot of guy friends in junior high.  One of them died in 2009, damn it...way too young...

I loved that scene! I loved that movie because those kids are the exact age I was in 1979 (and I loved My Sharona)......and it takes place in Ohio (it's supposed to be Dayton, even, with the Air Force and they mention being close to Brookeville)! It sure did bring back memories...the hairstyles, the music (the Cars!)...the pop culture is spot on. Those kids did a great job.

Loreena McKennitt - "Mummer's Dance"

Unfortunately, to the day my niece took her life. The "radio" version (more upbeat) of this song had a lot of heavy rotation that week (in 1998). The day it happened, before we KNEW it happened, I couldn't figure out why I was so sad. A very preminatory feeling...and this song was playing as I contemplated my mood.

Children of the Sun - Billy Thorpe

College dorm/cottages of a guy that I was good friends with. He had a crush on me, and I had a crush on his stereo system.
