For The Love of Lists: Lyrics

Songs have this amazing power to transport you. It could be an entire song or just a line that sends your mind racing back through time and space.

These get me every time.

Boston/ Augustana

I think I'll go to Boston, I think I'll start a new life.

March 18, 2008. I did indeed.

Like A Virgin/ Madonna

The entire song!

Red Fisher Price Boom box on my shoulder jamming out in our backyard like I had any clue what virgin meant.

This is around that same time. Lace headband ode to Madonna and I had the arm full of plastic bracelets too (though not in this photo).

Somewhere Over the Rainbow/ Israel Kamakawiwo'ole

Oh the whole thing, the way it sounds, the way it feels, the way I feel when I hear it. Oh just every word and every oooooo.

Walking down the isle towards my love.

Red Red Wine/ UB40

Red, red wine you make me feel so fine, you keep me rocking all of the time.

Had nothing to do with the lyrics at all. This song always takes me back in time to weekends on the road between mom and dad's house singing at the top of my lungs with Kayla.

What song did you think of the moment you started reading this post?

Have a wonderful weekend!
I'm off to San Francisco to spend the weekend with the lovely Leigh.

Since I was a little girl 'Drift Away' by Dobie Gray has been one of my favorite songs. I would listen to it on my brother's K-Tel album and sing along. On the back on my ipod I have "Rhythm and rhyme and harmony. You've helped me along." engraved.
