Music Memories

Music and memories... I still find it amazing how closely those two are entwined. It's like by hearing a song, you are immediately transported back to a certain event or memory in your life. You remember the exact emotions you felt during that time, and it's like the music has left an imprint on your life. It evokes a certain feeling every time you listen to it, something personal that is connected to the past.

I listen to "Gotta Get Thru This" by Daniel Bedingfield and automatically remember the summer of 2009, sitting in a crowded plane on the way to an awesome vacation in Taiwan. I had a headache, I was drinking ginger ale, and I vividly remember listening to the song. Or it's "Stronger" by Kayne West- whenever I hear the song played anywhere, I can't help but think of the summer of 2010, and the countless times it was played on my i-pod while at Gold's Gym, working out and fired up about the World Cup matches going on.

Songs like these will never be forgotten. And some songs you just associate with certain memories or feelings or time periods in your life. And that's why I love sharing music. A song can be personal enough to mean something really deep to you and yet sound completely different to each person. Just like people have different memories of the same event. So take a look back and find the songs that have really made up your life and are holding memories for you. Cry, laugh, hate, and love them as you listen to them again and pinpoint that one moment in your life. And even if you don't, at least you'll have the perfect soundtrack for when they make a movie production out of your life story.


  1. when I was in your age, I dare not resist the surroundings. Then I lose something which make all my life under torture.
    Nice to see you are so sensitive about music memories. Be aware that never make it painful.
