As we were coming into the new year, I became pretty nostalgic when it comes to music. Listening to songs that meant so much to me that I don’t necessarily listen to all the time. I realized that all these songs are ones that made a huge impact on my life in one way or another.
Each one of these songs brings back a specific memory in my mind that is filled with happiness. We all have them, and that is the beauty of music. It holds a special place in our hearts and holds the power to bring back happiness for just over 3 minutes.
Below are just a few of the songs that “made” me who I am today and hold a special place in my heart. Let me know what your songs are and maybe the story behind them.
- I Will Follow You Into The Dark – Death Cab for Cutie
- Vegas Skies – The Cab
- Fred Bear – Ted Nugent
- Jamie All Over – Mayday Parade
- Only One – Yellowcard
Most of these songs bring me back to a time with good friends. Yellowcard and Death Cab bring me back to a time when I was feeling super low but these songs and groups brought me out of a funk. Ted Nugent (random, I know) reminds me of my dad. Every morning when he would drop me off at my grandmother’s house we would listen to Fred Bear. It was just a happy way to start my mornings for over a year.
As always, the songs above are linked so you can give them a listen.
