Music Memories

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

I. Love. Music. Period. It can make my day when the right song comes across those speakers, or an older song can bring back so many memories. Here lately, we've been listening to Magic 96.5 out of Bham and they play a good mixture of today and yesterday. Well, as soon as a song comes on, I immediately assocaite it with a time, place, person... but mostly, movies!

If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.” Albert Einstein

Let's see if you have the same reaction to some of these that I did...

{Benny and the Jets} 27 Dresses (the bar scene)

{I Don't Want to Miss a Thing} Armageddon (the animal crackers and sweet talks)

{I Have Nothing} The Bodyguard (the awards show on stage performance)

{The Way You Make Me Feel} — Centerstage (the final dance)

{Every Breath You Take} — The Replacements (the bar scene)

{Time After Time} — Romy and Michele's High School Reunion (the reunion dance)

{Easy Like Sunday Morning} — The Zoo Keeper (the wedding scene)
Please tell me I'm not the only one who does this! What are some of your songs that takes you back instantly?


  1. Oh my goodness! I promise you I was just thinking about doing a post like this!!! Bennie and the Jets from 27 dresses and Time after Time from Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion were on my list!!!!! I just ordered Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion from Amazon and watched it last Monday before the big game!!!!

    But now you have me wanting to watch Armageddon!!!

    It's amazing how a song can take you back to a memory!

  2. YES! Center Stage and Romy & Michell's High School Reunion!!

  3. Omgsh! That Benny and the Jets bar scene from 27 is dresses is hilarious lol I loved this post, have a great day!

  4. Hahaha! I was just thinking about how powerful a song can be. It can take you back, make you happy or sad. I LOVE Armageddon! And Center Stage. And 27 Dresses. ALL of them!

    I always "re-create" the dance - Time of My Life from Dirty Dancing. Hard not too. I'll even tryto do the jump while in the car!

    Music is a powerful thing...

  5. Every single one of those songs makes me think of the same exact movie ;)

  6. Haha YES! I always always think of Center Stage when I hear the way you make me feel. Same with Romy and Michelle and Armageddon!

  7. Romy & Michelle! That one definitely takes me back!
