I GO BACK

Do you have songs that take you right back to a certain time in your life? I listen to these songs and go me right back to hanging out with my girls or a certain someone in college... Here's a little trip down Memory Lane with Mrs. Jetplane this morning...







Burn one Down - Ben Harper

My ex in college introduced me to him back in 1998. He was his favorite person in the entire world and had met him several times. He was borderline obsessed with the man. He is now my go to long-distance driving music and has phenomenal live shows.








Body is a Wonderland by John Mayer
I distinctly remember junior year of college the first time my (same) ex (Mr. Baseball) played this for me in his is apartment. He said it made him think of me. Yeah...that's all this girl needed. My ex also wrote poetry...yeah I know. He once referred to me in his poem as his girl with coffee and 2 creams complexion (I was tanorexic back in the day). I don't know why but that has always stuck with me.








One More Time - Daft Punk
Oh yeah... Mrs. Jetplane was hardcore lover of techno music. I would rock out with the best of them at my college's dance clubs.... no doubt. I still enjoy listening to it while working out... mr and I might be driving home from a night out...we might pop it in and shake our groove things on the way.....Oh who likes to party...we like to party!!!

Some of the music may have even been busted out at our wedding.... see here is proof!!

Glowsticks and all... I bought them at the Dollar Store. The best $3.00 I ever spent.

It got crazy up on the dance floor... and yes that's my maid of honor...don't worry... she's a Doctor.








Gravel - Ani Defranco


One of if not my favorite singer/performer is Ani Defranco. This song reminds me of my friend K and I rocking out to it in her green Cavalier and screaming out the words..."You may keep me from ever being happy but you're not going to stop me from having FUN!!!" No truer words were ever spoken..or so we thought.









If I had a million dollars - Barenaked Ladies


This song automatically takes me to living in the sorority house driving around campus, perhaps skipping class, in Lou's red Acura, sun roof open and singing our hearts out... you want to stare at us...go right ahead!!

To quote my sorority's song...

"These are the days you'll remember. Never before and never since, I promise, will the whole world be warm as this. And as you feel it, you'll know it's true that you are blessed and lucky. It's true that you are touched by something that will grow and bloom in you."

That song is a perfect way to explain my college experience.... oh how I miss you...

Music always brings me back! I love how a song can instantly transport me back in time to a memory, place or person.

It Is Everlasting said...

Oh Ani DiFranco! My best friend and I were obsessed. We'd sing Both Hands and Gravel over and over on road trips. I also remember the first time I heard John Mayer... (I know, what was I, living in a cave?) it was freshman year and I was sitting in someone's dorm room and she played "Comfortable" I fell in love. Awwww I miss college so much. Those friendships and times together are so precious.
