Isn’t It Amazing How Music Can Transport You?

You know, I grew up mostly in the 80’s and 90’s so I listen to that if I am in the mood for pop music. This morning I was listening to the 80’s hit station on Slacker Radio  and a song I have not heard in a long time reduced me to tears in like 3 seconds! Some of it is my crazy hormones from being pregnant I know, but not all. In a second, I was taken back to when I heard that song playing and it was when someone was breaking up with me in 8th grade I think. I instantly felt all those emotions when I heard the song. 

 This is the song I am talking about. 

To this day, I can barely listen to Van Halen. My ex fiancee was a huge fan and when I say huge I mean HUGE fan. He turned me on to them and there are songs that I can not even hear the opening strains to because I will totally lose it. He also was a big fan of Sammy Hagar’s and there is almost an entire album I have trouble with and I can’t even begin to talk about Brother Caine. Sigh. 

Music is amazing in that like a smell I can be taken back to a place and time instantly. I will leave you with a few of my favorites from the 80’s to enjoy

Enjoy your weekend!
