Songs that take you to a particular place...


Recommended Posts

"Ever had a song that upon hearing it immediately takes you back to an emotional place of sorts? I was reading some of the postings earlier about Glen Campbell...Hearing Witchita Lineman always replays the feelings I associate with losing my grandfather in the late sixties...walking around finding his footprints, etc. The song was on the radio alot then and the association is permanent. Kind of a sweet sadness. (This ain't meant to be a bummer topic!)It can be any feeling, really.

When I hear Jackson Browne-Late For the Sky I always think of this house I lived in for a long time on Kenilworth Ave. So much happened there that it's hard to remember it all. There was a guy-me and there was a girl and there were bunny rabbits. Yes bunny rabbits, my girl friend raised rabbits and they were always getting loose. One day I drove up and I thought some one had put a little throw rug in the street. It was her best bunny smushed flat as a pancake. Late For the Sky I still love that tune and I play it too.
