Have you ever noticed how a specific song will immediately take you back to the 1st time you heard it? Or remind you of a concert or a specific person? I was thinking of that the other day, in relation to how many special people we've lost this past year. David Bowie, Gord Downie & David Cassidy, to mention just a few.
One of the sad facts of growing older is that we lose more people, friends, acquaintances, family, favourite actors or musicians.
Do you have a song that personifies you, or perhaps different ones from different times in your life? Here's mine, the soundtrack of my life, so far:
"Who am I? by Jessica Andrews https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oSA-rjH-1Xo
EDIT> An interesting coincidence, my paternal grandmother's name was Rose.
#2 would have to be Valdy's Landscapes (I spend part of my teen years living on the Island):
#3 would probably be Orianthi's "according to you": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pu1aQvm5MrU
#4 would have to be Madonna's "I'll remember" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ubTtANekn4g
"Today" by Joshua Radin, was the song I had played when my husband & I got married in Las Vegas in January 2012. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tpdZa_Cam9k
I have a video I update every few months, of all the photos we have taken of the 2 of us together, I came across this beautiful song by Sara Evans "I could not ask for more, which I use to narrate the video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6XMw6BeMk-E
What songs speak to your heart? What songs personify "YOU"?
