Music For the Soul

Have you ever heard that one song that reminds you of that one person you can never get out of your skin?
Or a place you've been to? Or an experience you've had?

The person can be "newer" so to speak... Or someone from the past...
It can be a song that wasn't even around when you spent time with that individual.
And that person can be anyone... a past love, a current love, a sibling, an old friend... even an old teacher.
The place can be anywhere and the time can be 20 years ago or 2 days ago...
The result is the same..  You are taken somewhere else entirely and experiencing something surreal.

Every time I hear Shai's "If I Ever Fall In Love..." I think of being 12 and swearing I knew exactly what love was and how it felt to be immersed in it... Little did I know I had noooo idea about anything even remotely related to that feeling...

Or "Heal the World" by the King of Pop and my 6th grade graduation...and how many times we had to practice the song to make sure we got it exactly right...

Or Edgar Joel's "Hasta El Sol de Hoy" and the crazy summer I spent with my older sister and brother... and how badly we got on each others nerves... 


The thing is that every single time you hear the song you go off into a certain time... a certain place... where you can actually see, hear and feel that person...
Experience whatever it is you've experienced with them before... 

It's like being teleported to another time or place...
Everything is so vivid... so real.

And at some point you stop listening to the song because you are experiencing it.

I find it interesting how powerful music is.
How a song can trigger certain memories and feelings......
How something as simple as singing along can make you smile, tear up, laugh...

What song moves you....???
