The Power of Song

Have you ever been listening to the radio or your iPod when you hear it? The song that takes you back in time. Maybe it reminds you of a person or an event. Whatever it is, the song always takes you there when you hear it.

Kenney Chesney has a song about that very thing. His song, I Go Back, is all about the power of a song. “We all have a song that’s somehow stamped our lives…takes us to another place in time.”

I have a passion for music, so there are many songs I could list here that take me back. One is Simple Man by Lynyrd Skynyrd. Every time I hear it I am reminded of a good friend who passed away far too soon. I love how music has the power to trigger memories and take you back in time. No wonder I’m always listening to something.

What song takes you back? Do you have that one song that, each time you hear it, brings back memories and carries you back to another place in time?
