Only 3 more days left in the 31 day blog challenge. Today is day 29, and it brings us to meaningful songs.
Kenny Chesney’s song I Go Back says this:
We all have a song that’s somehow stamped our lives, takes us to another place and time.
This is so true. There are songs that are meaningful to each of us. These songs trigger a memory, maybe of someone or something…fun times…maybe even painful memories. I’m sure you can name a song or two that takes you back anytime you hear it. I have a few, but one stands out for me.
Simple Man by Lynyrd Skynyrd.
I’ve always liked the song and the band. However, when I hear it now it is more meaningful to me. I’ve listened to it for years, but in 2009 it became one of those songs. You see, my friend Ricky passed away in 2009. He was more than a friend…he was like a brother. His death was sudden and very difficult for me and many others. Simple Man was played at Ricky’s funeral, and it was at that moment I knew I would never listen to the song in the same way again. Now, when I hear it, my mind automatically goes to memories of my friend.
There are others, but this is the one I wanted to share. It is more meaningful than any other.
What songs are meaningful to you? I would love to hear.
