There’s an oldies station, and I catch a half hour coming home from the dojo two or three times a week. There are just certain songs that I don’t ever need to hear again. Jeremiah Was a Bullfrog will cause my hand to break the sound barrier getting to the buttons. Most 80s and 90s pop music will get me hunting for a different station. Some of it was terrible when it was recorded, some of it didn’t age well, and the rest was played to death.
There are other songs that make me reach over and turn up the volume. We all have them, songs that remind us of youth, of driving too fast on a country road, of being alone with that first true love, going to a concert with a couple of friends. The time slipped away, but the music brings it back for a few minutes. This is one of those songs for me. I’d be interested in yours.
Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and cannot remain silent.
