Songs, Memories, Nostalgia

Really in the home stretch of my little challenge here:

Day 29: Five songs that speak to you or bring back memories. Use Grooveshark to include

Ooooh, I really like this one. I tried to choose ones from the various chapters of my little life so far...and had to mention six:

Strawberry Wine by Deana Carter

Strawberry Wine by Deana Carter on Grooveshark
Middle school dances. I remember having some of my first slow dances to this sweet jam. So romantic and so epic. Then our moms picked us up from the middle school gym and we went home and giggled all night about boys. Middle school is so weird.

Rhiannon by Fleetwood Mac

Rhiannon by Fleetwood Mac on Grooveshark
High school. This reminds me so much of a specific friend of mine. We would jam out so hard to Fleetwood Mac and drive around the neighborhood with the windows down like we owned the place. Turns out we just had cars, that's it.

Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond

Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond on Grooveshark
College. Every frat house, every bar, every time. One specific ex-roommate of mine would always go particularly bananas for this track, but honestly we all were doing the same. The fist pumping. Oh, the fist pumping.

Umbrella by Rihanna

Umbrella - Rihanna & Jay-Z by Rihanna on Grooveshark
New York. The summer I interned up in the big city, this song was everywhere. It felt like every time we went out it was on repeat. I still hear it and think of eating Ramen in my crapy dorm room, getting fancied up and going to clubs like we belonged. It also reminds me a lot of my little booger of a partner in crime that summer.

Single Ladies by Beyonce

Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It) by Beyoncé on Grooveshark
Dallas. I danced the Single Ladies dance bi-weekly during my two years living up in The Big D. I'm not going to lie, I'm kind of good at it. I also went to alot of weddings around that time and really just owned those bouquet tosses that often feature this song.

Another Like You by Hayes Carll

Another Like You by Hayes Carll on Grooveshark
Austin and the Ginger. We'd only been dating a couple of weeks when he asked me to see Hayes Carll on New Years eve 2011/2012. Tons of friends ended up coming along and it was just a perfect and amazing night. Since then, we've seen him several other times and always crank up the Hayes on our way home at the end of party nights. Heart that Ginger.

Listening to these songs has been distraction city for me. I'll take it. :)

I'm doing an AMAZING GROUP GIVEAWAY with Brunch at Amber today. Go enter!
