I love music. I have it playing as I am getting ready for work in the morning, when I’m driving in the car, and usually on my laptop at work. It has the ability to speak to my soul – and transport me back to previous places and times.
The song Jesus Loves Me reminds me of Richvalley UMC where I grew up. The congregation sang it every Sunday as kids came forward for the children’s sermon.
Vertical Horizon’s song Everything I Want takes me back to my senior prom, dancing with my good-looking date and thinking, “You’re everything I want, you’re everything I need, you’re everything inside of you that you wish you could be, you say all the right things at exactly the right times, but you mean nothing to me and I don’t know why.”
Are there songs that take you back to previous times and places?
