The Soundtrack of My Life

Did you ever picture your life as a movie, I do from time to time, and inevitably I find music that seems to fit perfectly. Driving, Working, Playing, Sleeping, Fooling Around, Running, and even just reading a book in my living room has a song or style of music assocaited with it in my mind. I have an Ipod that Jeeves gave me when I graduated from college with my Master's degree. It has my music, the soundtrack to my life. 

So many songs bring forth unbidden memories within seconds of hearing the first few notes. I can get lost in music, I need it like some poeple need chocolate, and I thought since it's so important to me I would share some of my favorites with you.
Each song listed below is linked and will take you to a you tube video, keep in mind, calling it high school doesn't mean that's when it came out, it means that's when it touched me.

I totally agree music can bring back memories. There are songs I hear and associate with times in my life, places I have been, and people. :-)

:) Thanks for sharing your memories through music! My boyfriend and I love discussing songs we listened to growing up. It's interesting to see what childhood memories or memories in general get evoked when certain songs go on the radio. There's a radio show on Sunday that does oldies from the 90s.
