We all have those songs that take us back...way back. My teen years were spent in the 90's and these are the songs that take me back to the gold old days:
Sohpie B. Hawkins - Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover
Wow, this song! My best friend and I wrote novels in high school and we even wrote some short stories about our crushes. This song is dedicated to that crush ( a certain snare drummer) and that story. I love this song!
Goo Goo Dolls - Iris
My high school sweetheart wrote the lyrics to this song in a note for me. It was our song from then on. Makes me smile every time I hear it. We might not have ended up together in the end, but we sure are great friends now.
Dave Mathews Band - Crash Into Me
This song has all those summer band camps written all over it! It takes me back to long hot marching band practices, goofing off, crushes and a whole lot of fun. I miss those people and those days!
Smashing Pumpkins - Tonight, Tonight
This song was always blasting out of our car speakers after football games. I can still smell the popcorn from our stadium!
Alison Krauss - When You Say Nothing At All
Ode to my best friend! Not only did she sing this song with her folk band, but it was our song. We were two misfits that found one another and never let go. You know who you are girl and I love you so very much!
Spice Girls - WANNABE
Again, my best friend and I were obsessed with the Spice Girls! We even dressed up like them and drug our then boyfriends kicking and screaming to the movies to watch their movie. Those poor boys.
Do you have certain songs that take you back? If so, what are they? I love these songs and so many more, but these are the ones that I can't live without!
