There will always be songs that remind of times gone by, of certain people.  But what are the songs in your life that remind you of yourself for some reason?  For me, there are such songs.  It is not necessarily their words (but sometimes, yes)… they are like photographs of a you who once was.  For me, Neil Young’s Down By the River, is one of those songs that reminds me of me, or more especially, who I was in my 30’s.  My song for myself.  Same goes for Otis Redding’s Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay…. Reminds me of a very young me, who was very taken by the words to that song when it came out, and identified with it for whatever reason.
What would be my song for today, for who I’ve become, rather than who I was?  I don’t have a song for today.  Well, maybe I do… I like that song Brave, by some woman who’s name I simply cannot remember.  Yea, that’s my today song.

  1. i think it is wonderful that you have songs that take you back to parts of my life
    i suppose i have songs that do that, but maybe not songs that remind me of myself as much as the era
