That Song in Your Head

One of the play lists on my ipod is called "Andy's songs". It's a compilation of songs he downloaded to my computer over the years. Everything from Stevie Ray Vaughn to David Allan Coe to Social Distortion. I have to be in a certain mood to listen to it.

Songs define the events of our lives. In 1977, I was newly married and pregnant (don't do the math..ha). We had put our few belongings in a VW Beetle and moved from Michigan to Texas. And I started college. Whew...what a year! The song that played constantly from when we hit the Texas state line and throughout that first summer was this:

I cannot hear "You Picked a Fine Time to Leave Me Lucille" without being transported back to that year. Surprisingly, that song is still played a lot.

I would love to hear what song brings back a period in your life every time you hear it?
