“Every time I hear that song, I go back” – Kenny Chesney, I Go Back

I find it amazing how listening to certain cds/songs can call to mind very detailed memories. It just hit me with Pet Sounds reminding me of the ’05 Summer when I got a truck with a CD player and that CD stayed in there for weeks. Start Static always reminds me of Freshman year. I guess the final one is Bridges and Breakdowns, which takes me back to a month during senior year when I did very little work and played entirely too many sudokus, often listening to that CD. It’s just amazing how powerful the experience is. A couple weekends ago Brett mentioned a similar thing. What songs/cds do you strongly associate with a time and place? (You can pretend that when I ask a question, people respond to me via email because they don’t like sharing.)
