This happens to me often, probably because I love music so much.
I love how music can change your mood or help you feel any emotion more fully.
I love how music often transplants me to a different place and time. Sometimes it is an event in my life that I had forgotten about. Other times it is to a place I have never been but dream about going.
I love to think that my life has a movie soundtrack and that at any given moment there is a song that sums up the emotions and energy of whatever is being experienced, right THEN!
Here's a song that came to my mind, literally out of nowhere, about two weeks ago. It has been on my mind at least once a day since then and I eventually found it on YouTube and added it to my "favorites" just so I could hear it any time I want! For anyone who remembers this song, kudos to you!
I am not sure why this song popped into my memory, but I am very glad that it did because I still love the tune. It makes me think about when I worked at McDonald's on 10th street in Greeley, Colorado during and after I graduated high school. I drove "the Babemobile" which was a 1979 Toyota Corolla Hatchback ... until it became a "topless" car when my dad and I cut the top off of her one crazy Saturday! I remember driving to and from work in that car (spray painted black with white pinstripes) and hearing this song on the radio. I'd turn it up as loud as I could and drive around thinking about whatever girl I happened to have a crush on that week. I never saw the movie that this was written for (Super Mario Brothers) but the song was popular enough that I heard it hundreds of times in those early 90s. I hope you like it!
