@VickiBatman ~ Does Music and Memories go Hand in Hand?

~And I Love Her~

Music and memories go hand in hand. The other day, I clicked on an easy-listening iTunes playlist I'd created, and the Beatles' song, And I Love Her, came up.

Once upon a time, I was a young single chick and was intrigued by several guys. I went on a casual night out with a friend I had stirrings of feelings for. I think he did too, but was afraid to act on them.

So we went to a show, and afterwards, we drove around town with the windows down. I pushed my long hair out of my eyes and let the moment take me away. At the end of the evening, this song came on. He turned to me and sang the whole thing. I part of me wanted to believe this meant more than just singing a song. But I'll never know. He didn't kiss me good night or utter another word. He dropped me off and drove away.

Not long after, I met another who chased me until he caught me. He couldn't and can't sing well, but he tries. LOL

Obviously, this was a strong memory because I remember it blanket-blank years later. And hearing the song makes me wonder whatever happened to that boy and a bit wonders what might have been.

Do you have a song that holds special memories for you?

I will never again hear John Lennon's Imagine without remembering it being played the night of September 11, 2001. The world was reeling from what had happened and somehow, the words seemed right.

Okay, I have to confess something...I really don't like The Beatles. Never did.

"Cherish" is the song that takes me way back.

My first kiss at fifteen wasn't private at all. Friends, my little brother, and other neighbor kids were gathered in front of my house talking. Suddenly,The neighbor boy who lived across the street spontaneously bent down and kissed me...a lip lock!

We never had any interest in each other. They moved and we lost touch. I heard he went into the Air Force and this was during Viet Nam. I don't know what ever happened to him. That will forever be a mystery for me.

Ah, Susan: that would be a very poignant memory. thank you for sharing.

Hi, Phyllis: The song I remember is my favorite Beatles' one. I heard the Association sing "Cherish" live. Yeah! and Windy too.

Oh, I wondered what happened to that boy.

Melissa said...

Hm. Maybe the 'her' really was a(nother) her.

It's strange to look back over our lives and wonder what would have been if one little thing here or there had happened differently.

Music and memories do go together. I loved the song Cherish and there are several Beatle songs that take me back in time. But there are also James Taylor songs that take me back to the 70's. I didn't meet my husband until the 90's, but we say our song is I Got You Babe by Sonny and Cher.
