Is there a song that reminds you of something in your past and when you hear it makes you feel like you did back then?

I just heard a song that I used to listen to and think about my crush back in the 7th grade! When I hear it now 10 years later I feel like I'm still "in love" with him and it makes my heart beat fast like it did back then! lol am I just weird or do other people do this too?

  • Sure, all the time! The bad part is some songs remind you of the ones that broke your heart too!

  • Yes, I listen to certain songs that remind me of my husband. I'm an 80s girl, so those remeind me of high school.

  • Certainly!! Next to our sense of smell, the sense of sound (especially music) is the strongest draw on our memories. When I hear special songs, I can remember the first time I heard them or who I was with when it was playing, or what event I was attending when it was performed, etc... "Those were the days...." hmm?

  • I totally understand. I love music and use it as a way to remember things that have happened in my life. I think it is natural to feel this way and that it is good for you.

    I still can't listen to certain songs without thinking of my "EX" and we have not been together for over 11 years. I am married with 3 wonderful children and if I am driving and her a certain song, I can still see my "EX" and what we were doing when we used to listen to it.

  • Yeah, and for the most part I wanna forget my past. So it usually sucks when I hear them
