I have so many songs that are tied to memories and specific events. And it's amazing how you can hear a song and it takes you back to a time in your life, with people who are long gone. It's like a time machine.
When I was a little girl, my friends and I always went to the skating rink (Every skating rink has the guy who was a great skater, had his own skates, and all the girls had a crush on him. Then you reach 15 or 16 and realize he's a weirdo who hangs out at the skating rink.)
BHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Oh my God! that is soo true.
Heart of Glass is still my favorite song!

Some of the songs on that cd you might know; others maybe not. "Summertime" by Mongo Jerry, "I Can See for Miles" by The Who, "Elusive Butterfly
", "Giant Step" and "Last Train to Clarksville" by The Monkees, "The Night Chicago Died," "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head", "On the Road Again
", Billy Don't Be a Hero
, several Bread songs, Seasons in the Sun
, The Partridge Family singing I Think I Love You.
Also "Playground in My Mind
" which I had to search for, because I had no idea what it was called. And Brand New Key
, which you younger folks might recognize from the cute commercial. (btw, I had that exact pair of skates growing up). "Me and You and a Dog Named Boo
A trip down memory lane for sure.
Season in the Sun used to elicit gails of laughter whenever my sister and I would get together with our two cousins. The four of us girls were about the same age. A much younger me bought the 45 when it first released. I was so excited. While visiting our grandparents for the weekend at their house on the lake...I swear we drove the adults crazy. We played it over and over on the stereo. We sang it at the top of our lungs while floating on the water or sitting on the pier. On the way home, I placed my prized 45 in on the back window ledge of the car. All the windows were open. We hit the main road. Picked up speed. And Seasons in the Sun went flying out the window. I was hysterical!!!!!!! My father had to turn around. My aunt , uncle and cousins were in the car behind us and also made the u-turn. It must of been a sight to see for anyone passing by. Me sitting on the side of the road, clutching the broking pieces of a record , SOBBING! as if it were the end of the world. My sister and cousins doing their best to console me. hahahahaha.............................And now? It brings tears. My dearest cousin committed suicide a few months ago.
All these songs ...a rollar coaster of emotions. Truly bittersweet.

We can probably get accurate ages for Boarders based on who recognizes those song
I think we may have been the first Tiger Beat generation. In pretend games, I was "married" to Bobby Sherman because as the youngest girl he was the only heartthrob left, Donny Osmond and David Cassidy were already taken. I got tired of my "real" elder sister telling me that I could be married to the "pretend Donny or pretend David".
You know Donny was singing Sweet and Innocent to me!!!!!!!!!!!!
What about Tony
And theBay City Rollers!
