My first attempt at something like this so it should be an interesting ride.

Music often has the ability to remind us of old memories. In your entry today, be inspired by a specific piece of music or a musical instrument. What feelings/emotions does the music or instrument stir in you? Share a specific memory your chosen song or instrument reminds you of.

Choose just one piece of music? That’s like asking a parent who is their favourite child!

I think music memories for me break down into three different categories. There are a ton of songs that remind me of my family members. I can’t hear Nat King Cole without thinking of my dad. My grandad loved Jim Reeves but I don’t hear too many of those songs on the local classic rock channel!

My kids sitting in the back of the car singing along to the currant pop song. They loved Last Christmas by Wham and Real Gone Kid by Deacon Blue. I can hear them singing now.

Another category would be sporting memories inspired by certain songs. Eighties, English pop brings back loads of football memories for me. Gives me shivers down my back just thinking about them.

Teenage years is probably my favourite category. You were going to be young forever and never complain about the music that the kids are listening to these days! I did stop myself once from shouting to my kids in their bedrooms to lower the music. That was a close one.
