i decided to invent a word.
it's a combination of music & nostalgia.
i've pretty much always known that music was such a big part of my memories... but i never coined a term for it. and i never gave it too much thought.
because i'm pregnant??
certain songs bring me back to my past. i know that's not unusual. my sis used to think my memory was crazy b/c of it (among other things) but, really, i know i'm not the only one who can say ........ oh that was 1983. it helps that the year ended in the grade i was in; thus 3rd grade
i vividly remember getting ready for school once when i heard "you dropped a bomb on me". i vividly remember singing "big ol' carolina" instead of steve miller's "jet airliner" also sang some other songs funny, or had memories tied to them.
however, i'm noticing now -more than ever- i crave old songs. (i'm even listening to the cheese station!!! the one where delilah comes on at night) i think it's b/c i'm having a littly soon. music is happy for me. and, boy, our littlebean will know some obscure music- especially for the peers!
i fully intend to buy some music from my old days- just so i can re-sing those songs to my baby. not b/c of any great or deep meaning. they weren't even necessarily my favorite; but i remember listening to the records over & over. i'm sure nobody here (all 2 of you) have ever heard of Music Machine or Bullfrogs & Butterflies but our kid will. for no reason other than that just brings me back!
i have been known to rip out "have patience" in my slow voice a time or 2. and i can't wait to remember the others!
