The BlogNinjas are back for 2008. After pigging out and holiday carousing we had to hit the dojo for some serious training but now we’re ready to carry on kicking ass like only we can. If you’re not a Blog Ninja yet why not make it your New Year’s resolution? Sign up here for your complimentary shuriken. Uniform not provided.
Here’s topic #6:
What song transports you through space and time, and where do you go?
The idea here is that we’re all getting older, and there’s that tune that was playing that one time, and now when it comes on the radio you immediately are back in that place. It’s nearly impossible for me to pick just one song. I am so into music that I have a soundtrack for every part of my life. It would run pages. I usually don’t remember where I am when I first hear a song, but I can be transported through my memory fairly easily.
Collective Soul = the summer my brother and I lounged in the basement playing cards.
Massive Attack = the first summer I spent away from home.
Pink Floyd = Dad showing me “The Wall”.
Counting Crows = high school.
Illinois = SXSW 07.
Pete Yorn = meeting my husband.
Most recently, “Hands Open” by Snow Patrol was playing from my mp3s when I finished my first book. To keep the tradition, I played it as I crossed the finish line with my second too. No matter what happens, whenever that song pops up, I will be filled with a great sense of accomplishment and pride. Music is in our lives to associate with experience. I have a great soundtrack.
