As I was driving this morning, Sophie B. Hawkins' "As I Lay Me Down to Sleep" came on the radio. Automatically, I could picture the "Party of Five" episode where Julia went to a Sophie B. Hawkins concert and Sophie was singing this song. I remember because after this episode I loved it so much I had to run out and buy the CD - still a favorite, but now very scratched up.
I think there a lot of songs out there that can be associated with a tv show...well at least for me. Particularly because I have always been a fan of the teenage drama shows (yes, and still am - I can't grow up - Gossip Girl is my current favorite!). A lot of these shows feature bands in one way or another to suck their target audience in (and I'm a prime example of it working). Party of Five had it's characters going to see concerts. One Tree Hill has a nightclub (although, I'm not into the current teenage music so I'm lost on any favorites there).
Of course, Counting Crows "Omaha", "Round Here", or "Mrs. Jones" always bring me back to the summer of '92. My first kiss in Ocean City, NJ. (I actually DO have a picture of the "morning after", but my couch is currently blocking my picture albums to make room for the Christmas tree. That CD was one of my first, and I played it over and over that week while we were on vacation in Ocean City.
I would love to read about your top 5 memory making songs!!!! Leave me a comment or better yet, blog about it. But, don't forget to leave me a comment and tell me your playing along. I'll add a link to your blog below if you want to join in!!!
