Go Back In Time With Delilah! — Delilah’s Reflections
Music has a way of making a mark on many people, sometimes in more ways than one.
A song can bring back specific feelings, be a reminder of a particular memory, and so on.
The right song at the right time can take you back in time to a special memory of your first kiss, to the smile of your first true love, to a carefree summer as a youth...and so on. The memories are as endless as the songs throughout the generations, it seems. These are just a few of the hundreds of comments that came in over Facebook when I asked about that one song that takes listeners back...
"Faithfully" by Journey takes me back to when I was 13 and met my first love! Melissa
"Jack and Diane" takes me back to when my husband of 26 years and I started dating when I was in 9th grade....we were inseparable...still are. Leona
Barry Manilow's "I Made It Through The Rain" after I finished my chemo. Judy
"Somewhere Out There" - my late husband and I courted by mail, phone and tapes long distance for months and the words of this song were so appropriate. They are still appropriate now that he's in Heaven. Carolyn
Peter Frampton, "Baby I Love Your Way" reminds me of summertime. Cathy
Dancing to "Sixteen Candles" at the Satellite Lounge in NJ with a certain someone in 1976. I will never forget that. Carol
"Always Something There To Remind Me" reminds me of my first love that I let get away. Diane
