Looking back in time with music

Some of you know that I am partial to songs that tell stories. Some are very poignant and can make your heart long for a memory, or make you feel like you had the experience, especially if there is a good back story and even a music video to go with it.

There are times when I’ll hear a song somewhere and can’t get it out of my head; that happened recently. In fact, this morning I woke up with “Your Wildest Dreams” still echoing in my mind after several days of haunting me, so I grabbed my phone and Googled it, determined to play whatever video came up just to make it stop nagging me.

There are usually multiple videos on YouTube from which to choose and I didn’t want to have to pick one just to hear the song. Interestingly, video from the web search was the original music video! I didn’t even know it existed, and it was good enough that it had won awards. Then, right after I heard the first song, they played another (“I Know You’re Out There Somewhere”) that was its actual sequel! So I have created a 2″story-song” playlist for the two.

    Wow, does that ever bring back memories. Forty-plus years ago I had the biggest crush ever on Justin Hayward…
