I don't know about you, but some songs spark of an instant memory for me, probably because they were playing at the time, for instance,
Chris de Burgh's, Lady in Red, as soon as I hear the opening track my mind races back to a beautiful summer's evening when I was driving home from the office in Epsom along the Leatherhead by-pass. The trees had the wonderful canopy of new leaf in the soft green of spring time. The shadows from the trees slipped across the road as the sun filtered through the new foliage.
Gareth Gates, Anyone of Us (Stupid Mistake) sends me back to driving through Voorschoten, the long flat roads surrounded by miles of flat fields, on my way back to our home in Leiden having had cake, coffee and plenty of chatting with my dear friend, Cheryl at the Vroom & Dreesmann in Leideshendam.
Do you have a song, a piece of music that sends you back to a time, place or event and if so, please share it with us....just to remind me I'm not completely gaga!
