Music binds us together in a very weird and winding way. It reveals our culture and our lifes. It defines us and tell a story about us that no one could understand, unless put into a song. I like when I here a song and I can close my eyes and escape.

I was listenning to XM today on the eighties channel and I was suprised to have so many songs rekindle so many old memories. You may, or may not know, I love music of almost any kind. Music can do so many things to you, sometimes only after hearing one note. Like the fist couple bars of "Start Me Up" by The Rolling Stones or the horns at the beginning of "Brass Monkey" by Beastie Boys. It's the feeling you get when you hear that song that reminds you of your first car or that first kiss.

There is something romantic about knowing no matter where you are, or what your doing, you can hear an old song and it can time warp you to a place you wish you could go back to. Here are a few songs that do that for me, I know they are pretty main stream but what can I say I am not a artsy fartsy kind of guy....

(Not in any order)

1. "Livin' on a prayer" by Bon Jovi
2. "Sympathy for the Devil" by The Rolling Stones
3. "Black" by Pearl Jam
4. "Eye Of The Tiger" by Survivor
5. "New York State of Mind" by Billy Joel
6. "Purple Rain" by Prince
7 "Sweet Caroline" by Neil Diamond (Eightfeet Edition)
8. "Running Down a Dream" by Tom Petty
9. "The Joker" by Steve Miller
10. "Open Arms" by Journey

What are yours?????
