I am always amazed at how a song has the ability to take me directly to a particular place, time and situation. Lyrics will transplant me back to a moment in time. Suddenly, I’m 15 and in a church van or 17 with the boy of that time or 25 and looking toward the next chapter in life. Other times, a song will just engulf me in the moment…everything else fades away…its just me and the song. There are only a handful of songs that do that to me. One of them is “Name” by Goo Goo Dolls. If you asked me why it has such a strong connection to me, I wouldn’t be able to answer you. All I know if that it connects to my soul in such a deep way.
Your turn! Tell me your favorite memory connected with a song or what song connects to your soul.
