I was driving home from work the other night when a song came through my shuffle. I was immediately taken back to 1990. I was sitting in my parents' living room, the burnt orange sheers casting a glow over me. I was on the couch, doing word searches. No more cares in my mind. No more worries of adult life. I was thirteen again, rockin out to a favorite tune.
And let me tell you, I LOVED this song. I found a word search book in my old closest a couple of years ago. It was covered with "Jon Bon Jovi" and "Blaze of Glory is the best song ever!" As I drove, I felt that same exhilaration of the song. Silly as that may be.
But with the final cord, the moment ended and I was back in 2011. Back driving down the express way, going home after working way too long of a day.
What song takes you back every time?
