Who else remembers their favorite song from their childhood? I’m sure when you think back to it, tons of memories come flooding back to you, and start to fill you with the joy of feeling young again. But everyone has a different emotional or physical connection to each and every song, that no one else will be able to understand, and I think that’s what makes music so special. So take a listen to a few of these, and see if anything comes back to you.
“HeadStrong” I picked this as my first choice because it was my go to song before every lacrosse game I went to. It always gave me that extra edge I needed before I walked into my games, and since I was an attack-man — the guy who usually shot the ball- I was also the one who was beat up by the defenders, and it helped block a lot of that stuff out until I actually got into the swing of the game and nothing else mattered. This is the one line that I always had play in my head during the game,
Back off I’ll take you on
Headstrong to take on anyone
O-Zone “Dragstea Din Tie” For my second song, I had to go with the one that everyone probably played over and over again until they started to go a little crazy. This song was used in Gary Brolsma vlog and it hit 700,000,000 views, the second most viral video in the world.
Vrei sa pleci dar nu ma, nu ma iei,
Nu ma, nu ma iei, nu ma, nu ma, nu ma iei.
I decided to finish with Blink 182’s “Adams Song” because Blink 182 was one of, and still actually is my favorite band growing up, and this was the first song I learned to play on the guitar, so it had even more of a special place in my heart. I would listen to this song over and over again while doing homework or riding home on the bus from school, and it always brings back memories from when I was younger.
I never conquered, rarely came
16 just held such better days
I decided on that part of the lyric since it goes back to when we were younger, and still were able to fully have that carefree attitude that it’s harder to have now, since we have careers, and the rest of our lives right around the corner.
