Music From the Past

Is there a song that you hear and it reminds you of something from your past that makes you cringe?  Like, you were doing something while that song was playing and that memory you’ve been trying to suppress comes back when you hear it years later, haunting you of your humiliation?

It happens to me all the time.  All. The. Time.

One of those songs happens to be “Halo” by Beyoncé, which I wrote about and you can read here.  But others include “Bleeding Love” by Leona Lewis, and “Sexy and I Know It” by LMFAO.  I’m sure there are more, but I guess I’m still suppressing them…

But then I was thinking about this the other day, thinking about how I deleted the aforementioned songs from my computer and iPod (and from my life) because I didn’t want to remember those rather embarrassing and perhaps heartbreaking memories, but then I thought:

Don’t run from your past.  You can’t.  Accept what happen and be happy at least something happen.  Those songs are just too good to ignore forever; use them to create new, happier memories.
