Tuesday Topics: Five Memory Filled Songs

Since I have been recapping my wedding, I will stay away from the obvious songs that bring back memories of my wedding. I went with a mix of happy and sad memories today. 

Lights--Ellie Goulding

The night after this awful night I heard this song.
I also heard it after a lot of really hard nights in the ER.
I was scared to go out all alone sometimes in the dark of night away from the bright lights and ambulance lights with so much adrenaline running through my veins.

The Songs I Sang with my Mom

My mom knew how to blast songs in the car and we would just sing along! There were so many good ones that I remember! I could make a whole huge list!
American Pie, any Carole King, Without You (above), Rich Girl, ELO, pretty much any good 70's song!

Linkin Park's first album

I know our generation has become song obsessed in due to large part to the internet. People buy one song instead of a whole album. Linkin Park's first album had all the songs that got my pumped up to swim big races in the pool.

Songs with Kirk
My uncle and Godfather died way to early in life. I remember going and visiting him in Ohio and blasting the Dixie Chicks with the windows down! Such a happy memory.

I also remember when my cousin (his daughter) was little, he was worried about some of the music she was listening to. He asked me if I thought this song in particular was okay.

Dancing with Daddy
When I was little my dad and I would go to father daughter dances. Dad would put me on his shoes and we would sway to the music. I love dancing with my dad, which was one of the best parts about my wedding! One of the songs we would dance to when I was little was Neon Moon.

What songs speak to you and bring back the memories?
Link up below!!!

Life. Love.Lauren


  1. Brooks and Dunn was my very first concert! And I loved the Dixie Chicks. LOVED THEM! I almost don't want to read everyone else's choices because now I'm thinking about all kinds of different songs that I should've mentioned!

    (I'm still reading, though.)

  2. Dixie Chicks were the BEST!! Definitely remember singing to their songs at the top of my lungs on the drives from home to college back in the day!

  3. I used to dance on my daddy's feet, too :) And I love Brooks and Dunn!

  4. i knew there was a better version of that song "without you". a friend and i had been talking about this a couple of weeks ago. and i can't remember what brought on the conversation. but she'd said air supply performed that. and i'd said that they didn't write that, so i went looking for it. badfinger did. and it's awful.

    i think she and i'd been talking about how mariah and celine get credited for all these ballads, when others wrote them.

    anyway, i knew there was a better version. thanks for posting it. :]

  5. Thanks for this week's link up. It provided lots of entertainment and dancing for me and my daughter. Great songs!

  6. I have to admit I couldn't link up today because I am so bad when it comes to music. I never remember the names of songs or the artists. It is pathetic really! Love some of your choices!

  7. What great songs! I love how well songs can bring up memories! :-)

  8. Dixie Chicks and Fall out Boy....great choices!

  9. Aww Neon Moon...such a good country song! And you know I love Lights :)


Comments make my day!
Thanks for the love <3
