Songs such as 'I'm not in Love'(10CC) and Beach Baby(First Class) always bring back hot summer days on Oddicombe beach in Devon where I used to live as a teenager. I can even feel the heat of the sun as a crowd of us used to sit at the far end of the beach away from the holiday makers. Very happy memories
Then there's ' In the living years' (Mike and the Mechanics)which tells the story of my relationship with my Father almost as though it was written for me including having a baby a short while after he died.
It always makes me remember him and usually brings a tear even after all these years.
Today it is 3 years since my lovely old Mum left me, 28 years after Dad, and when I eventually turned on the radio this morning the first song I heard was 'In the living years'.
Is that what they call Karma or Ironic ?
Anyway whatever it is
This is to remember them.
