Ten Songs that Bring Back Memories (and why)

Tuesday, March 1st, 2005

1) “On Bended Knee” by Boyz II Men - In college, we always used to stand in a circle and sing this together. What a painful song.

2) “You Got Me Up” by Cajmere - this is MY song. When it comes on I own the dancefloor, baby!

3) “Que Sera Sera” - Me and my sisters were singing this song on karaoke, then my dad told me to let Fatima sing, implying that I sucked. I haven’t had confidence in my singing since then.

4) “Supersonic” by JJ Fad - We’d always play this song on the cafeteria jukebox in high school.

5) “When I Fall in Love” by Celine Dion - it was the first song that Dave and I ever danced to.

6) “1979″ by the Smashing Pumpkins - Drunk in college at Manny’s apartment, with the video camera hooked up to the TV and making weird music videos.

7) “On Top of the World” by the Carpenters - when I was little, my parents would sing this around the house and I’d feel so content.

8) “You Light Up My Life” by Debbie Boone - I was lost in the house once, and my parents found me by listening to me sing this song.

9) “Those Were the Times” by Miguel Reyes - Gets me all teary eyed for my old college days.

10) “Nothin’ But a Good Time” by Poison - Good times driving around with Melanie, Ken and Maui in high school.
