Ipod update.....

As I was updating my ipod today, I started looking at the songs I was importing from my cd collection and found some that meant the most for me or almost always takes me back to a different time in my life.  I always am happy to revisit the different times because I think that without even one of those steps in my life I wouldn't be who I am today,  regardless of whether that step was a good one or a sad one.  (Wow pretty philosophical for 8:45 a.m.)  
Anyways... here are some of the songs that have added to my life. 
  • Lollipop- Chordettes: singing with my mom in the motorhome. 
  • Annie's Song- John Denver: singing it to Kaity to get her to sleep in Montana.
  • I Will Survive- Gloria Gaynor: High School
  • Grease Mega-mix: Going to the Galaxy Diner to eat with Molly Jae and watching the waiters dance to it. 
  • PeaceTrain- Cat Stevens: After learning about the Titanic when I was little, I couldn't sleep because I felt bad for all those that died. My mom put this record on to get me to sleep. 
  • What's the Frequency Kenneth- REM: Living with Amy in the little white house in Whitefish.
  • Forgot about Dre: Dr. Dre: Janalyn gave me that cd before I moved away. 
  • Because you loved me- Celine Dion: My old men from Coffee Break

  • Rub-a-dub- 311: Travis and JT at the 311 concert in Las Vegas
  • Wide Open Spaces- Dixie Chicks-  When I drove into the valley in Montana on my own for the first time, all by myself!
