Wow! It’s Wednesday! Time Machine Songs

So the other day I was in the shower, and “Hypnotize” by Notorious B.I.G. came on. It was almost like I heard a time machine sound effect, because the next thing I knew, I was a college student again, attending a BSA party at Smith, riding in the passenger seat of my best friend’s car as we sang along with the chorus– this was the spring break after both he and my mother died. I could see my own hands unwrapping the double CD and playing that track first before I would listen to anything else on the album.

I could see it all so clearly, and I would have been surprised, except that’s what happens every single time I hear “Hypnotize” on the radio. If that song comes on, I am immediately transported back to 1997. It’s the equivalent of releasing a memory bomb inside my brain.

Do you have any songs like that? Songs that bring on a rush of memories from a certain year every time they come on the radio? Sound off in the comments!
