A post from another blog (Write me a book, John!) got me thinking of how important music has been in my life. I’ve been going through my music collection downloading some of it to my new computer. It’s funny to look back at what I’ve collected over the years, it’s very much like a scrapbook, you can remember what was going on in your life when you downloaded that song. Remember napster? Those were the good old days.
One of the most prolific bands in my music library has always been Matchbox Twenty. I got to see Matchbox Twenty and Goo Goo Dolls at Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC) last summer and it was the best concert I’ve ever been. It was all ages, though it was those of us in our late to mid twenties who were obviously the die hard fans. It was funny to see the teens and tweens whip out their iPhones to look up lyrics to songs that were popular before they were even born. It really made me better appreciate the staying power of the two bands and made me feel a little old.
What about you? What music will you always carry with you? What’s your favorite music memory?
