So the first theme is for Thursdays, cause today is Thursday, and it's SONGS THAT TAKE YOU BACK! You know what I mean those songs that immediately suck you right back to a particular time and place. They bring back more than just emotion they bring back images, and smells and put you right back in that moment. You can hear mine, and even get the inside scoop on why these songs matter to me by adding me as a Twitter friend and then listening and following the Tweets! I will endeavore to save all the tweets and post them at the end of the day. Should be fun, but it'll be GREAT if we get YOUR participation. email me requests and the story behind them and I'll share them with everyone ala Casey Kasem.
UPDATE:So here are the Tweets from Twitter. These are only MY memories tied to the songs indicated. I revised them cause sometimes 140 characters just isn't enough....these are in reverse order and do not represent every song played. Thanks to those who joined me.
