those songs || you know?

You know how sometimes you'll get really into a song and it'll be on repeat for a certain part of your life. And then slowly you start listening to other stuff and that song fades slowly away.  
Then one day you turn that song back on again because it's still one of your many favorites and immediately it brings you straight back to that certain time in your life, and you can even remember smells and feelings from that time. Oh man I love music. Those special songs that connect you to special or even insignificant times in your life. 
Close your eyes and that'll help you picture it to a point.

This one is my couple of weeks before Summer vacation song.
This song is my driving along the coast towards San Diego song.
This one is my look out the airplane window and feel overwhelmed song.
And this one is my miss my brothers like a lot song.

And sometimes when I hear a certain song, my heart gives a little jump and then I feel sort of queer.
Lately it's been Coldplay and Colbie Caillat. They're both making me homesick for West Nanjing Street (Shanghai). Weird huh!?

Love, me

p.s. Nine pictures for a header. Whatdoyathinkofthat!?


  1. The John Mayer song is really nice. I've been listening to it this summer too since Andrew and William play it in the car. I like how bands can make you lonely for places--I think it's a good loneliness.

  2. this is your best post so far. Maybe the best post on the entire internet (Bethys' picture of her dogs is giving you a run for your money) but I know EXACTLY what you're talking about. I could fill books with all the songs I have for different moments, seasons, weather, feelings, places...etc...It's good to know other people feel the same way (and a little sister of mine to boot.) Miss you annie!
