I listen to my iPod quite a bit when I am doing things around the house but it is typically whatever I am currently listening to. Not counting a few random Pandora visits I rarely listen to The Get Up Kids anymore. I packed it away, along with my "Boys Lie" t-shirt, pink suede converse and old journals. So the song came on and, just like that, I was 20. I wasn't in my kitchen making breakfast and packing lunches. I was with my best friends, driving in my Jeep. Singing with my cousins. Doing all of the things that I did as this song and album served as a soundtrack for, gosh, nearly 2 years.
It's not that I am not happy in the present, but it really was nice to hear a song and be immediately transported, if only in my thoughts, to a different time.
What song/album has this effect on you? Please share, I really would love to hear :)
