What song(s) takes you back to a special moment with your spouse?
We know that music carries memories, and as soon as a certain song starts to play, we can be transported right back to a specific time in our past.
What song will take you right back to a fun, deep, or intimate memory with your spouse? What was that special moment?
Example, I was watching The Voice and “A Natural Woman” came on, it immediately made me remember the time around dancing/striptease for my husband and the whole memory around that.
Candy Dulfer’s “Lily Was Here” always reminds me of lovemaking during the early years of our marriage as we would play it often then during those encounters.
“Forever and Ever, Amen” by Randy Travis as we listened to it often driving around in truck back in our teen dating years.
“Everything I Do” by Bryan Adams. Our first date was at a college dance at which the DJ played no slow songs. We wanted to slow dance so badly and were very disappointed. We ended up going up to Dh’s dorm room. He had the Bryan Adams CD and played that song. It was the only slow song he owned, lol. Best dance of my life, until we danced again to the same song at our wedding.
When we were dating, my DH once came to pick me up for a date (I think it might have been for a Valentine’s dance; he was dressed really nice) and he played “Sharp Dressed Man” and danced for me, in front of my parents, no less! I knew then he was willing to be silly for me and it melted my heart.
Once we were dancing to Alabama’s “Face to Face” and as the lyrics instructed, I obeyed. I ran my fingers through his hair. Then I softly kissed his lips. I snuggled a little closer when they said to ‘hold me close in your embrace’, but my face turned bright red and I stopped short when they said ‘love me face to face’! (When my best friend and I did a post mortem on the party later, I learned she had done the very same thing with her boyfriend.)
One Friday night we were on a date and DH had just bought Def Leppard’s “Pour Some Sugar On Me” on…CD? Can’t remember if they had been invented yet or not. Anyway, my church was having a 24 hr. prayer vigil that weekend and my mom and I were signed up for a shift that started at 11 or 12. He played that song over and over and over…and over ALL. NIGHT. LONG. before dropping me off at the church after our date. Ever try to pray when you have a hair band screaming a song about sex through your head on a non-stop loop? Beside your MOM?
There are dozens more; we love music and have lots of fun memories. Thanks, SC, for bringing them to the surface today! 🙂
“Speechless” by Dan & Shay! My husband is obsessed with this certain dress I have. He said the song makes him think of me in that dress. While on vacation, my husband really hoped that I packed it. I lied and told him no. While getting ready to go out for dinner, I managed to get the dress into the bathroom and got ready. He was knocking on the door and I started playing the song on my phone. I’m sure his wheels were turning when he heard it! On the chorus, I opened the door, standing there in the dress. Needless to say, he was Speechless!! That song always brings back the proud moment of surprising him in such a special way!!
Angel eyes by the Jeff Healy Band, we couldn’t dance at our wedding (the church we got married in didn’t allow it) but dh had that song played and we held hands during it. That’s the only sappy song but we have lots of songs that just remind me of dh and his sense of humor in general, Uncle Albert by the Beatles (he sings it to me in a silly way and I have a relative named Auntie Jen) The Final Countdown by Europe, he sings a silly version with altered lyrics to our kids. Loaded up and Truckin by Deezer. Poor Boy by Queen (or as my kids say “Poor Little Boy”) they all have funny stories or reasons why they remind me of him.
We have totally different taste in music but I’ve been exposed to many songs that I would probably never even have heard without knowing him and they all remind me of him in a fond way.
Every song from the Purple Rain soundtrack. We were dating but living 8 hours apart due to a college internship. He wrote me a letter every day and I would read it while listening to the cassette tape because it was the last movie we had seen together.
