Sometimes, u hear a song and you stop in your tracks. 'That song, oh that song'. It probably has reminded you of something - either something you would rather not remember or something sweet, that u'd want to savour for the time being.
I have loads of songs like that. i heard one this morning & i have been in my secondary school since then! Casanova by Daniel Wilson (all those born between 1980 and 1985 should somehow know this song) it was the in thing of the time. "excuse me my lady, tell me what's your name, all i need is a girl like you spending all with me...................". this song took me back to JSS1 and reminded me of my school mother. She used to take me to their senior's hostel and MAKE me sing the whole entire song to her class mates and to sing it with all the swag of a musician o! if i dare frown my face while singing it or not move my body the way Daniel Wilson would, i am in hot okro soup!
Other songs that are my drivers down memory lane are 'African Queen' and 'Ole' by Tuface - takes me to 3rd year in university when i just started living on my own and i bought my 1st radio. I thought i had arrived o. I always played Tu face's album but these 2 songs stand out in my mind. Then there is 'Yori Yori' by Bracket - My traditional wedding ceremony. i danced and danced and danced (or rather i TRIED to dance and dance and dance cos i wouldnt really say i pull it off well. lol). N'abania by Flavour and Love is wicked by Brick & Lace now those remind me of a very good, interesting but troublesome friend and her boyfriend. wonder where she is now. They broke up and i havent heard from her since. she used to be so much fun to be with.
What songs drive YOU down memory lane and where do they take you to????
