Music Memories: Something There To Remind Me… SADE

Sade – Smooth Operator

When Smooth Operator came out, I listened to it endlessly… It reminded me of a cad or two I’d met over the years… You know, the type that promised everything and delivered nothing… Need I say more? Enjoy the music. Reflect on your experiences and share them below… Come back later for more.

Music Memories: Something There To Remind Me… PHIL COLLINS

Phil Collins – In The Air Tonight (Official Video)

This sound was my anthem for a long while… filled with promise and hope for something grand and passionate… heck, even just a magical night of song and dance… Always the best.  More Later!

This post was inspired by a prompt from WP Daily Prompt: Always Something There to Remind Me

    Music is very motivational to me & I almost always have music on. Whether it is in the car, on in the kitchen while I cook, or I have my ipod on while I workout.

    Music has always been a big part of my life. I’d say 90 % of my day has music involved somehow. It keeps me going!

    I don’t get as much music in my life as i need these days 🙁

    Many songs remind me of significant events throughout my life. It certainly is a big part of my life.

    Certain songs will bring you back to a different time and place, hopefully they’re usually good ones.

    I love music. It truly heals my soul. Thanks!!

    I remember listening to these same tunes over and over. They were good songs.

    Music definitely soothes you and can affect your mood. I like listening to old favorites and reliving memories in my mind on a rough day. It makes me feel more alive and happy.

    Music definitely brings back memories whenever I hear certain songs I’m taken back to the time I was int he hospital.

    “Desert Moon” sung by Dennis Deyoung still reminds to be one of my favorites. It reminds me of the time when I still on the threshold of life raring to make it make it on my own.

    “Those summer nights when we were young.We bragged of things; we’d never done. We were dreamers …”

    Oh and I love Sade’s Smooth Operator too.

    I love Sade.. brings back so many memories.

    I go through cycles with music. Sometimes it is a big part of my life and sometimes not. Usually when I am working out it becomes a huge part.

  15. 03/03/2014 12:50 pm

    I hadn’t made an effort to listen to music regularly for awhile and I was feeling really down and depressed but then I began listening to music again and my spirits lifted instantly! I love looking back on all the songs I listened to as a kid, teen and an adult.

  16. 03/03/2014 12:51 pm

    I have always loved the song, Always Something There To Remind Me. i used to listen to music all the time. It seems the older I get, the more I want peace and quiet.

  17. 03/03/2014 12:58 pm

    Journey songs always make me think of high school and I guess it’s because they played them everywhere I was!

  18. 03/03/2014 1:17 pm

    Right now, I’m listening to a variety of genres. I have several favorite artists – and thanks to the iPod, I can make a playlist with everyone on it!

  19. 03/03/2014 2:14 pm

    i love all kinds of music my husband calls my play list manic. lol I have gotten out of listening to music all the time usually I enjoy the silence when hubby and kids are at school.

    Music does trigger a lot of things in us – memories, emotions.. and sometimes, just listening to it makes us feel better.

  21. 03/03/2014 2:39 pm

    I like that! Music has always been a huge part of my life, and I am making sure the kids get to hear it everyday. It can give you hope, and peace, courage. Everything you need

  22. 03/03/2014 2:42 pm

    My husband is a huge Sade fan, and I used to LOVE Phil Collins’ music. I still get happy when I hear a song of his that I loved when I was in school. 🙂

  23. 03/03/2014 3:30 pm

    I love music when I am in the mood to hear it. Otherwise, it can be distracting

  24. 03/03/2014 3:40 pm

    I heard someone say that music is the language of your emotions. I just loved that quote. And it’s so true. When you don’t have words to express yourself; often times there is a great song that can do it for you.

  25. 03/03/2014 4:49 pm

    I love Phil Collins. In the Air Tonight and that song he sings for Tarzan are both classics, lol.

    I was pretty young when those songs came out so they weren’t really on my play list. It’s great though how a song brings back so many memories!

  27. 03/03/2014 5:45 pm

    It’s amazing the emotions you can bring to the surface just by listening to certain pieces of music. x

  28. 03/03/2014 6:33 pm

    I love listening to music! It’s such a great way to make you feel something and remind you of certain periods of your life. My first cassette tape was Phil Collins!

  29. 03/03/2014 6:51 pm

    Beautiful thoughts! I LOVE music. It’s such a huge part of my life – I can’t imagine being without it!

    Music is definitely food for the soul. It can make or break an event or a person’s day.

    Music really does a lot i love when a song will remind me of something from the past.Great choices on your tracks especially Phil Collins.

  33. 04/03/2014 4:35 am

    Nothing soothes me more than music! I love all genres too! I’m not sure I’ve heard of Sade before, I think maybe my Grandma likes her, lol. I love that Bob Marley quote though, one of my favs! 🙂

  34. 04/03/2014 5:10 am

    Music is so important to me! Great choices and I absolutely love Phil Collins. He puts me in a great mood!

    Music is a very large part of my family’s life. My husband sings and plays a few instruments and I have music on in the house 24/7.

    Music is important. I just listen in the car, but need to bring in more music into the home too.

  37. 04/03/2014 12:19 pm

    Music is a huge part of my daily life! When I find a song that I just really connect with, I play it over and over again until I have the whole thing memorized lol.

    I remember these songs, what a memory! Music is awesome like that, transporting you to different places in your mind. 🙂

  39. 04/03/2014 2:28 pm

    I remember when I saw smooth operator for the first time, I did not like the song at all. I think I was more jealous of Sade because she looked so beautiful in that video.

  40. 04/03/2014 6:07 pm

    I love that Phil Collins song! It’s one of my favorites!

    I love listening to music that is very relaxing and meaningful. Some songs fit my situation in life and some lyrics fits me and bring back memories.

  42. 04/03/2014 8:27 pm

    Music has such a powerful way to bring back memories. Sometimes memories you want to forget. I have a few song that I once loved but not don’t listen to because they bring back memories that makes me sad.

  43. 04/03/2014 10:14 pm

    Wow…on first glance I thought it was a photo of Jennifer Lopez. Sade looks great in that picture!

  44. 05/03/2014 7:12 pm

    Thanks for the music post! I have some that just ‘take me back’ and I LOVE them!!
