My Life Soundtrack

Have you ever been driving in your car, a song comes on the radio, and then floods of memories start replaying in your mind? There are few songs that really bring me back to a certain time, but these definitely do. first a little disclaimer: The songs that remind me of my life doesn't mean that I was doing what the song entails. It was usually the song on the radio all the time, or we were all singing it together, or we all started talking about that song, etc. So don't flip out when you read some of these songs and think I'm some partying promiscuous girl..because I'm really not, I mean really not.

I updated my list, that one was too good not to include..
