Yesterday, after reading Glen’s current post http://taureandreams.wordpress.com/ about food that reminds him of places and things, I thought about how music evokes memories for me. Music has always been a significant factor in my life and my taste in music is eclectic. I adore the hot Latin rhythms of salsa as much as the classical works of Beethoven. I have spent many long nights studying with Neil Young playing in the background and have been known to break into spontaneous dance when I hear The Rolling Stones and Mr Mick Jagger belt out Satisfaction( something that I do try to keep under control ha ha).
Over the years I have found solace in the sensual lyrics and sounds of Leonard Cohen(who just keeps on getting better) and harked back to my wild youthful days listening to anything from The Band, Bob Seger, Joe Cocker, The Beatles to Lynyrd Skynrd.Yes, even though I indulged from time to time in mind altering substances, I do remember!
