Scientists say smell is one of the most powerful memory triggers we have. While that may be true, music is, in my mind, every bit as powerful. We all have a song or an artist that takes us back, brings up old memories, and reminds us of where we've been. Bex has an attachment to the Beach Boys, for example. For me, it's Jimmy Buffett. Dad and Baby Brother are big into way old-school country. Mom likes the classic rock, and I love punk and hair metal/acid rock. But we all came together on Jimmy. And honestly, I'm not sure I know a single person who doesn't like his music, and get a little smile when one of his songs starts up.
Listen and smile, y'all.
