Vinyl Memories -#FlashbackFriday

Old songs take me back in time. Here’s one of my favorites:

The Rolling Stones – Paint it Black

It reminds me of my thirteenth summer, my first dance, swimming off the dock in Lake Simcoe (an hour out of Toronto), and the cottage life. Every time I hear it, I’m transported back in time.

How about you?

About Jo-Ann Carson Where magic happens … Reports of Jo-Ann Carson’s death on a Gulf Island are greatly exaggerated or, at the very least, premature. The eclectic crew of ghosts that haunt her head spill onto the page in two series: The Gambling Ghosts and The Ghost & Abby Mysteries. A Viking with existential issues, a broken hearted Highlander, a Casanova man-witch and a Pirate with a secret are just a few of the males her strong heroines encounter in tales of fantasy, adventure and romance. A firm believer in the magic of our everyday lives, Jo-Ann loves watching sunrises, walking beaches near her home in the Pacific Northwest and reading by the fire.

  1. Some of my favorite oldie-goldies include “Blowing in the Wind” by Peter, Paul & Mary; “Brown-eyed Girl” by Van Morrison; “Your Wildest Dreams” by The Moody Blues.

  2. “Paint it Black” is my favorite Rolling Stones song, Jo-Ann! And, like Joanne, I love “Brown-eyed Girl” by Van Morrison, too. I’m part of your vintage 😉 I’ll also add “Dreamer” by Ozzy Osbourne & “I Saved the World Today” by the Eurythmics as fave songs. Not sure if they remind of a time or place, but I do love them.


  3. So many songs that I like take me back to my college days and I can pretty much guess what year they came out. Music was especially important to me in my college years. I fell asleep listening to albums with my college roommate. My last year of college, my nursing degree was a 4.5 year program, I lived at my sister and brother-in-law’s home and listened to Woodstock many nights with headphones on. Bill and I went on our first “official” date when I was living at my sister’s.
