Do You Have A Special Song?
“What song makes you think of home? It doesn’t have to literally be about home. Just a song that somehow embodies the concept for you, or makes you feel at home in some way”.
Just for fun, since we are in February, the month of Valentine’s Day, I decided to ask one of my best friends the question above.
We’ve been friends since university. She is smart, hilarious, and looks remarkably like Audrey Hepburn. Lucky her!
This was her decisive answer:
“Feels So Good, by Chuck Mangione”.
This instrumental piece reminds my friend of her childhood on the Canadian west coast in Vancouver. It conjures that feeling she loves of experiencing nature in a lively urban setting, and images of the beach, the ocean and the mountains.
“To me, home is more than just being in a house. I feel at home when I am outdoors, in nature.”
What do you think? Is there a song that connects you to home? Feel free to leave a comment.
My friend didn’t yet know about my blog when I asked her the above question, so I had to smile when I thought about my own answer from December 1st:
No wonder we’ve been friends for so long.
