Always Something There To Remind Me

A song comes on the radio and instantly, you’re transported to a different time and place. Which song(s) bring back memories for you and why? Be sure to mention the song, and describe the memory it evokes.

Dave Matthew’s Satellite

Whenever this song comes on, I am transported back to 1996 and a bar that I worked in Mark’s Place.  I was the Sun through Wed night-cook.  The kitchen closed at midnight, so I would tend the bar the rest of the night.  Since I closed the slow nights of the week, there were many days that I was all alone for at least the last half hour of the night.

I had the jukebox to entertain me.  Unfortunately, there were only a few non-country artists in the machine.  My favorite choice was Dave Matthews Band’s Under the Table and Dreaming.  I would grab a stack of red quarters, turn up the volume, and by the time Satellite came on I’d be singing at the top of my lungs and dancing around the room.  I was never alone, Dave was always nearby.

Still brings a smile to my face.
