Music Can Take You Right Back to Being 17 Again!

Advertisements

Getting older is so very weird.

In my mind, I still feel like a high school girl with a high ponytail, a fishing pole, and not a care in the world. I can still hear Reba, Garth, Martina, Brooks, Dunn, Trace, Faith, and of course Bonnie singing to me on warm summer nights.

I got the charge of a lifetime when I read about a recent show that Bonnie Raitt performed with a group of friends. What friends, you might wonder? Only the likes of Martina McBride, Delbert McClinton, John Prine, and legendary blues man Keb’ Mo’. And some of the songs that Bonnie was performing were written by the likes of The Talking Heads, INXS, and B.B. King. I squealed with delight as I read the line up to my daughter, a young woman just shy of 13.

“Mom. That’s all old music.”

“It is NOT that old! It’s only...” I found myself trailing off as the reality hit. “25 years old.”

It’s true. I have a few more wrinkles now. I have gray hair, a preteen, and some parts are sagging where they used to be tight – but I also have my happy memories of music that takes me back to the feeling I used to get as a girl. I might be middle aged now, but music can take me right back to being 17 again.

Getting older is weird sometimes, but how lucky we are to have the chance to do it.
