Music and Your RV Memories…
Music has this profound way of bringing back memories and reminding us of a time when we were listening, singing, and driving. I remember the day we totalled our trailer 20 years ago and what we were listening to the very moment we had our accident…(“Kiss from a Rose” by Seal). The Bizarre thing is that our Kids are adults now and they too have a special connection to that Seal Album, almost like it’s printed on their memories…
I also remember being a kid watching my late Dad negotiate the road en-route to our annual vacation. It was late at night and my Dad had six “8 Track tapes”. I clearly remember him tapping his fingers gently on the steering wheel while Neil Diamond was belting out “Cracklin Rosie”.
Let’s have some fun!!
20 years later we have started RV’ing/Caravaning a second time around and there are songs and playlists (…not 8 Track tapes…bwahahaha) that we play while towing, and at our camp sites. Often one hears other RV’ers music usually in the distance and I cannot help but think about the significance of the songs they’re playing
and what memories and feelings they evoke. One time we were at a National Park and a Family were playing their music very loud. While I don’t condone this behaviour in any way, I turned off my music to enjoy their fantastic list of extremely “Salsa-able” Cuban beats. At this stage of the evening I had enjoyed my 3 beverage maximum and found my hips doing a Salsa across our outdoor mat….I guess my point is that as unacceptable as their loud music was, my wife and I often chat about that night.
Share your Lists and Memories with me….
I invite you to send those memories to me and let’s make a bunch of lists which I’ll post on my site, Facebook and Pinterest. No matter where you’re from or what your taste in music. I will include all your contact info, as well well as copy and paste your exact stories onto those pages and posts. There are 100 ways to share these lists and make them available on your streaming subscription of choice. The cool thing is that we’d all be able to read your stories while listening to your memories. Obviously there are tunes and memories that we can’t share as they might be a litlle “explicit”, but it certainly would be fun.
So if your memories of an occasion come flooding back when you hear a song, share them with us….You know, that time you did the Tango at your favourite campsite!! Please send them via email, comment on my site or Facebook. Also include your method of listening to music so we can make it available to your subscription without any copyright issues…even if we just list your “Mix Tape” and moments it would certainly be fun!!
Safe Travels Everyone…
