They say everybody has a song that takes them back. You hear the tones and drift away to a place you thought you’d lost. Memories resurface of where you were; what you were doing; even how you felt. For me that song is Time After Time by Cyndi Lauper.
I recall everything about that song. I remember the distinct intro, the gentle way Cyndi almost speaks the words, so personal, like she’s almost whispering into your ear. I remember the video, somehow grown up, not catering to the masses. And most of all, I remember that for the first time in my life, I felt that I really understood someone’s spoken words. In the space of three minutes, I become an adult.
I grew up when I first listened to that song and I relive the moment every time I hear it: Time After Time…
