When I asked my son to share his favorites on Spotify, his face lit up a bit. We have a history of car-ee-oke on the way to school. We have a few songs we listened to over and over - so much that we learned to sing a long.

The Devil Went Down to Georgia - by the Charlie Daniels Band

There's so much imagery in this song - the Devil went 'down' to Georgia - was he coming from Minnesota? Connecticut? Canada? 

In discussions about where the Devil may like to hang out, Ontario Canada doesn't come to mind for this California boy.

I enjoy driving. I like the road noise and the music or audiobook. I like time with my thoughts while my brain is distracted by the motion outside the vehicle while I'm safe inside.

For that reason, I enjoy the visuals in the Hotel California by the Eagles - on a dark, desert highway, cool wind in my hair. Thought it seems, no matter how many times we listened to that song, we never got those first drum beats correct. It feels like the more you listen, the sooner they should come - because, well, we already know the song is coming, what's the mystery? Just give us the intro already.

What's a song you can listen to over and over - maybe while you work? Or what's one that takes you back to a childhood memory?

    I started thinking about "my song', somehow not easy, I do not listen much to music
    (in the car it's Bach, Purcel, Vivaldi - I need to calm down my road rage :-)))
    I have few memories of music in my childhood, all Polish 70. rock songs, hard to share really
    so the ones I listen to while trying to cut off from airplane noise... Nirvana, opening songs from movies (True detective, Vikings) I love Where is My Mind by Pixies...
    and the one Philippe sings to me, je l'aime à mourir by Francis Cabrel... yeaaaah
    I really wanted to, but my answers to your question don't seem to work... I think it's a matter of what draws us to the music, with me it's the gut emotion and not words or images it bring

    @philh, I imagine your reply to the question more resonating :-)))

    and then there is @brianball Collection is "How to Share Work"... interesting, right?
    I really like this one as well
    generally <3
