That Particular Song



I find music very much related to nostalgia. I have experienced it several times. You are having a regular day, busy with your work. Suddenly, a song plays on the radio and that takes you back to a different time, in a different place in the blinking of eyes. For the next 5 minutes, you are not in this world. And when the song ends, you realize the tremendous emotional impact it just had on you.

  12. I completely agree to this thought. It happens with me (and must be happening with everyone else who is a bit sentimental and takes interest in music). Your poem is touching and people like me can connect to it.
