Do You Remember?

Was there ever a song that you've heard from many years back that when you hear in the present moment, still brings a smile to your face? I know I do! Here's mine....

****

Do you remember the 21st night of September?
Love was changing the minds of pretenders
While chasing the clouds away

Our hearts were ringing
In the key that our souls were singing.
As we danced in the night,
Remember how the stars stole the night away

Ba de ya - say do you remember
Ba de ya - dancing in September
Ba de ya - never was a cloudy day

My thoughts are with you
Holding hands with your heart to see you
Only blue talk and love,
Remember how we knew love was here to stay

Now December found the love that we shared in September.
Only blue talk and love,
Remember the true love we share today

Ba de ya - say do you remember
Ba de ya - dancing in September
Ba de ya - never was a cloudy day

Ba de ya - say do you remember
Ba de ya - dancing in September
Ba de ya - golden dreams were shiny days

I was in high school....the clock tower, the football stadium, outside the girls locker room. Hah! The good old days. I still remember. Do you? How about you, do you have any songs in your past that when you hear now, still brings a smile to you face?

Oh yeah, BTW, do you know what song that is and who sang it?

Jozzie...I have no idea what song that is but there are many songs that bring back memories for me, too!!

The song sounds familiar, but I don't have a clue who sang it! Lots of 80s songs bring a smile to my face--each with their own memory!

One of the songs is 'Total eclipse of the heart' but I forgot who sang this song.
I was on a party and danced with my ex-boyfriend on that song. I could sing it from the first line to the last.

You know I Googled this, right??? ha! Had to know the answer. I don't recognize the lyrics to this one... but it's not a matter of age, so don't even go there... It's all about only listening to Amazing Grace-type songs at that time of my life. =)

Hi Jozzie! I saw this blog last week but the lyrics didn't register at first. Now that I've taken a second look at the lyrics, I finally recognized it! It's called SEPTEMBER. Sung by either Earth, Wind and Fire OR Kool and The Gang. It's also one of my fave songs, in the same genre as Let's Groove, Celebrate, etc. It's just one of those songs that make you want to jump up and dance! :)
