Musical Memories

It’s funny how music can take your mind back to a specific time or place.  I didn’t have time to run this morning and it snowed this afternoon so I ran my 6 miles this evening on the treadmill.  I usually listen to my ipod on the treadmill but for some reason tonight I decided to turn on the radio.  The station it was on was playing songs for their “Saturday Night Dance Party”.  So, for the next 57 minutes (today was a slow pace day) I was at The Alibi in Mt. Pleasant, MI circa 1977-79 with “Working at the Car Wash” and “I’m just a love machine” getting people to the dance floor.  The 6 miles flew by as I thought about those days 30 years ago sitting at the table laughing with my roommates Steve and Jeff and trying to get up the nerve to ask a girl to dance.   

I’d never want to go back to those days but I also hope I will never forget them.
