There are no chills like the ones you get when certain songs come on unexpectedly. You maybe hear the strains of the notes in your car when you’re flipping through the stations or when you walk into a store and it takes a good minute before you recognize that there are words that are speaking directly to your soul over the din of the conversations that surround you and the ping of the registers in front of you and through the reminders that have been running through your head for days. But when those chords strike a fiber of recognition within you, the world stops for just a moment and there’s a transport that takes place.
Perhaps even more than movies, there are certain songs out there that bring my beating heart from a patter to a thud, that create a tingle up my spine, that cause me to revert back to a former version of myself. And sometimes that emotional time-travel leaves me spent.
