Five Minute Friday: Song

It’s Five Minute Friday again! People all over the world blogging on the same topic on the same day for just five minutes and linking up at Lisa Jo’s place. Today’s topic: Song.


What is it about a song that seems to freeze a memory in time?

The music begins and your heart recognizes the tune. Suddenly, you are there. You are back in that place where friendships are whole and love is forever.

There is comfort in the chorus. It’s as if you could reach out and touch the people from your past. You can hear the laughter of days gone by. You can still recall the place, the time – the feelings from that moment.

Time has marched on but that song is still the same.

You can sing every word without missing a beat. The lyrics are etched in your heart.

Then, the song ends and it is like waking up from an all too pleasant dream. The curtain comes down and the memory vanishes into nothingness. And, for the rest of the day, you find yourself longing to hear that song again.

  1. Or, you could have the opposite “problem,” and songs stick in your head like super glue! As long as they bring that warm feeling you described, leaving you yearning for more. I do believe you’re experiencing a bit of sehnsucht, perhaps? Either way, I love that your “heart recognizes the tune!”
    From your FMF friend.

  2. Oh, my, I just clicked your Beth Moore link because I LOVE her (and am doing the Siesta Sisters for my first time) and now I MUST get that summer study book! Thanks for this, Stacy!

    • I think I’m going to do it, too! We’ll have to check in with each other and chat about it this summer. 🙂

    • Thank you for being an encouraging voice in the bloggy world. You have been one of the greatest blessings of FMF. 🙂

    • Thank you for stopping by, Tonya. The songs of our past are beautiful things. You are so right. Have a great day!

  3. I am so thankful that He tucks the songs away in our hearts, and brings them to the surface when we need them. Stopped over from the Five Minute Friday. Have a lovely weekend.

  4. Yes:) I love it when this happens. I love it when I start singing along from a song from the good old days and my husbands gives me a confused look and I just smile and keep singing and savor the memory. Love it! Thank you:) so glad FMF brought me here. God bless!

  5. I love the way a good song can take you back. Oftentimes, I’ll look for songs I haven’t heard in a while just so I can remember.
    Stopping over from Lisa-Jo’s. 🙂

  6. They can even invoke smells sometimes, can’t they. usually, I smell pizza with songs I wish would come again…and wow did I ever digress.

    all this to say–I wish we could sit down and chat it out. find our song;) {HUGS}
