I love how music can transport you to different times and places in an instant. You just need to be careful not to listen too much to songs or you will lose their association with the past and they will become cluttered in the present (unless that is precisely what you want). About a year ago, I wrote a short story entitled “Time after Time” which I may one day either try to publish or post here. In any event, “Time after Time” in part deals with the way music affects how we handle situations and conditions our lives. In the story, I reference these videos by Cyndi Lauper, Lionel Ritchie, and Phil Collins (as well as mention Chet Baker’s version of the jazz standard “Time after Time“).
