The Song Remembers When

It was around 1990 or so and I had one of my last jobs ever. I was a crossing guard for the elementary school my kids attended. I was also heavily involved in scouting. Both of these led me to meet and become friends with the Fisher family.

It wasn't long before summer arrived and we started getting together with them for Friday night poker games. Saturdays were eventually added as well. More people joined in. We'd stay up late enough for early omelets before everyone dragged themselves home.

There was always lots of snacks, lots of beer and music. Whenever I hear this song it reminds me of those days. It's also relevant somewhat lately with the oil spill in the Gulf.

"Oil wasted in our oceans, in our seas.."

Do you have any songs that remind you of specific times in your life?
