You know when a song comes on and you're instantly transported back in time to the moment when it was especially significant in your life? The moment when the first few notes play and a huge wave of nostalgia crashes over you? Well that happened to me the other day - I was driving along and Maroon 5's 'Moves like Jagger' came on and before I knew it, I was back in a club in Bath during freshers week four years ago, dancing my heart out. For me, this is one of the most enjoyable sensations out there; having such a deep connection to a song that it can take you back to an exact moment in time years ago is simply amazing to me. So, the other day I sat down, went through my iTunes library and composed the following list;
