Remembering When

Does hearing old songs take you back to a specific time and place? Today, for example, while listening to the 80s channel on Sirius Radio, I heard Love Shack by the B-52s. I specifically remember driving around in my electric blue Geo Metro in the fall of 1999 while a freshman at the University of Kansas. It was a rainy Friday night and I didn't have anything to do. So I hopped in my car and cruised around the part of town where many fraternities and sororities were having parties. At the time, I was considering joining the Greek system so it gave me a sense of belonging - even though I wasn't invited to their keggers. I can still hear the drops of rain landing on my windshield.
