The Reminiscing Meme

I saw this cute meme at a couple of local blogs and seeing as I just loaded new music on my non-iPod MP3 player, let’s play! How to play: Set your music delivery device on random and press forward in order to answer the following questions using the song title for your answer…. (Caveat: I…

10 Simple pleasures
