Remember what your 2006 summer was like? I can recall the main experiences, but the rest is a little fuzzy. I remember being on a beach for a good period, and I was definitely drunk for that, but all other details have lost their way as a decade of new summer experiences packed into my brain...and more booze. The one thing that helps me fill in the gaps is music. Music always brings back memories. It's like whenever I hear "All I Want For Christmas Is You", I see myself driving my blue Pontiac on my way home from school, giving epic falsetto when I hit an ice patch and skid straight into my Chemistry teacher's fence. Or when Robyn's "Call Your Girlfriend" comes on, I remember dancing at a friend's place until a fancy hand to butt move caused the collapse of an entertainment center. Oh, the memories.
So get ready to go back 10 years to 2006 with the hottest playlist of the time, and let the memories roll.
