weird songs that trigger memories – no. 1

“Think” by Aretha Franklin: The first time I remember hearing this song was when I was a freshman and starting up my very first band camp at Smith-Cotton High School. Because I was internet-less, it was next to impossible to figure out how to actually listen to the words of it, which for whatever reason were way important to me back in my 14 year old, trying to impress the overly-handsome band teacher (his nickname was Rod the Bod! Seriously!) self. I remember calling KSIS 1050 AM in Sedalia and requesting the song over and over, sitting by the radio with cassette recorder in hand to make sure I hit the record button at the exact right time.

(P.S. It just came on Pandora.)
