Does a song ever remind you of a certain time or place you were in before? I'm listening to Cliff Richard's 'The Young Ones' now and it's transporting me back to Penang. I heard it at the beautiful beachside hotel where we had our Christmas dinner. 'Lemon Tree' ("I don't know how, I don't know why, yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky, but all that I can see is just another lemon tree...") will always be connected with my memories of Australia. I was very young when I visited it, about six, but somehow that song lingers in my mind. I remember that song playing in the car I was in. It makes me feel so little and innocent again.
