Snapshot 5 by Matt

Music has always played a big role in my life. It has brought up happy and sad feelings, but most the time it’s a story. I think that everyone has been in a car listening to the radio, and an old song comes on that takes you back to a time in your life. Music has always been a way to express yourself. Not one person must like a certain type of music. It’s their choice to decide what to listen to. Music is something that a lot of people bond over, and even celebrate with. Sometimes what you listen to, shows you who you truly are and what you want to be. In my life, I grew up listening Country, and Rock music. Music has a way of bringing us back in time. I remember going off to summer camp with my boy scouts troop, and listening to the song New Divide by Linkin Park. I remember sitting on the charter bus, and playing this song over and over on my ipod Nano. This was right after the new transformers movie came out, which had the song in it. I remember sitting in the movie theater and instantly falling in love with the song. It was like I was right there in the movie with them. Being a young kid I overplayed this song, and eventually stopped listening to it. As time went on, and I grew up I forgot about this song. One day driving to school I was flipping through the stations and I heard the beginning of New Divide. I sat there trying to remember where I had heard this song, and it all came flooding back to me. It took me back to that age, and that bus trip. I remembered playing this song 10 times over again, and how it took so long for it to get old. The funny thing was after that trip in the car, I found my love for the song again, and play it on occasion. I’ve always thought it was so cool to hear an old song, and have it take you back in time. This was one song that did it for me.
This was one of the album covers for the song
