Allison Krauss’ version of “When You Say Nothing At All” is on the radio right now.
I remember the first time I heard that song play on my little boombox. I was 11 years old, and I was sitting on the floor in my little purple bedroom.
She started singing and I crawled over to my stereo and stared, mesmerized.
At some point I realized that my mom had been yelling at me to come down for dinner. Several times. But there was nothing I could do! She was singing in that high angelic voice, the most beautiful song I had ever heard!
Its funny the way a song will hit us, stop the world around us, transport us to another time or place. I love music.
Does anyone else have song memories like this?
