hey dad, here's a riddle for ya. find the answer. theres a reason for the world...you and i.

thats a line from the song "the riddle" by five for fighting. both my dad and i had such love for these guys. his favorite thing was that they had such a strong name for a band that sings relatively cute/light/loving tunes.

there are things in my life that hit that sweet spot of reminding me of a memory and this band is one of those things. this song really resonates with me.

what is it about certain songs that have the power to take you somewhere else? or feel such a strong emotion? take journey...who doesnt have 1000 memories surrounding "dont stop believing"? i for one still smile when r. kelly's "remix to ignition" comes on. same for 50 cent's "in da club" and ace of base's "i saw the sign". ill always get excited for the backstreet boys, jefferson starship, the spin doctors and phil collins.

its pretty cool how powerful music can be.
