Just before 2019 arrived, I heard this song on T.V. one night. I probably haven’t listened to it for more than 10 years. But it directly took me back to 2005. Unfortunately I was wrong because it was released in October 2005. But how and why does it belong to 2005 summertime in my head?
Well, memory is a complex and a tricky thing. I had to take a walk down memory lane. I had a very long and amazing summer holiday in 2005. In August I went to Grenoble and stayed there until early October. I came back to Turkey and started my last year in college. During that time, our friends from Grenoble came to Turkey to visit us and this song was very popular back then, I mean 2006 wintertime. And when summer 2006 arrived, it was even more popular because it was one of 2006 FIFA World Cup songs.
In my mind, this song is related to people who I met in Grenoble and those people belong to summer 2005. So the mystery’s solved. This is the song that reminds me of summertime, summertime 2005. I really love it. One of the rarest songs that elevates my mood and one of my favorites during my living room dance parties lately.
