It's a holiday weekend and relaxing has been in full swing, with a trip upstate to quiet NY towns on the Hudson.
Many of the towns had little hints of nostalgia peppered throughout their streets. Likewise, the tunes flowing from my iPod/Pandora stations seemed to track back into my memory and drag out some songs associated with specific periods of my past.
One such track - still getting plenty of intentional play these days due to its insidious hooks - is this one from Chicago's finest gloomy punks:
MP3: Alkaline Trio - Private Eye (via Insound)
Taken from the 2001 album From Here to Infirmary
Private Eye sends me right back to uni days, shared passion for music and the moments a single riff or lyric can recall so vividly. Add to that the fact that it's a great tune to barrel around winding country roads to and you've got yourself a keeper. Good times.
What songs take you back?
