ramblin rose: music makes you remember

A few years ago, I posted a memory I have of my parents and their pink and black Rambler they had when I was a kid. My brother was asking about that today, so I am telling the story again. here is the song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rB2hhgjlgFE

When i was a kid, my parents had a pink and black Rambler. My parents were also big fans of Nat King Cole. Every time we went on a long drive or road trip, we sang songs. One of the first songs they always sang after we got in the car was Ramblin Rose by Nat King Cole. If the song came on the radio, we all sang along. If it was on the radio, or the record player, when we were home, my parents would sing along to it and dance. I played this today, closed my eyes, and i rushed back through time.
There i was in the middle of the back seat between my brothers. The wind was rushing through the windows. I was young. My parents were there (young and gorgeous), my brothers too (healthy, happy, silly).
Made me cry. Couldn’t believe the power of that song today.

  1. I remember that song so well! Music always takes me back to fond memories too. It is powerful enough to invoke the strongest emotions and bring about tears, which it often does in my case.

    It’s all new to me. I must of have been very young because the song is unfamiliar. However, I remember pictures of the card. It apparently was the important transportation vehicle to the family in those days. It was light pink and had fins. Two doors if I recall correctly and a round roof. Don’t recall what the inside was like.
