Oldies but still goldies #by: Márcia Schwarz Perel

No, this is not a blog about Betty White or Joan Rivers. This is about songs that might spark your brain into going back in time, back to a place, remind you of a scent. This is what music does to me. It makes me travel to the past, it brings me back a feeling of nostalgia, and may it be good or bad. Some songs remind me of some Brazilian soap operas ( did I ever mention I have a tape collection on those soundtracks?), others remind me of the loud radio on summer days by the swimming pool, at Centro Israelita do Paraná.

There may be too many songs to remember, but lately I have been listening to a Brazilian radio station on the internet (Transamerica Light), and the songs immediately make me travel in time. I now invite you to travel with me, as I share my memories with you. The list is long, so buckle up!

16.  Groovin in the midnight – Maxi Priest
17.  I’ve been thinking about you – London Beat
