Some songs, no matter when I hear them, cause my memory to immediately jump back in time to a random moment of my childhood. When Rock and Roll Hall of Fame artist Ann Wilson (of Heart) took the stage at Wolf Trap recently and sang “Barracuda,” the iconic galloping guitar riff immediately drew my memory back to a warm summer day many, many years ago at my childhood community pool.
“Barracuda” was playing on the pool’s PA system (courtesy of Philadelphia’s 93.3 WMMR) when I learned to dive through a hula-hoop into the deep end of the pool. For some reason, I will always associate the song with that memory.
