I have posted in the past where a song can "instantly" bring you back to a place in time like nothing else. Today, while listening to music on a sunny morning run, The 5th Dimension's Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In came up in the queue and I was "instantly" transported to the summer of 1970 while on a track in Tremont in Cleveland, Ohio. My Dad took me there several times that summer to practice my starts in track; I was 8 1/2 years old. The South High School band was practicing on the craggy grass infield, and the horn section of their band "belted" out this one and only song they practiced all evening. For some uncanny reason, I can still hear those brass horns 47 years later...
