Community Spotlight: Where were you on 9/11/01?

Dear Members,

Welcome to our community spotlight feature*.  This week we chose bandgeek1985’s topic “Do you remember where you were on 9/11?” It is a great topic to share your experience and bond with other community members.

commspot

Reminiscing with others is one way to help us to get through tough times. We were all affected by the 9/11 tragedies and it is important to remember those who were lost, and what happened that day.

Although this significant day was yesterday, it is still a great topic to talk about. Feel free to share your 9/11 experience on bandgeek1985’s topic here.

See you soon,

The Toluna Team

Community Spotlight: What song reminds you of someone special in your life?

Dear Members,

Welcome to our community spotlight feature*.  This week we chose Terri102066’s topic asking “What one song reminds you of someone special in your life?”

comm spotlight

Hearing  a song or just even listening to an entire album can be powerful enough to remind you of special memories you have with other people. Here are some songs that hold special meaning to our members:

Winchestergirl:  “why does it always rain on me” by a band called Travis, it was out at the time and it was always playing when i first met my future hubby

Willande0: Shaggy singing “For your eyes only”

Pc1976: “Look At Us” by Vince Gill

Paul  1948: Terry you have my wife and my favourite song right here, my favourite group and singer, Chicago with Peter Cetera up front, this is on of their fantastic songs… As our life has travelled along I think another one we have added to “our songs” is “I’ve had the time of my life” by Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes, and that is how I feel today… One of my favourite and I always turn up the car radio and sing along loud, (like Homer Simpson does while driving his car), and that is “The Joker” by the Steve Miller Band…. Thanks for the memories; I’ve had great times with music in my life

2rallan: My late husband and I considered “We’ve Only Just Begun” as “our song”. It was popular when we married in 1969

A big thank you goes out to our Featured User, Terri102066, for inspiring this week’s spotlight, as well as, to all of her topic’s contributors. Feel free to join in the conversation and commenting on the topic here.
