    It takes me back to the summer of 1991! It is - as we say in Sweden - "sönderspelad" though... (Which roughly means it's been so overplayed it's become "broken".)

    I remember, when I was little, my mom had a DVD (video tape? I don't remember) with the music video of this song and she'd play it on the TV for me when I'd come home from school. It always made me happy after rough days. Listening to it now brings back so many good memories.

    When i was a child my Mother sent me to some weird Christian art and crafts group throughout the summer and for goodness knows what reason we had to sit in the pews of the church in the morning - which had a large pull down screen for projecting videos on - and they'd play this song. EVERY MORNING. I feel like this can't be real and it's some sort of disturbing pseudo memory. I still love the song though.
