Song Title: We Are Young
Age at time of Song Memory : 23

During the summer following graduation from university, two of my best friends and I were on a road trip to another friend’s wedding. We were dressed in shorts and tank tops, no makeup, with the dresses we were going to wear dangling on hangers in the car window so they wouldn’t wrinkle during the five hour drive. Our hair was done nicely for the wedding, though, so we couldn’t open the windows as we drove across the interstate in the Oklahoma summer heat. When We Are Young came up on the often used ‘Roadtrop Mix’ cd, instead of going up and down with the notes of the song, we simply sang louder when the notes were higher. By the time the final chorus was winding down, we were all laughing so hard that we weren’t able to finish the song.
