Milestone Music - Orla Meade - How I Got My Travel Bug
Every Tuesday, we dedicate this segment to the songs that bring you right back to a very specific time in your life - first love, exams, moving out from home, backpacking around the world, nights out, nights in, going to college, bad jobs, falling in love, falling out of love, weddings and babies.
For coming on the show and sharing your Milestone Music Moment, we'll send you a lovely momento of your story. You will receive all the elements of the tale - the date, lyrics of the song and more, all on a beautifully finished poster for you to treasure.
This week's Milestone was brought to us by Orla Meade in Cork, with a track which always teleports her back to the US in the late 90's, where she was living it up in University.
Her trip to New Jersey proved to be pivotal as it was the year the world opened up to her, resulting in years of travel. Orla has been everyhwere!!
The journeys have given her lots of milestones, but the song Closing Time by Semisonic is the one that kicked it all off.
You might be settling now Orla, but you'll always have the memories!!
