31 Day Music Challenge: Day 6 A Song that Reminds You of Somewhere

“Sacrifice” by Alaine reminds me of St. John, USVI.  It was the last day of our vacation there in 2007 that I first heard this song on the radio during our ride down the mountain to the ferry.  I thought it was Madonna at first, a reggae version.  Close your eyes and listen, it sounds like Madonna.  The melody was catchy, and I tapped my feet on the dashboard as I looked out the window taking in the lush jungle, rolling mountains, and beautiful blue water in the distance.  When love songs come on the radio, I like to joke with my husband and dedicate them to him. I listened to the lyrics and looked up “Sacrifice” online.  I found it right away and downloaded the reggae gold album from iTunes with it.  That was six years ago, and still when I hear this song, I’m right back in that jeep coming down the mountains in St. John.
