Look Back Family Reunion Outdoor Concert Playlist

Remember when you first heard  Earth Wind and Fire or "Try to Remember (The time of September)" as sung by Harry Belafonte?

Autumn is a time to look back and enjoy the warm remembrance of the good old days. Getting cozy under backyard string lights wearing knit sweaters and warm blankets - that's what life is about. As a video music concert projects on the outdoor screen, everyone is sipping warm cider, coffee, and rum, eating sweet potato pie and carrot cake. Hot buttery caramel popcorn is popping and everyone is talking about the good times. We're making special. I'm talking about an outdoor backyard concert. A Look-Back family reunion outdoor concert under the stars. Sound nice? Let's start planning. Just create a Youtube video concert playlist of your favorite concerts of yesteryear and recapture the nostalgia of your past with family, friends, and that special someone you built a family with. 

Tell your children what the songs meant to you and how the dates connect from your first date, courtship, engagement to marriage. Music defines the social history of our culture and times, as well as the special moments in which our children were conceived, born and nurtured. It recaptures precious thoughts, wonder, and feelings that remind us of the moments we grew up just a little bit more. 

To get your started here's a beautiful comprehensive playlist written by my wife Brenda made specifically for our Friday evening date nights.  I call it the YouTube "Look Back Family Concert Playlist". Use the video concert playlist to get your autumn season outdoor family reunion concert up and running. It's a message of hope, love, gratitude, loyalty and what it means to finally be completely and fully home.
