Chances are, you've had a big moment in your life - one of those things that made you happy or changed your outlook on things or scarred you in some way.
Well, for many people, music is directly connected to that moment.
Maybe it's a wedding song, or a song you couldn't stop playing after a break-up, or a lullaby you'd sing to your child, or a song from your youth.
Well, CBC 'Canada Writes' has just kicked off a series called 'The Song That Changed Your Life'.
For the next three weeks, they're asking Canadians to share a personal story about an important moment in their lives, and the music that played a role in it.
Here's what you have to do: put together a 300-400 world essay about that song or musician or band or symphony that meant something to you during a key time in your life.
The folks at CBC 'Canada Writes' will post their favourite stories on their website.
The winner of 'The Song That Changed Your Life' challenge will receive a 16G iPad Mini. The winning story will also be prominently featured on the 'Canada Writes' site.
They'll be announcing the judge in the coming weeks.
