Songs that trigger emotions & memories ?

Two Princes by the Spin Doctors always reminds me of my childhood bestest friend. we listened to it on repeat for about 3 months because that's what 14-year-old girls do.

The Joker by Steve Miller Band brings back youth group road trips in a big ol' church van. Ironic, I know, with all the lyrics about toking. We were Jebus Rebels. :twisted:

    Pearl Jam's Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town always makes me think of sitting in my daughter's room at 3 in the morning, singing to her in the hopes of getting her back to sleep.

    Actually, I have a slew of songs like that, since I've never sung traditional lullabies to my kids, but Elderly Woman is the the clear winner.

    I'm going to youtube those songs when I get home, but I'm assuming you grew up in the 1970s? :) Wish I spent my childhood in that era where kids go outside and play, it seems with technology that doesn't exist hahah!

    Cherish those moments because kids grow up so fast! Ahh, I also remember when my mom sung lullabies and tickle me after lol

    For a second i thought the part where you said "I touch myself" related to you rather than the song

    Lol, we all have that one song designated towards the Ex :(

    Two Princes is from the early 90s and made a group of session musicians one-hit wonders.

    I haven't heard it but I can tell its probably filled with lovey emotions that would certainly spark that thought of the ex :"(

    Actually, I grew up in the 80's (born in the late 70's), but my brothers and I were definitely play outside kids. We had an Atari 2600, but there was only one TV in the house so the Atari was only for rainy days. Most of the time we were out on our bikes, exploring the woods behind the house or playing kickball in the street. We went outside even in the middle of the crazy Buffalo-style winter!

    Oh okay. Seems like you've had an adventurous childhood! Even though I was born in 1994 - there were times where me and my dad would go fishing, sometimes I would catch little lizards and keep them as a pet LOL.

    I was going to say 'Eastbound and Down' by Jerry Reed, but after some further consideration I've decided to go with 'Landslide' by Fleetwood Mac. :)
