Hey ATS

I was just wandering through/playing along to some classic songs on youtube and nostalgia struck me during a few of them, so I decided to pose the question here. What song gives you the most nostalgia?

For me, the song that gives me the most nostalgia, I think, would be "winds of change," by Scorpion..

Not sure why. I never listened to the song much. I suppose I heard my brothers playing it or maybe on the radio a few times.

But for some reason it always takes me back to about grade 4 when we use to go explore the hills behind our elementary school

Good feeling....

Feel free to post yours..

The most nostalgic song

For me it is "Wheel in the Sky" by Journey.

I was listening to this song on 9/20/1981 when a friend of mine accidentally ran me over with his car at a party, we were all drunk.
I was 16 at the time.

"Wheel in the sky keeps on turning, don't know where I'll be tomorrow" still seems like fitting lyrics and still gives me chills every time I hear it.

Simple Minds - Don't You [Forget about Me].

www.youtube.com...

Reminds me of the view I had from my bedroom across the city when I was a teenager in the 1980's. Could see the ocean at the horizon, rows of houses across the long gardens and various high rise blocks. Could even see a gold statue of Jesus if I looked with binoculars.

Chilling out in the 1990's during my college days playing with PC graphics, AdLib sound boards

808 State - Pacific State


Set Adrift on Memory Bliss


Betty Boo - where are you baby?

Classic nostalgia, reminds me of spending time with my Dad who enjoyed this song. I believe he felt he was unable to spend as much time with me as he could have due to serving in Vietnam and then being divorced from my Mom. We have a great relationship now but I think he regretted missing out on much of my childhood and this song was kind of a bonding one for us. To this day it takes me back to the times I did get to spend with him.

fade into you by mazzy star. easy choice for me

when i hear this song i am instantly transported back to a 14-15 year old miserable teenager.
my father was abusive. an alcoholic. my mother was 1,000 miles away.
there was a girl i liked that did not even know i existed. when i hear this i can see exactly how my room used to look. i can remember smells.

i remember like it was yesterday laying on my bed, smoking a cigarette, contemplating suicide....



such a great song. it made me so happy yet so sad at the same time.
i would steal my dads scotch and plants and sit there and smoke cigarettes all night listening to music.....
like it was yesterday

i can remember smells.

Strange how a song can do that isn't it?

The one I posted, every time I hear it I get a flashback to my ambulance ride, can taste and smell the blood, and smell the hospital.
Strange just how powerful music can be.

When I was a kid in the 1970s we would spend summers at our Grandparents house in Oklahoma City. Their possessions from another era- the '40s, '50s, '60s- clothes, shoes, furniture, décor, etc just fascinated me. They had one of those humongous reel-to-reel tape players and my Grandma had a collection of musical soundtracks on tape. We would listen to them over and over until we had all the words memorized. I guess I particularly think of this one because their world seemed so wonderful to me and a far cry from my life at home with my parents which was very stressful and depressing.
