My parents singing "Yellow Submarine", the radio was playing it every other something. My brother's favorite that I'd fall to sleep with...he had giant speakers in the basement " In the White Room" by Cream, takes me right back there..." Layla" too.

I have really enjoyed reading all of these posts.. and all the memories that music brings with it...

and here is one of mine..    remembering those days and Bruce and his music!!

 

 Thunder Road   1975     https://youtu.be/x5kXnq5IjdU
  

A thematic companion piece to 'Born to Run' (see No. 1 on our list of the Top 10 Bruce Springsteen Songs), this soaring album-opening cut follows a similar narrative but gets there in an entirely different way. Beginning and ending with moments of quiet reverie, 'Thunder Road' builds to a moment of determined hopefulness in between, symbolized by the unforgettable image of Springsteen running into Clarence Clemons' arms onstage during countless shows in the 1980s.

 

ps  hard to listen to Clarence without a tear or two!  RIP Big Man!

"Over the Rainbow", from "The Wizard of Oz", also sung, very Nani, ( beautiful), by "Brother Iz", from Hawai'i, before he had died! If one has never "heard Brother Iz", sing, "Over the Rainbow", bring it up, on "U-Tube", you'll never listen to it, the "same way", again"!

Harlem Nocturne by The Viscounts (1959). According to Wikipedia, the tune has been around since 1939 and has been recorded by just about everyone, but The Viscounts' version is by far the most earthy and moody instrumental I've ever heard. I challenge anyone to do a slow dance to this tune and not feel sexy.

OMG as you get older what songs DON"T bring back memories? First one that comes to mind-

"Good Thing"-The Fine Young Cannibals

A background song in the movie "Tin Men". A concert I went to maybe 7 months pregnant...and Roland couldn't dance to save his life, but my daughter was in there feeling the beat so strong my buddy thought I'd go into labor that night. Then fast forward to that daughter as a hyperactive infant who would only go to sleep with music playing..."My GOOD thing WHERE have ya gone...", then fast forward a decade plus and that daughter estranged " Where have ya gone, ya been gone so long..." . Still a timeless song despite all that.


Great song and great memories!      and yes even the videos of FYC  are great...  I loved She Drives Me Crazy..  "that long blond hair"  !!
