Re: What Song brings back memories

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.

Diane:   I like, and agree with, your statement about a music lover usually appreciating all kinds of music. Smiley Very Happy  I have been through two periods of heavy-duty country listening, and also like a good many of the country classics from way-back-when.  Pam

I was, and still am, a Johnny Mathis fan.  I never saw him in person but I had the album with "Chances Are" on it.  I think it was his first.  I loved the picture on the cover and thought he was so cute, one of those teenage crushes.  My all time favorite song was "Wonderful, Wonderful", but I've liked everything that I've ever heard that was sung by him.

Brenda Lee brings back a lot of memories.  When we first got a TV so many shows were local,  We were lucky in Atlanta in that we had 3 channels and a lot of local talent.  One of our groups were called the "Peachtree Cowboys".  Of course everything in Atlanta is "Peachtree".  This was a country and western group that all played guitars and dressed like Roy Rogers.  They were on Saturdays along with all the other westerns on Saturday mornings.  About once a month they would have a little girl on with them.  I remember blonde hair in a "poodle" hair cut and she wore a cowgirl outfit with fringe on the vest and skirt.  She must have been about 10 years old, which made her a bit younger than I was.  When she opened her mouth everyone was amazed at the sound that came out.  I would have given anything to sound like her.  We all felt like "we knew her when" a few years later when she hit the national stage.


Wow  great story!   thanks for sharing.

When I was in high school, the local hotel would shut down the dance hall to adults and let the teenagers have it on Monday nights.  Didn't make much difference what type, style, or category 

of music was played during the evening, the last dance was ALWAYS "Crazy" by Patsy Cline.

To this day, every time I hear the song it "takes me back" to a much simpler time.


Great memories!  thanks for sharing.   along with Patsy,  I remember Brenda Lee

The Way We Were    Barbra Streisand

 

This song always makes me so sad... from the wonderful movie of the same name!  Just reminds me of my youth, and school and those early days..  and of course the movie. : )
