I was also glued to the tv set to see The Beatles on Ed Sullivan Show that Sunday evening in 1964. There had been news coverage of them landing at the airport when they arrived in NYC. It looked like mayhem. I was always buying the fan magazines that had anything with The Beatles on it!

I so agree @AARPLynne! Another song

that takes me back is “All my loving” by

the Beatles. It was  February 9, 1964

and my Mom, brother and I were in front

of the TV to watch the Fab 4️⃣’s  first

appearance on the Ed Sullivan show.

I had already heard and loved “I want

to hold your hand”, which had been

leaked to the airwaves. But seeing them

on TV playing that song, I fell in love

with them and still am to this day.

Their music truly changed my life 🎼💜

Gosh it really depends on the decade. Whenever I hear Thunder Road, I stop everything I'm doing to listen and think about my dear childhood friends.

Have I told you lately, 1989. Van Morrison

I walked down the aisle (for the second

time) to this absolutely beautiful song

It's now the fall of 1968. My roommate Randy and I have begun entertaining the girls in the dorm next to us. We lip synced every Marvin and Tammi song. Randy was Marvin and I was Tammi. What a great way to meet girls!! We were a hit.

It's now the fall of 1967. I went to college in Clarion and Marianne was off to Juilliard school of music in New York City.  Our lifestyles had suddenly changed dramatically. In October, I went to visit and it was the last time I saw her.

We both cried as we broke up with Never My Love by The Association playing in the background.

Oh How Happy:  Shades Of Blue

 

It was 1967 and I was heads over heels in love with Marianne.

 

This was our song.

Yes! So many songs that take me back to another day and time. This one takes me back to my senior year in high school. We were all into astrology, so this song is perfect. From 1969 . . .

Wow I have so many I could list! For today,

I’ll go with “We may never pass this way”,

1973, Seals&Crofts, artists. This was my 

(gasp) 1974 High School Senior Prom 

theme song and it catapults me back to

1974 every time I hear it, which was the

first best year of my life!  😎💜

Music can induce nostalgia quickly and easily!  What songs do this to you and how?  

 

There is an Irish song If You're Irish Come Into the Parlour, it immediately takes me back to my childhood where my parents would start dancing!
