    you know how you can listen to a certain song and it can instantly remind you of a point in your life, when you listened to it before? or even an album or a certain band. i find it strange yet fascinating that music has this ability to do this to people. so my question is, what band, song, or artist takes you back to good times, or good memories? and share your stories if you wish...

    for me, it would have to be radiohead's OK computer, especially the song the tourist. this was the album that i listened to for the majority of the summer of 2004, when i was back home with family and my friends from home. i distincly remember tripping while listening to the album, and as soon as we got to the tourist, some girl was like "this is too depressing", at that instant we turned it off. this was my 'mellow' album, the one i would turn on if i was having a personal smoke session, thinking my thoughts...

    now whenever i listen to the album, and especially this song, i remember home and all the good times i had there.

  3. Well, there's a feeling in the air
    Just like a Friday afternoon.
    Yeah, you can go there if you want
    Though it fades too soon.

    So go on, let it be.
    If there's a feeling coming over me,
    Seems like it's always understood this time of year.

    [To Chorus:]
    Well, I know there's a reason to change.
    Well, I know there's a time for us.
    You think about the good times
    And you live with all the bad.
    You can feel it in the air,
    Feeling right this time of year.

    Well, there's a football in the air,
    Across a leaf blown field.
    Yeah, and there's your first car on the road,
    And the girl you'd steal.

    So go on with yourself
    If there's a feeling that there's something else.
    Seems like it's always understood
    This time of year.

    Guess there's just enough redneck in me to reslly enjoy bands like better than ezra, sister hazel, drivin n cryin...rockabilly kinda stuff. Everytime I hear this song I can see myself as a junior in high school driving my old ugly dodge pickup with the windows down. i can almost smell the air...

    It was what my brother lisented to so it's what I heard growing up. It helps me remember how good it felt to be a care-free kid.

    I remember in the early 90s, even though I was into the dead and it wasn't a cool thing, just absolutely groovin' on phish. I couldn't believe that such a good band existed. I still thought that Jerry was better and more sublime, but phish was like an antelope. Back then it was hard to get their live shit, but Junta just blew my mind for their originality and musicianship. Everytime I listen to YEM, or Esther, Foam, etc. I think back to those days.
