The GoGo's - We Got The Beat / Our Lips are Sealed
No other song(s) take me to a hot summer day at the beach (in the 80's), than these two. I was in my teens with no worries, a beautiful girlfriend, a great car, and my entire life ahead of me. I smile everytime.

AC/DC - Back in Black
The first album that I bought with my own "earned" money. Prior to this, music was gifted to me either directly, or via gift certificates. Also the first album that turned me on to hard rock, and AC/DC in general. Oh, and it broke 3 years of constant Disco that my parents played through the family "Hi-fi". Not the exact one, but close.

Sultans of Swing always reminds me of sitting in the drafting room attached to the woodshop in High School listening to the little FM radio we had sitting on the counter.

Thanks for that Ray Lynch - Deep Breakfast post.
I played the heck out of it when first released (and still have it on vinyl somewhere).

Good one! Reminds me of Wreck Beach in Vancouver.

Lunatic Fringe - Red Rider, takes me back to an out of town basketball tournament in high school

Crazy Train - Ozzy, we listened to this one in our 'area' in the univerity hall way.

And there are a good dozen or more songs that make me think of my wife throughout our years together.

Oooh, weddings. I have some songs from mine that I remember.

My wife and I danced to Tupelo Honey at our wedding reception. The song is so good it didn't matter we can't dance so well. smile

Also, earlier that day at the ceremony, my brother played piano while my sister sang Mary Chapin Carpenter's version of Grow Old Along With Me.

Also, as the DJ was preparing to announce our arrival at the reception, I asked him to play The Who's Baba O'Riley. It set the tone for the rest of the night. smile

I have to say I'm reminded of that day whenever I hear these songs.

Gordon Lightfoot music reminds me of heading up to cottage country in Northern Ontario in my 1980 Gran Prix, older Elton John reminds me of that car too. Bob Seger "Night Moves" reminds me of cruising down Yonge St in my '69 Fastback on Saturday nights and his album "Against the Wind" reminds me of pumping gas at the Texaco after school.

OK, I've loved the idea of this thread but hadn't been able to make time to write.

Steely Dan's Aja is the most memorable...umm...memory. I was a teenager and at my friend's house in NJ. It was the only time I had taken any real amounts of hallucinogenics and as I sat there with a viewpoint of a Fisheye lens from an upper corner of the room and watching colors coming out of the speakers, Aja was on "repeat" on his turntable for hours. Aja is, coincidentally, one of my favorite albums, but I think that's more for it's "vibe" than the fact that the album always brings me back to that experience.

The Cure's Disintegration always brings me back to driving through the Green Mountains of Vermont and the White Mountains of NH. The grand, long, repeating opening segments of their songs fit the trip perfectly.

The Pretenders' Learning to Crawl was played an awful lot in my Datsun 210. I had some 6X9s mounted in pre-built cabinets and a 50 WPC (likely 10, really) booster amp and I used to crank that all the time....via a cassette I made from the album.

Kiss Alive, Ted Nugent Double Live Gonzo and any old Aerosmith album would bring me right back to my old room when I was a teen.

Was that, like, a budget version of the 240z?

More like comparing a Pinto to a Mustang.
