Thread Name: Songs w/mental or emotional associations
Subject: Songs w/mental or emotional associations
I was just thinking about how we often tend to associate particular songs with people or situations, and how that may color our view of those songs. For instance, I have fond memories of singing "Rainy Day Women #12 & 35" at the top of my lungs in my backyard with 6 other people, disturbing the neighbors. As a result, the song always brings a smile to my face. On the other hand, The Eagles' "Lyin' Eyes" was on the recirculating-every-hour CD at the movie theater I worked at last summer. I can't hear it without smelling the nauseating odor of All Purpose Cleaner and popcorn oil.
What are your songs with specific associations?
