Subject: RE: Songs w/mental or emotional associations
"Rose Garden" takes me back to a car-ride in Spain when I was little. "I'd rather be a ..." takes me back to the kitchen, with the radio playing, when I was about 8, In Scotland. "Silver seeds of the sun", a-capello version, places me, frozen with epiphany, standing in the upstairs hallway of our old NJ house.
The one that has always been most evocative, though, is a song that had brief popularity in the early 70's called "Don't lose that Number". When I hear that song, I SEE the hotel curtains blowing in the gentle Hawaiian wind, I FEEL the excitement of that foreign beach just out of sight, waiting for me. I think it hit the top of the list when we were there.
