I was reading the absolutely hate song thread and so many are on my love those songs list, it reminded me of my recent excursion at you tube where I found some old songs that really took me back to other times and places...Funny how songs can rekindle feelings, almost like you're back there when you first heard it.
These take me back to the smokey bars and jukeboxes of the '60's
"Woman" by Peter and Gordon
"Woman, Woman" by Gerry and the Pacemakers
"This Guy's in Love With You" Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass
"Something" The Beatles
"I'll Never Fall in Love Again" Tom Jones
"Suspicious Minds" Elvis
"Pretty Woman" Roy Orbison
Beyond that, these take me back to my mother's kitchen table and the family guitars:
I'm not Lisa
Folsom Prison Blues
lots of Everly Brothers
Plus a thousand old, old standards no one else here may never have heard of.
There is one song that reminds me of when I was just a little kid of five, "It Might as Well be Spring". When I hear it it takes me right back to the yard of the house we lived in and a tree that grew in the middle of the grass. I can see it in my minds eye and can feel the feeling I had in that moment.
Anyone else care to revisit the past?
