    Hey Saki, welcome back!

    Songs that come to mind for me are R.E.M. - Losing My Religion

    Also Natilie Imbruglia - Torn (about the end of a relationship, but still some of the lyrics seemed appropriate - "I'm all out of faith, this is how I feel / Illusion never turned into something real")

    Let It Be is a good one though Andre. Sometimes I feel the need to take a deep breath, listen to that song, and let it all go for awhile.

    Worldy Andrey, that reminded me of when I was playing 'I am the Walrus' and my mother burst into my room and confiscated my LP saying 'that music is demon influenced'.

    Which has just reminded me of when I was learning the piano as a kid, my father hit me for playing a practice song. That song was 'jingle bells'.

    Happy times!

    I ran away from home when I was 11 and Happy Together was on the radio coming out of the houses I walked past. There was another kid's bike in front of his house, I almost stole it but thought better than to make that poor kid feel bad about losing his bike.

    "How Can I Tell You?" by Cat Stevens, from head to foot a shock shoots through me and makes my hair stand on end. First love gone forever and unreclaimable youth.

    If you want to hear it for yourself, I uploaded an mp3 on Putfile: http://media.putfile.com/How-Can-I-Tell-You-76

    Finally, "Long Time Gone" by Crosby Stills and Nash just makes me feel alive like few other sensations.

    I have a few...

    The last day of my first job, I bumped The Ohio Players' "Time Slips Away." I can just remember watching the place as I drove away...

    To this day, I can't listen to Stevie Wonder's "For Once in My Life" while driving. During the high point in his harmonica solo (around 2:02), I was clipped by a truck. Brings back too many emotions.

    Other times when I'm just sitting at my computer, I'll connect certain songs with certain times in my life. I can remember driving and listening to particular albums, because they were on heavy repeat.
