    I listen to a lot of music... a lot of music... and if I was to hear 20 songs on the radio I could likely recall a point in my life for each song. Off the top of my head though there are a few that I can think of.

    I will listen to almost any song by Bobby Vinton if I hear it. Not because I care for his music but because my Mom loved him, "The Polish Prince". As soon as I hear any of his music I think back to my Mom and her love of music.

    The Tiffany cover of I Think We're Alone Now. No matter what I may be doing hearing just a few notes of that song takes me back to high school and spending time with somebody that, at the time, meant the world to me.

    I think we're alone now
    There doesn't seem to be anyone around
    I think we're alone now
    The beating of our hearts is the only sound

    Better Days by The Goo Goo Dolls. Mrs. Kevin is a huge GGD fan and we've been to several of their concerts, sometimes traveling for mini-getaways to someplace new. There are a few GGD songs I actually like, Better Days in particular, but any GGD song always makes me think of Mrs. Kevin, especially while we were dating and the early years of our marriage.

    And you ask me what I want this year
    And I try to make this kind and clear
    Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days
    Cause I don't need boxes wrapped in strings
    And designer love and empty things
    Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days

    In the morning when I do my 20~ mile drive to work I'll have the radio blasting and there'll be songs that take me back to other points. If any in particular stand out I'll update my response. :D

    "Little Plastic Castle" - Ani DiFranco

    In a coffee shop in a city
    Which is every coffee shop in every city
    On a day which is every day
    I picked up a magazine
    Which is every magazine
    Read a story, and then forgot it right away
    They say goldfish have no memory
    I guess their lives are much like mine
    And the little plastic castle
    Is a surprise every time
    And it's hard to say if they're happy
    But they don't seem much to mind

    (it describes me too closely :LOL:)

    When It's Time to Dance Alone
    --words and music by Michael Stanley

    I can remember
    Every little kiss
    And how you would love me
    On a rainy night like this
    (I believed) that you'd always want to stay
    (I believed) oh that love would find a way ...

    But now all is quiet
    And the phone don't even ring
    And I can't imagine
    What tomorrow's gonna bring
    (I believed) this would always be our time
    (I believed) that you'd never change your mind ...

    One for the money
    Two for the show
    Me I'm not ready
    To turn and watch you go
    Sooner or later
    I guess everybody knows
    When it's time to dance alone ...

    (I believed)
    (I believed)

    So set 'em up there buddy
    Gonna have me one more round
    And try to ease this pain that
    Like this rain keeps pouring down
    (I believed) that I could always make you stay
    (I believed) oh that love would find a way ...

    One for the money
    Two for the show
    Me I'm not ready
    To turn and watch you go
    Sooner or later
    I guess everybody knows
    When it's time to dance alone ...

    (to fade)

    EDIT NOTE: I tried to upload the song for you but the site doesn't allow mp3 file extentions.

    My Side Of THe Moment
    The Soft Addictions
    I love the sax on this album!
    My Side of the Moment
    --words and music by Michael Stanley

    Everybody's wanting
    To be in your life
    Everybody's wonderin' what it might be like
    To be with you tonight
    And they all got their answers
    But they don't know you the way that I do ...

    So, welcome ... to my side of the moment
    You see it your way, I see it mine
    Welcome ... to my side of the moment
    This time ... this time ...

    Everybody's hoping
    That they might be the one
    Everybody's praying
    That when all's said and done
    They'll be the one that you run to
    But they don't know you the way that I do ...

    So, welcome ... to my side of the moment
    You tell it your way, I'll tell it mine
    Welcome ... to my side of the moment
    This time ... this time ...

    Everybody's thinking
    That there might be a way
    Everybody's waiting
    To hear what you'll say
    They want to bathe in your wisdom
    But they don't know you the way that I do ...

    So, welcome ... to my side of the moment
    You tell it your way, I'll tell it mine
    Welcome ... to my side of the moment
    This time ... this time ...

    "Dear God" - XTC

    Dear God, sorry to disturb you but...
    I feel that I should be heard loud and clear
    We all need a big reduction in amount of tears
    And all the people that you made in your image
    See them fighting in the street
    Cause they can't make opinions meet about
    God
    I can't believe in you
    ___________________________________
    It's such a great song -a bitter, angry emotional plea that ultimately answers its own question.
    Brilliant
