I have way too many songs that stick out and bring back at the weirdest times the memories associated with those songs. I can hear a song and the tears come, or the giigles, or what ever was there. I cant believe urmaniac had said Ace of Base...OMG.....another around that time was SNAP......When I was growing up I had to listen to this one record we had...on the paper in the center was the brightest swirls and a colorful turkey...could have been a peacock for all i know though. Years later did I only find out that it was ABBA......the list could go on and on......

Thanks for starting the thread though....now Ill have to have my songs going all day!!!

Petshop Boys - Go west : from the time I left school...
REM - almost everything... REM is the music for me when I feel down...
Robbie Williams - Feel : great song performed at his 2003 Tour.. it was soooo wonderful...
Reamon - Super Girl : Franks & mine song..

I would say sometime in the late 70's (1977 or 1978).

Yey Tanis!! Wasn't it too far off that period when Andre Agassi was saying in one of his Cannon CM, "Attitude is everything"??

I think my neighbour must have been tempted to do the same thing with my Ace of Base CD, but they restrained themselves because they owed me one, I hooked up their cable to their VCR and TV for them before

Wow - so many great songs and memories here.

GB - I did a quick search on my music program and came up with 2 possibilities...
Ted Nugent - Great White Buffalo
Rin Tin Tin - The White Buffalo
Probably right out of left field, as I've never heard of the song, sorry.

Mentioning grandparents also brought back another memory...
When I was about 8 or 9, my (late) Grandmother gave my Dad the Bing Crosby - White Christmas album for Christmas. No sooner was it unwrapped, than it was on the record player. It was on repeat for about 4 loops before being turned off for the day.

Now whenever I hear any of the songs from that album, the tears well up (for sentimental reasons). It makes for embarrasing Christmas shopping at the mall. lol.
