My fave song when I 15 years old.
ALWAYS ON MY MIND (Elvis Presley)

Maybe I didn't love you quite as good as I should have,
Maybe I didn't hold you quite as often as I could have,
Little things I should have said and done,
I just never took the time.

You were always on my mind,
You were always on my mind.

Maybe I didn't hold you all those lonely, lonely times,
And I guess I never told you, I'm so happy that you're mine,
If I made you feel second best,
I'm sorry, I was blind.

You were always on my mind,
You were always on my mind,

Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasn't died,
Give me, give me one more chance to keep you satisfied,
If I made you feel second best,
I'm sorry, I was blind. You were always on my mind,
You were always on my mind.

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.
Isn't Bing GREAT? I got that one and Elvis Christmas from my mom when she passed. I got a few more, but those two are just classic Christmas to me.

not necessarily my all-time favorites, but definite memories........

"Addicted to Love" by Robert Palmer reminds me of my friend Danny. I miss dancing with him.

"Every Breath You Take" by the Police reminds me of a romantic obsession that lasted too long.

"Under The Boardwalk" by the Drifters reminds me of teenage summers at the 'beach.'

"Margaritaville" reminds me of Memphis and my many Parrothead friends there.

"Born on the Bayou" by CCR reminds me of the first time I heard that song, blaring out of the speakers at a record shop on the Sunset Strip.

Another CCR song, "Fortunate Son", reminds me of the Vietnam era. (Also, "We Got To Get Out of This Place" by the Animals.)

"We'll Meet Again" by Vera Lynn (I think) reminds me of all the WW2 GIs and our allies in Britain and their girls.

Bryan Adams' "Everything I Do," from "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves" was the theme of our junior prom. As corny as it sounds, that's when I got my first kiss and as much as I hate the song, I still kinda like it, it takes me back.

I'm with my fellow Kansan, Kaylinda! Patsy Cline, Slim Whitman, Sons of the Pioneers, Bing Crosby, Ella Fitzgerald all remind me of my grandfather, and sitting on the porch singing along- he could play ANY string instrument and loathed any song with drums in it hahaha! Bless his soul though, I listen to EVERYTHING now....

Funny how you can almost guess everyone's age on this post!! Ironically, I found my most memorable song years after it was written. I'm 50, and it was around when I was a teen, but it started having meaning as I got older. "Freinds and Lovers" by the Beatles. I love the line, "In my life, I've loved them all." Since I've moved so much in my life, there are so many friends (and, yes, at one time lovers) who I've left behind. This song really expresses that to me.
