Songs that bring back memories

I have been playing some old cd's this week, and love the way certain songs can take you back to an exact place and time. Mine was predominately from my high school era, but I'd love to see your list from an important time in your life.

Some will be able to tell exactly when I was at high school from the following:

Bette Midler - My knight in black leather
Ellen Foley - We belong to the night (that was a biggie)
Poco - Rose of Cimarron
Gerry Rafferty - Baker Street
Rod Stewart - Do ya think Im $**y
Grease and Saturday Night Fever Soundtracks

texasgirl - thats a word I haven't heard of in a while - turntable.

I still have mine, but the needle needs replacing. Not sure if they are still available.

Captain & the Kid by Jimmy Buffett ... reminds me so much of my dad and little me...
The Sign by Ace of Base ... One song that stood out at the skater's party after 94 European Championships in Copenhagen... My fave skater smiled at me briefly while we were all dancing to this song...
Saturday Night by Whigfield ... One of our favourite party song with a line dance to go with it while I was in Spain...
ParkLife by Blur ... this song really open up the landscape of real London, one of my favourite cities, before my eyes every time I hear it... It definetely breathes the life of that city!!
Something Stupid by Robbie Williams & Nicole Kidman ... Cris and I did this on Karaoke in one party we went...I ended up doing the leading melody(Robbie's part) though as Cris was singing a little off key it was great fun!!
Mon Amour Tokyo by Pizziccato 5 ... One of my best ever friend, a little ice skating boy was for some reason obsessed with Japanese Language. He found this CD and happily sang along all the time... so much so that I still remember the lyrics!

And many 80's songs I liked while growing up, Erasure, Depeche Mode, Cure, New Order, Elvis Costello, and ah, don't forget Rick Astley!!

I know there are many many more... but these are the few just came to my mind right now...

So funny that this thread should come up right now. Just the other day I was thinking of this record that I used to listed to in my grandparents house. I have no idea who it was by or even what genre of music it was, but the name of the song was "The White Buffalo" and I listened to it over and over again when I was very young. I think I wore the record out and it broke eventually. I would love to find out who it was by so I could track it down and listen to it again so if anyone has any ideas I would be forever grateful!

I also remember listening to "Our House" by CSN at my grandparents house must the same way as I listened to "The White Buffalo". Those are some great memories!

I know. The kid that was helping us, scratched his head and said " a what?" when we said we wanted a record player
When we finally found one, it had dust on it He had to really look to find the hookups that would work with the stereo we also bought. I had to have it, though and dh knew it. I have over 100 records still It's fun to listen to them, the sound is sound different from a cd or a tape.
Now, if I could just find some 8 tracks, hubby found a 8 track player

GB, I just found this... could this be your song?

White Buffalo
1976 Rod MacDonald, Blue Flute Music (ASCAP)

They say you've got to lose before you can win
they say you've got to choose before you can give in
and you've got to cut loose to get back again
and it's a long way back home

they say you've got to fall before you can land
they say you've got to crawl before you can stand
and you've got to lose it all to get what you planned
and it's a long way back home

(chorus)
and it's a long way, a long way back home
when you're standing on some place you've never known
and I might see you where the rivers flow
like me you're looking for white buffalo

they say you've got to die before you can live
they say you've got to cry before you can give
and you've got to say goodbye to get back again
and it's a long way back home

they say you've got to seed what you're going to grow
they say you've got to need what you're going to let go
anf you've got to believe what you're going to know
and it's a long way back home

(chorus)

so I say to you farewell for we will meet again
in the hottest flames of **** I could only call you friend
and when you hear that final bell, do not ask whose round you're in
till you've found your way back home
