Oh, I just thought of another - it's and oldie but a goodie - well, in my opinion at least...

"Feel Like Makin' Love" by Bad Company

I could listen to that song ALL day!

Here goes:

Anything by Paul Simon. My mom used to play his songs on long car trips.

Also, anything by The Police, for the same reason!

"Connection" - Elastica. I was seven when I first heard this song....good times!

Anything from Green Day's first album.

Anything from Weezer's first album. Geez, 1994-1995 was a great year for music!

"End it On This" - No Doubt. When I was in fifth grade, I stayed up late listening to this, and played it when I was in the car with Danny.

"Lovefool" - The Cardigans. Winter Break, 1996. That hadn't been a good year, but I remember having fun when I hear that song.

"Steal My Sunshine" - Len. Summer of 1999.

"The Way" - Fastball. 10 years old, eting Moosetracks ice cream with Danny and his girlfriend while listening to this song.

Anything off of The Smashing Pumpkins' "Adore".

"The Longest Time" - Billy Joel. I loved this song when I was little...weird, huh?!

"Ana Ng" - They Might Be Giants. This song just makes me feel relaxed and happy.

"Til My Head Falls Off" - They Might Be Giants, because it's hilarious!

"Bizarre Love Triangle" - New Order. I just love this song.

"Touch Myself" - The Divinyls. I love this song. My brother (not Danny) gave me an accapella (singing without accompanying music) CD that a group at his college performed, a version of this was on it. I listened to this all seventh grade!

That's all I can think of right now...

"Only in dreams
We see what it means
Reach out our hands
Hold on to hers
But when we wake
It's all been erased
And so it seems
Only in dreams..."

"To the beemobile!"
"You mean your Chevy?"

This one is tough, I know I'll forget a lot of songs, but here are some:

Counting Crows - "Mr Jones" == When I was about 10 and getting into listening to music, I can remember this was the 1st song I recorded from the radio on tape

A couple by Roxette, like "Sleeping in my car" == Reminds me of my 5th and 6th grade, that used to be on the radio a lot

All Take That albums, ever since the start, about 1991 or so, until 1995... and the 1st one Boyzone released == when I was a "real" teenage girl hehe

Oasis - "Whatever" == the 1st song from Oasis I got to listen, it came on a compilation of the year's hits, and I had no idea of who they were, but fell in love with the song... this would become my favourite band for many years after

Blur's albums: "Modern Life Is Rubbish" and "The Great Escape" == When we got Cable TV I used to watch MTV Europe nearly all day, and that was how I got to know the bands I'm into now, and I remember Blur being one of those bands, the songs that used to play more were from those 2 albums, so I became a big fan of them

Pulp - "Common People" and "Disco 2000" == same reason as above, they were played a lot during the time I was addicted to MTV, and they symbolize, along with Blur and Oasis, my "getting into britpop" phase, which lasts until this day hehe

Savage Garden - "I Knew I Loved You Before I Met You" == this song is one of a few that remind me of my 1st boyfriend

Oh, I'm getting tired of thinking hehe .... I could add dozens more but I won't bother you with a list of songs hehe

Oh, I just remembered two more:

Now all I have to do is get "Fancy" downloaded, and I'm set.

I'll Make Love To You - Boyz II Men
Kiss From A Rose
Incredibly awkward grade eight dances. And painfully sappy music to boot.

Greenday's Dookie. The whole thing.
One friend would put this on every time I came over to her house after school (grade nine/ten). And I never knew why.

Let's Talk About Sex - Salt 'n' Pepa
Grade six? Very much something to giggle over. Sex! Ewwwwwww!!

That Sister Hazel song.
Last summer? My partner's sister liked it and played it so often that I cringe every time I hear it.

The Christians and The Pagans - Dar Williams
Arrggghhh! If the Wiccans play this any more I just might burn them!

Whip It - Devo
I miss you, Ratt.

Alanis Morissette
Teen angst in a jewel case. Early years of high school.

The Hustle - Not sure who
My best friend and i once sang this (even though it doesn't really have any words) to another friend who being depressive and attention-seeking. I think she might still be damaged by it.

Last Kiss - Pearl Jam
Two summers ago. With a really geeky guy awkwardly flirting.

Wake Me Up Before You Go Go - Wham
Not even sure when, but it's nostalgic.

Mr Roboto - Styx
Domo! Reminds me of late nights with a good friend.

"People Are Strange" -- doesn't matter whose version. My first semester of college, I hung out with a beautiful group of goth girls, and we'd sing it while walking past the Field House, which is prime Frat Boy gathering ground. Aaaah.

"Will You Love Me Tomorrow" - Carole King. A girl named Laura taught me this song at church camp.

"Love Of A Lifetime" - Firehouse. First dance at my first prom.

"Time Of Your Life" - Greenday. Last dance at my senior prom, and my partner Erik's prom.

"Lovesong", "Halo", "Lovecats", "Hot Hot Hot" - The Cure.

"One Tin Soldier" - I just bust out singing this one sometimes. Learned it my Junior year on choir.

And, "California Dreaming" by The Mamas And The Papas. When my choir went to a national competition in New Orleans, we sat in a restaurant in the french quarter singing it. The people around us applauded when we were finished, and some of them threw us quarters. Aww yeah.

How can you not like muffins?!

Out of my Head.

GREEN DAY - Time Of Your Life
SIMPLE MINDS - Don't You Forget About Me
LEN - If You Steal My Sunshine
LED ZEPPELIN - Stairway To Heaven
DEVO - Whip It

Also when I was young, I remember hearing my parents listen to ABBA, Peter Gabriel, and Mike and the Mechanics, so those songs make me thing of the past.

"I like a man with rock in bum."
-Tom Green
