    Do you have a particular song that you have heard that shapes a particular memory in your life?

    I recently heard the song 'Lucky Man' by the Verve, it reminded me when i was hitch hiking in Tasmania and this really pretty pommie backpacker gave me lift to the nearest hostel. I remember she had a tape deck in the old toyota and it was playing that song as we were driving through the tasmanian highlands. We didn't say a word to another whilst that song was playing .... just taking in the beautiful scenery of the countryside and the sun had just come out. I had been standing in the rain for a couple of hours hoping for a lift, so I was indeed lucky to not only get a lift, but also get a lift by this beautiful person. One of those awesome synchronicitious (sp?) moments in life. I found it a bit useless to find the words to describe the experience.

    Anyways, though i hadn't heard that song in ages, then i heard it today and it really brought back some vivid memories of that simple but amazing time.

    I am just curious if you have any memories that were strongly inspired by music, if so, describe it?

    well .. i have a song that brings back memories .. it might get a little mushy.. so guys may want to brace yourselves :lol:

    while dating the hubby (he wasnt my hubby then, we were just dating) ... i remember the first time he told me "I Love You" :oops: ... my heart pounced out of my chest ... i had stronge feelings for him as well, but i wasnt sure if it was love ... plus i wasnt sure if i was ready to settle down ... didnt want to move to fast :p

    so i kept playing and singing this song to him "give me a reason ... to love you" by Portishead ... i needed that moment ... that red light moment when it just clicked in my head and i felt it in my heart ... then it came :oops: ..... and since that day, a few yrs back .. it has never left :D </end of mushy story> :lol:

    Too many for me to begin to mention; it happens all the time..... usually it's quite sappy and romantic stuff, but a few tragic moments too...

    I always have music in my head, I love it and need it, could not imagine how barren my days would be without it. So having a song associated with a memory is more like playing back my very own life's soundtrack. :D

    Mark, Lucky Man is actually one of my memory songs too but it reminds me of my grandfather.
    For my grandparents 50th wedding anniversary i made a video of footage and photographs of their life together. i had different sections for each of them as well and the music i played over his section was Lucky Man. :)

    I have too many memory songs!

    I HATE that song by that stupid Four Non Blondes band that was a big hit in 1993. it was played at our yr 12 talent show, then at our formal and every time i hear it i cringe because at that time, my friends and I were all having these icky arguements, which we had never had in the 6 yrs we'd been friends.

    I cant even remember what the song is called but to this day, whenever i hear it, i get horrid chills and have to get rid of it no matter what!

    YES!!! Thats the one!!!! :eek:

    Darf...why is that spooky? The Verve have always been very popular here and Id imagine the same in NZ. Richard Ashcroft is a god of music writing.

    Spooky was probably the wrong term. It's just, when someone mentions them from the other side of the world and i live in the town where they started out, it seems well, kind of spooky. Which prompts the question, does anybody else on here have a top band/actor etc from their neck of the woods?
