Thanks @lucas for the great idea! I love it when a song can evoke such strong memories. Not in chronological order, just as inspiration hits. Ok, this is really going to get deep...

    Scarlet Begonias- Sublime
    17. First boyfriend. First real love and first time spent lying on the couch for hours on end taking, holding hands and listening to music. He was a blonde surfer boy who introduced me to Sublime. Was a great year of parties and fun!

    Romeo and Juliet- Dire Straits
    Same boyfriend as above, but as it got more intense. That feeling when you love someone much it hurts. He used to play this song for me. I really don't miss the pain and intensity of young love!❀

    Wannabe- Spice Girls
    Dancing in my friends living room with the 6 girls I grew up with. We were 13 and had the absolute best time. My memory is pretty bad but I can vividly picture us jumping around singing every word to this bloody song!😊

    Silhouettic and Broken Bones- Birds of Tokyo
    The moment when I realised I had become a part of what would continue to be my group of adult best friends. Not the kids I grew up with, but people I chose to like and love. A five car road trip down the east coast of Australia, stopping along the way for ridiculous adventures, and culminating in the pyramid rock festival. Birds of Tokyo played on NYE and I remember being crammed into the mosh with my 15 best friends, arms around each other, singing every word at the top of our lungs.

    Diamond Sea- Sonic Youth
    Not one specific memory associated with this song, but teenage me loved it. So moody☺

    My Prerogative-Bobby Brown

    Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic by The Police
    When I hear this I'm transported to my 1964 VW Bug driving US 101 north out of Santa Rosa Calif in a February rain in 1982 headed to visit my then first serious girlfriend.

    Rattlesnakes by Lloyd Cole and the Commotion
    Hearing this now reminds me of (repeatedly) driving to San Diego's Ocean Beach in summer 1987 with my then girlfriend/future wife in her Toyota, where the cassette tape lived all summer, to walk in the sand together and hold hands while watching the sun set over the Pacific.

    The Beatles - "Birthday"
    When I was little my dad would wake us up on our birthdays by BLARING this song through the house! It was thrilling when we were young and annoying as f*** when we were teenagers (but secretly nice πŸ˜‰)

    So Far Sway from Me by Dire Straits
    Driving from the beach to Columbia South Carolina with my BFF after just too much weekend. I was so glad the weekend was getting further and further away from the both of us.

    Georgia on my mind
    June of 2004, Ray Charles dies and this song is everywhere for a few days that should've been the final straw. They weren't, but this song always reminds me of the road I should've taken RIGHT THEN. πŸ‘

    We listened to this song when adopting Owen 10 years ago. The words were perfect for our situations-"I don't regret this life I chose for me."

    "Blue" Joni Mitchell's 4th album from 1971

    In the Air Tonight - Genesis (Phil Collins)
    I would play this song every weekend night in high school while getting ready in my room before going out to a club with friends. It always made me feel like *that* would be the night something crazy would happen: like falling in love or kissing a cute boy. Mostly the kissing thing. The embarrassing thing is that I would always do the air drum solo (I have no idea how to play drums). But that song has the best build up/release of any song I know. Thanks for the ask, @angela3950!
