I fly US Airways a far amount, and I always connect in PHL. Whenever my flight is on approach to PHL and I start to see the city out my window, Elton John's "Philadelphia Freedom" plays through my head. I frankly think it might do well as theme music for the airline, but that's just me.  Wink

It's weird I know, but I'm curious to see who else has these little "trigger events" that remind them of a particular song. So, out with it!


Better to be nouveau than never to have been riche at all.

"Song 2" by Blur is for right after I've found out I passed an exam. If you know it, you know why.  Smile

Much of "Californication" (the entire album) by the Red Hot Chili Peppers reminds me of barbecue afternoon-evenings in the garden of one of my Brazilian host sister's friend's house.

Then there's "Velvet" by a-ha which used to remind me of the book "Politika" by Tom Clancy, simply because I listened to the album while reading.

Røyksopp's album "Melody A.M." reminds me of the seminar I took while doing civilian service ("Zivildienstlehrgang" or so in German). I was in the middle of nowhere for a couple of days with very little to do and a bunch of barely post-pubertal yobbos to hang out with, so the obligatory "good book and good music" I had packed were quite welcome.

And then there's a whole bunch of Brazilian music that reminds me of all kinds of things, but that list would take far too long to make.

Wasn't that just a Solo project by Paul Waaktaar? (If so, then don't ask me how I know...)

Seems so, although it is on "minor earth | major sky". The album cover says "Lauren Savoy / Paul Waaktaar-Savoy"... yes, I have an a-ha album.

Oh, and how did you know?

Yeah, that's what I thought. It was made in the time when the three weren't working together. Morten Harket had a few hits of his own during that time. "Spanish Steps" I believe was one of them. Fairly good song.

I told you not to ask...  Wink

The songs were around back when I still listened to the radio... And my memory is good. Hehe.

You're not as weird as you think. I have this exact same thing going on. I tend to apply certain songs to certain events through out my life. Some range back from being being relatively young!!  Smile

I associate songs with memories, especially but not always if I am listening to the song when the memory is formed. This means that whenever I hear the song again, I also remember the memory, which is quite cool as it's normally travel related and adds to my chilling out when I listen to the song. Imagining I'm still on holiday somewhere really nice.

I know exactly what you mean. Many songs or albums represent something to me. If I play A Perfect Circle - Mer de Noms, I think of the last months of upper secondary...

A Perfect Circle - 13th step ---> Basic training in the military.
Epica - Phantom Agony (And After Forever - Deceipher) ---> Chrsitmas time in the air force 2003.
Nightwish - Once (And Therion - Lemuria/Sirius B) ---> Summer 2004
Leaves Eyes - Vinland saga ---> Summer 2005

And so on, I could go on forever...  Smile

Try "telling people to not do a thing makes them do it", that sort of thing.  Wink You made me ask, I made you think of penguins.

I was going to reply "Middle finger, my ass!" but then realised it might be misunderstood. Or so.
