Default Songs that trigger personal memories

Do you guys have any songs that whenever you listen to them, remind you of a personal memory?

Here's mine:

Bruce Springsteen - Nothing Man
It's not one of his well known songs, but it always reminds me of coming home from Houston, TX in 2003. I was in Houston for NCYC, which stands for National Catholic Youth Conference. NCYC is basically a 3 day stay in some city in the US where Catholic teen (young adults) from all over come and have a good time (there are many different things that go on like concerts, games, etc...but I'm not going to go into that too much). Anyways, our group was coming home at 11:00 at night and I was with all my friends on the plane and we were talking and I had my phones on and the last song I listened to was Nothing Man. After that song was done, I just reflected on how fast that weekend had gone and how much fun I had. So, now anytime I hear that song it triggers that memory of Houston, TX. Oh and by the way...Houston is a really nice city.

I'm sure I have more...I let you know whenever I hear them.

"I'll Be Missing You" by (then-called) Puff Daddy reminds me of my late grandfather who I was close to and lost in 2003. He's the only really close family member I've lost.

"Slow Jamz" by Jamie Foxx, Twista, and Kanye West reminds me of senior year in high school because that song was played 984365423 times that year.

"Invisible Touch" -Phil Collins/Genesis/whatever

Reminds me of the best part of high school; that brief, fleeting feeling that I could do anything. That feeling where you feel like you can go anywhere that you focus your energy on....

"Angie" by the Stones reminds me of an old girlfriend named Ann. I called her Angie before the song came out and it just stuck. I have no idea what happened to her, though.
"Sister Goldenhair" reminds me of another old girlfriend.
"For my Lady" by the Moody Blues reminds me of my wife of over 25 years.

Most songs remind me of the times they were on.


"No Diggity" - Blackstreet (6th grade)
"I'm Coming Out" Puff Daddy and Mase (7th grade)

That's all I can think of. Don't really have too many personal songs that are meaningful... unless you include "Rock Me Amadeus."
