What song reminds you of your dating days?

Asked by Headhurts (4477 points ) October 18th, 2013

Was listening to music this morning, and two songs played that were out when I were dating my s/o.
Robyn – With Every Heartbeat, and
Alicia Keys – No one.

Just thought it would be a cute question to ask.

Robert Plant’s Big Log

When I was dating my wife, I was driving an hour to see her, and this song was always on the radio at the time. The line “My love is in league with the freeway” also fit.

Geez…I dated in Junior High, High School, College, Post Divorce, Pre 2nd Marriage.
I’d have a list a mile long. That spans almost 30 years minus the 7 years of my first marriage.

I don’t think I can pick just one.

I do not know any songs about rape.

Anything but Louis Armstrong, but especially A Kiss to Build a Dream On. I was listening to Armstrong when I met my significant other, so his music is meaningful to the both of us.

Old Grateful dead and Led Zeppelin, I was a 60’s and 70’s kid, my ex was a die hard Zeppelin fan waaaay back when, I was the dead head hippie girl. :-)

This song reminds me of the one that broke my heart, although the song had to have come out in the 80’s not 1994 like the video says. Corny I know, but at the time it was intense.
I almost felt guilty listening to it!
The Eagles Hotel California and Steve Miller Band Fly like an Eagle remind me of the time.

This question has had me in a melancholy mood all morning. Although it was 36 years ago, I have been reliving the moment when my first love broke up with me. We were driving south on Jefferson Street in Eugene, Oregon and that song was on the radio. We were stopped at the light on 13the street. I think it was raining, I was crying and I had never ever felt that kind of pain. Ugh.
I know in retrospect the whole thing was a gift, but I have been reliving that moment, with that stupid song stuck in my head all morning.

A lot of my dating was spent in dance clubs.

@Pachyderm_In_The_Room Not silly at all. That’s an exquisite song and one of my own favorites.

It’s Only Make Believe By Elvis. I spent a several years with one woman in the 80’s. We would go to parties and split up to look for someone else to party and go home with. But we usually came up empty and went home together. I did love her so and asked her to marry me but she only loved me as a friend. We are still friends and I now love her like a sister.

It’s Now of Never by Elvis. Tossing and Turning by Bobby Lewis. Acker Bilk doing Stranger on the Shore. Amazing that Mr. Bilk’s instrumental topped the Billboard chart in 1962.

Still dating, but I’m gonna answer anyways.
Goodnight Moon by Go Radio.
I Like You by Man Overboard.

Beat It – Michael Jackson

The Stroke – Billy Squier

Willie And The Hand Jive – Johnny Otis

Well, I started dating at age 16, and I was 34-years-old when I got married. That’s quite a culture span.

So, what do I consider to have been my dating years? I guess the early times, when it was all new and I still cared about popular culture.

“Stairway to Heaven” (it seemed mysterious and romantic)
“Color My World” (it was played at every school dance and prom)

This song comes to mind…

Joan Armatrading Love and Affection

And 13 years later:

Clannad Closer to Your Heart

My ex fiancée was a huge fan of house music and especially of deep minimal, so not long before we broke up, he was 24/7 listening to this song Gus Gus – Arabian Horse All the time it was playing, and to be honest I kinda like this song too, but it’s too painful to listen to it for me.
