Is there something you associate with a particular song?

Asked by shpadoinkle_sue (7188points) March 23rd, 2010

I can’t hear Van Morrison’s “Brown Eyed Girl” without thinking about that scene from Fatal Instinct where Armande Assante is wearing women’s clothes. I can’t help it. Is there a movie or event that you associate with a certain song? One you can’t help but remember when you hear it?

I associate the song “It Ain’t Me, Babe” with a certain incident on the city bus. Once me and my friend just started singing that song in two-part harmony on our way home on the bus…much to the annoyance of the other riders.

I associate certain songs, and also certain smells, with certain periods in my life. Just as smells trigger memories, so do songs for me.

The Verve – Lucky Man…..reminds me sooooooooo much of my ex boyfriend and living at a particular house. Love the song, but cant listen to it anymore with out crying.

Yes, music has always been a large part of my life. Probably thanks to my oldest brother being a DJ, I was always being sent new tracks & bands & compilation tapes (shows my age). Consequently most of my memories can be triggered by one track or another.

I associate nausea with everything that spew’s forth from the gob of Celine Dion.

I forget the name of the song, but I crashed my car listening to it. Whenever I heard it after that, I thought of the accident.

No One Will Do by Mary J Blige reminds me of the first time my boyfriend and I got physical. I can’t hear those opening bars without getting all goose pimply!!!

The song Starlight by Muse reminds me of a girl.

I associate Van Morrision’s Brown Eyed Girl with my first love and all the fun we had.

Joni Mitchell’s Wish I Had a River I Could Skate Away On with being at school in England and homesick right before the winter break.

I associate The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald with a shipwreck.

I have an entire playlist on my computer full of “songs I associate with being on planes” because of an extremely long flight I had coming home a few years ago.

That’s about it, though.

Isn’t She Lovely played on my answering machine for months, following the birth of my daughter.
It still reminds me of how blessed my wife and I were that day.
