The most nostalgic song of all time

Post by vinyl master » 15 Jul 2018 02:34

I recently read this article...

https://www.villagevoice.com/2018/07/04 ... -all-time/

...and it got me thinking...

What is the most nostalgic song of all time? What songs leave you guys breathless? What songs stop you in your tracks and utterly devastate you? Which ones have you longing for simpler, easier, better times?

I'll admit that I've had some rough spots over the last few years and with the loss of my dad this year, I've been listening to some of his favorites as well as stuff that reminds me of him or of the hole I find myself in now...

Some songs just allow me to meditate and to think on a deeper level... :-k

I'll give you a few examples below...

Those are just some of the tunes that leave me speechless...My mom has taken it harder, listening to a lot of 90's country...Stuff like this...

My dad also loved Daniel O'Donnell (and even got to meet him twice!) and I've been also listening to some of his stuff at times, as he was my dad's favorite...

So, my question to you is this...What songs have you thinking about people in your life that you've lost? What songs have you meditating on the important things? What songs bring you right back to those fun days back in high school? Or maybe not so fun? What songs give you a chance to stop and pause the world for five minutes?

I'd like to know the ones that do it for you guys! =D>

When I was a lad of nine I first heard "In My Life" from Rubber Soul. While it stood out and I understood they were words of reflection, it took years for me to fully realize its gravity. Still a song that gives me pause when I'm searching for meaning and solace or just when it's cued in play.

Not a bad choice there, citizenarcane...I might also go with "Let It Be", inspired by a dream that Paul had about his deceased mother...He talked about it here...

This could be the most nostalgic song for me to my childhood. This was my mother’s battle cry against her cheating, absent husband. She and her friend, who was going thru the same thing, would play it over and over, prance around, stomp their feet, wave their fingers and what not.

“Oh no, not I, [-X I will survive...”

When I lived in Scotland, I would just go out into the hills/mountains and drive.

This song reminds me of that so much...


Then there's also Mark Knopfler's Going Home (Theme from the film, Local Hero - watch this if you can, very funny).

Those are just my starters...
