« Thread started on: Dec 1st, 2014, 05:19am »

Hi there



I was thinking about this the other day and wondered what music always brings back memories of your childhood when you hear it?


Mine are


The Beach Boys - Sloop John B.

The Adventures Of Robinson Crusoe TV Series (main theme).

The Banana Splits TV Series theme.


The Beatles - Fool On The Hill.


Mason Williams - Classical Gas.



So what are yours folks?

The New Christy Minstrels singing" 3 wheels on my wagon"(not sure if that is the correct title. My mum used to sing the "Davy Crockett" theme to me when I was little.

Others include "Double Deckers","Casey Jones"

Also,my dad used to finish off with "Skyliner" at the end of his night when he played at the local club as the resident organist

First piece of music I recognised was Fleetwood Mac's Albatross. I used to run up to the screen and say water, as the video they showed on TOTP was of the waves of the sea.

A couple that come to mind:

Stevie Wonder's "Mon Cherie Amour"
(it was the first song I ever liked or can remember expressing a great fondness for)

The opening theme to the TV show "Jonny Quest"
(When I introduced my kids to that show years later on video, I always got a little adrenaline rush every time I heard those opening drum beats)

I have to list albums here:

Genesis - Selling England By The Pound
Genesis - And Then There Were Three (side B only)
Whitney Houston - Whitney (side B only)
Joe Walsh - But seriously, folks
Walter Carlos - Switched on Bach II
Art of Noise - Daft
Flim & The BB's - Further Adventures of
Steve Miller - Born 2 B Blue
The Sheffield Track & Drum Record
Thelma Houston & Pressure Cooker - I've Got The Music In Me
Emerson, Lake & Palmer - Emerson, Lake & Palmer
Blonker - Fantasia
Hans-Hasso Stamer - Digital Life
Donald Fagen - The Nightfly
Level 42 - The Pursuit of Accidents
Janet Jackson - Control
The Alan Parsons Project - I Robot (and other albums)

There's still a lot more... From most of these one or two songs stand out that used to be my favourites as a kid but I would usually listen to the albums as a whole, not least due to the fact I had them all on cassettes.

Lots of those for me too, but what really gets the nostalgia going are those songs that I've only heard a handful of times over the past several decades....

Strawberry Alarm Clock - "Incense and Peppermints"
The Monkees - "Last Train to Clarksville"
The Surfaris - "Wipe Out"
The Chi-Lites - "Have You Seen Her?"
Badfinger - "Day After Day"
Three Dog Night - "An Old Fashioned Love Song"
The Mamas and the Papas - "California Dreaming"
Carly Simon - "You're So Vain"
All of Jesus Christ Superstar

cool
