What music takes you back?

    Thursday night on Youtube, I listened to Donna Summer's "I Need You" for the first time in almost 30 years. Half of me wondered how I could listen to such stuff (it's not much on words), while the other half was swept back in a trance to the Frat House in D.C. when I was 18. The music was in my head all the next day and represents a vibrating fog in which my disembodied spirit is bound to dissipate for eons until remembrance or boredom urges it along.

    What music brings you back (and to where)?

    My favourite song during the most fun, care-free time in my life.

    "It's Raining Men" reminds me of ShawnTO. icon_surprised.gif

    Really, I'm like a walking episode of Ally McBeal...any given moment of my life has a soundtrack.

    When I was 17, a friend and I drove out from Ohio to spend the summer in the Rockies - about 40 hours each way - with an 8-track player and two tapes: Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon, and Credence Clearwater Revival's Greatest Hits. By the end of the trip I was sick to death of every song (and every time I was about to fall asleep I heard all those goddamn clocks go off). It was years before I could listen to either of those albums again - but I own them both on CD now (in fact, Dark Side was the very first CD I ever bought). They'll be with me forever.

    When I was a teenager living just outside San Francisco, I was so lucky to be able to see live - bands like Black Sabbath, Yes, Chicago, Pink Floyd, Moody Blues, Traffic, Led Zeppelin, the Doors, the Grateful Dead, the Allman Brothers, Jefferson Airplane - guess I'll stop! There were great places like Winterland, the Filmore, Great American Music Hall, the Cow Palace and Stern Grove in Golden Gate Park, just to name a few. My buddies and I were lucky to get to see and hear all these and more, and when I hear these bands on cds now, I'm reminded of my teens. What a time.

    LOL, I thought you said 'takes you aback', anyway I'll post what I originally intended to:

    Liz Phair's new album after she broke up with her boyfriend or hubby I think.

    It was TOTALLY different from her last songs.

    To give you an idea, one of her songs was entitled "Hot White Cum".

    This is from the girl who sang "Why Can't I".

    As for a song that takes me back in time: Anything Third Eye Blind, Goo Goo Dolls, Matchbox Twenty, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Linkin Park etc. those stuff we listened to in High School. Especially Nine Days.

    Just last night I felt nostalgic so for the first time in a good couple of years (I don't know why!!!) I listened to Radiohead's older albums (The Bends, Amnesiac, Kid A) and WHOA I forgot just how damn good they are. They really are the modern day Beatles. Paul McCartney really needs to collaborate with Thom Yorke on SOMETHING before Heather Mills kills him.

    I think the thing I love is that regardless of what music is like now, if they had released any of those albums now instead of 10 or so years ago, they'd still be absolutely fantastic. I love how on Amnesiac they can have Like Spinning Plates, this otherwordly electronic-sounding song, then right afterwards this jaunty, near-jazz songs with trumpet and flute (I think) and stuff, and yet it still fits. Oh, I'm gushing icon_razz.gif

    Honestly, if you haven't listened to Radiohead's entire discography in order you're seriously missing out, it's a musical journey. As corny and lame as that sounds -_-
