Every Song a Memory

I don't know about y'all, but music has always been a big part of my life.  I have always loved listening to the lyrics of songs and often times associate certain songs with things from my past.

When I was in college, one of my roommates would always play this when her boyfriend was over. 
I love some Sarah, but hearing her CDs over and over again with the muffled sounds of sexy time, got old real quick.  To this day when I hear this song, I think of Jess and Ryan.

Two years before I got married, I had a brief whirlwind of a relationship that was really doomed from day one. I remember the guy calling me one night telling me to hurry to a radio station to listen to the Randy Rogers Band song.  The Kid Rock one happened to be on the radio only when we were with each other.  They both quickly became "our songs".It actually took me awhile to be able to listen to these songs again but they are just so good that I couldn't let the past relationship ruin them!

Kid Rock's "All Summer Long"

When I was 20 I moved to TN and left behind a sort-of boyfriend.  He called me one day and said he couldn't stop listening to this song:
At the time I'd left Dallas for TN so this song by Alan Jackson ("Dallas") was very fitting.  

My freshman year of college was spent in Canada.  I was introduced to all sorts of music I'd never heard of before.  I listened a lot to Portishead and Ani DiFranco...especially these two songs:
"Wandering Star" by Portishead

"Untouchable Face" by Ani DiFranco

There are so many others songs that remind me of different times in my life and I always love hearing them because it just brings the memories flooding back...  What are some songs that bring back memories for you?!
