...to some of the best days of your life. Now we could all probably list hundreds of tunes, but I asking about those few that strike a deep chord, give you pause and almost hypnotically take you there for no other reason than it just happens in a surreal type of way. Dancing Days by Led Zeppelin came on the other day and did just that to me. Here are a few others that have that effect on me -

Glad - Traffic
Roundabout - Yes
Angry Eyes - Loggins & Messina
Theme From a Summer Place - Percy Faith Orchestra
For Yasgur's Farm - Mountain

Kinda funny you should mention Dancing Days Hank, I heard "The Ocean"by Zep last Thursday, and it took me back to days of beers, blunts, women partying with friends, not a care in the world...playing in early R&R bands...Life was so good..That entire Houses of the Holy album does that to me...

And of course there are too many others to begin to list...

Mainline Florida. So many driving trips down there, and adventures, good and bad (eff you, Bunnell FL!). The drive was often part of the fun, and all this song lacks is the clicks of highway expansion joints.

Some of the most fun nights of the last year have been with current pop music being played so. That or the hits of the late 90s or early 2000s. Whenever I listen to Derek Trucks Band I think back to the show I saw in 2009.

Good call on Suite Judy Blue Eyes! That always takes me back.

Plenty of others. Lots of 80's songs (some cool, some not so cool) make me think about college and my frat. Free Bird makes me think of high school dances. Rock N' Roll Doctor and Nicolete Larsen's Lotta Love reminds me of my days at the Cask N' Cleaver restaurant.

Here's to good times past, present, and future!

Great topic BTW!

I am in such a musical wasteland at work....I talk music and often see vacant eyes staring back at me. They want to respond...but can't. I see them reaching and trying; but they miss the mark. 'Rory, who? Is he the guy that used to smash watermelon's? What ever happened to him?'

Such is life. Makes me all the more happy to be allowed to ride this train that Lana and Rowland built! I hope that they realize the wonderful place they created....Love em to death.

In shortóbecause the list is *very* long*ó AM-Radio Hits from the late 60s - 70s. A bunch of them take me back to a lot of different "places". Been listening to a lot of it recently; Love it.

Pretty much the same with me. WNEX, the local "hits station" played a wide variety of music. You might listen to Johnny Cash, then some Motown, then some blues, then some acid rock, and then some folk music.
