Everyone has a few songs that have defined their life in one way or another. Songs that, when you hear them playing, instantly take you back to a time and place.
Among those songs, one stands out in particular for me(Frank).
I landed at JFK for the very first time, with the sound of Bob Dylan's "Lilly, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts" ringing in my ears. It was defining moment in my life, and to this day, each time I hear dear old Bob's wonderful song I get goosepumps.
Just wondered if anyone else had a song that they associated with an experience, and what it was.

Hey Ikabud. I have had this experience. I mentioned this story several times before. The first time I ever heard Mike and the Mechanics "The Living Years", I called my father in tears to tell him how much I loved hime. Even though we never fought and got along, it was a very defining song for me. It was a song that seemed to bring us closer.
Music is a sense of communication, it is a way to express the best of yourself to others, especially when you don't come across like a Hallmark card.-Lyle Mays

I don't know how many people have heard of Wendy Matthews out there - she's a singer from New Zealand. Anyway, she sang this really beautiful song called The Day You Went Away. The first time I heard this was in a car, on the way home from my friends house, after I found out my Pa had died. It's a sad song as it is, but now whenever I hear it I freeze.
I'm a maverick, I don't play by the rules you choose to live by.

"Forever Young" by Rod Stewart. It's my husband's favorite song, and we've been together a Long time now, ever since we were very young, so I think Charlie's attitude will always be "Forever Young"--Not that we're Old Foggies now, Please!!! But the way you look at life can make you old, Before your time, if you let it!
