Which ONE song takes you back to your childhood?

Post by Mancman » Wed May 14, 2014 2:53 pm

With this being a retro forum, I'm guessing most of you guys are fond of reminiscing about your your childhood, however, aside from the games which song takes you back?

For me it has to be Peter Gabriel's 'Sledge Hammer'

No other song stirs the nostalgic emotions like 'Sledgehammer'
It brings back such vivid memories of times spent in the park with friends playing cricket and footy or sitting in front of my green screen 'CPC' for hours on end.

The music video especially, every time I see it brings such a warm glow inside.

Would love to hear which song stirs the nostalgic emotions in you guys :D

Beaten to the punch with some Antmusic, though I'll go for that particular title instead.

If we're going back as far as our teenage years, of all the tunes that bring back such great memories I think it would have to be this:

If we are going back even further, into single numbers, it has to be:

...though I have this copy of it:

Then again, I could quite easily change my mind in a few minutes! :mrgreen:

Not so much a favourite, but certainly one that transports me straight back to my early years whenever i hear it. This song was the first i can genuinely say i have a memory of:

Weezer - Buddy Holly

I was listening to the Blue album in the car to work this morning. Such a classic album and it's now 20 years old! :shock:

:D That's the first record I ever bought, too. I bought it on its week of release and it went in at No.1, which was a very rare event at the time.

Ooh, LOADS :D

I know the thing says "ONE song" but there's too many for that.

Peter Gabriel's Sledge Hammer's definitely one of them.

Then there's this lot:

I can't really think of any one song, but it would probably be something by Queen as my brother bought all their albums. I'd forgotten some of the album artwork though, especially this one.
