Tuesday's Question: What Song Brings Back Nostalgic Memories?



Hello, and welcome to Tuesday's Question. Today's question is, well, I know you read the title, but I'll ask it again, and answer it: 

 What song brings back nostalgic memories?

 For me, it's I'm A Believer by The Monkees, which is odd because they were not my favorite band, although I did love them.

I'm A Believer pulls me back to a time in my life when the world was simple and friends were plentiful. When I was seventeen our lives and town were different; living was still and easy, yet loud and joyful. But the main reason the song brings back nostalgic memories is because my sweetheart at the time hid his Monkees 'eight-track' tape from me because I constantly played the song.
When I think of him hiding his tapes it makes me laugh, because he taught me how to play the song on the guitar, a deed I think he probably regretted. 

I hope Tuesday's Question's, and this question will encourage everyone to begin conversations by responding to each others comments. Plus, it's a way for all of us to have fun. But, if you are more comfortable reading comments that's fine too.  Alright, now it's your turn: What Song Brings Back Nostalgic Memories for you?

"Yesterday" first made popular by the Beatles always makes me cry and so does "Don't Get Around Much Anymore" sung by many people over the years, most notably, Tony Bennett. "Blueberry Hill" by Fats Domino is another one that makes me cry with memories. Jeez, a lot of songs bring back memories. This is a hard question to answer for that reason.

Yes, I had trouble narrowing it down too. But, you can have more than one, in fact the more the merrier. I too, I love all of the songs you listed, and they bring back memories as well.

Have a great evening Jean, and thank you for visiting. :))

Words-

Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light

She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free

For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well

Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination
