There are some songs that just bring me nostalgia and make me think of my childhood. What are some of yours?


there's probably lots of phineas and ferb in here











"Somewhere Out There" from American Tale :p

Richard Marx
R.E.M.
Classic Mariah Carey
But then y'know, me listening to this and jamming out to Kids Bop...





Also those songs you didn't realize had dirty stuff in it until you were older.



I feel like the songs put in the OP make me feel old, despite only being 22, because I know none of them XD

However, this one never fails to give me extreme nostalgia, despite having hated it with a passion when I was in like 5-7th grade when it came out? This is the best song ever lmao



And also, because obviously




EDIT: I thought of more I'm sorry XD



My ultimate jam
See but the thing is Crow, is that you're childhood was done not too many years before mine was. XD So it's so funny because I was so close to have been able to watch those shows, but I missed them. XD


HOW COULD I POSSIBLY FORGET....



It's just that good that it was put on a 10 hour loop. K?
90's and early 2000's country music brings back a lot of memories in the car with my mom. Like, Shania Twain's 'Man I feel like a Woman' or so many, many things!

Love Bill Nye! Remember him on local Seattle TV on a comedy show that came on after Saturday Night Live called... Almost Live. And Bill Nye was Speedwalker.

Now, on to some Nostalgic Songs .... more like Nostalgic Albums. Having a sister five years older than me, she introduced me to some music from her album buying that has stuck with me through the years... these six albums in particular:

The Rolling Stones - High Tide and Green Grass
Meet The Beatles
The Doors
The Doors - Waiting For The Sun
The Byrds - Mr Tamborine Man
Donovan - Greatest Hits
Anyone remember Beakman's World? He was like...a whakier Bill Nye. Lol.

It's not linked to a memorable song, but Bill Nye reminded me of that.

It was soooo deliberately ridiculous! Good memories.

Also for nostalgic songs I will add...

Pretty much EVERY SINGLE 80s AND 90s SIT-COM THEME SONG.

(What?? They were good! Lol)


Theme songs:

- French Prince of Bel Aire

"This is the story all about how my life got flipped, turned upside down..."

- Family Matters

"It's a rare condition, this day and age, to read any good news on the newspaper page...."

- Perfect Strangers

"Standing tall, on the wings of my dreams. Rise and fall, on the wings of my dreams..."

- Growing Pains

"Show me that smile again.
Don't waste another minute on your cryin'..."

- Full House

"Everywhere you look, everywhere you look. There's a heart. A hand to hold on to..."

- The Jefferson's

"Movin' on up, to the eastside..."

- Out of this World

"Would you like to swing on a star?..."

- LaVerne and Shirley

"Give us any chance, we'll take it,
Read us any rule, we'll break it,
We're gonna make our dreams come true,
Doing it our way..."


Yep. Sit Com theme songs. Nostalgic. Lol
So a moment of nostalgia came along today. I was on my way home from work and I was listening to 3RRR 102.7 FM when the DJ plays the live 21 and a half minute album-side cut of Rare Earth's 'Get Ready'. It was hard enough to get FM radio to play it back in the day... so hats off to Woody McDonald and his radio show The Cave!
Basically anything from the 90s and early 2000s. I still end up smiling every time I hear "Who Let the Dogs Out" because every school dance ended with that song, and it's just... it's just there.
Imagine by John lennon. Working class hero by John lennon also.

Any 90's grunge. Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, etc. People will claim they all sound the same but I am here to tell you that's a bloody lie. :P

No, they don't sound the same. As someone who saw Nirvana in a Seattle bar in the eighties before they were on the radar of fame, I can say that the 'grunge' bands were indeed unique. Sure they had that gritty dirty guitar sound Neil Young used in his Live Rust tour, but the styles of the bands were quite different. On that night I saw Nirvana, they were drunk and arguing and the crowd was hostile because they were crap. I didnt think they would add up to much based on that night. I'm glad I was wrong and they did. The Unplugged show is quite awesome! Rest in Peace Kurt.


And a nostalgic band to me is Fleetwood Mac. Here I present three very different phases of the band's history.

Fleetwood Mac Original- Oh Well
Fleetwood Mac Revision One- Hypnotised
Fleetwood Mac Revision Two- Rhiannon

The only constant in these three revisions is drummer Mick Fleetwood and bassist John McVie. It almost like they are three different bands, but each brings nostalgic memories to me.

I'm glad someone understands. My husband criticizes my taste in music and claims that it's all the same. (Yet I'm the one who introduced him to Scandinavian metal bands. Take that!)

I would have loved to have seen Nirvana in the 80's. It's interesting. You know, I can actually imagine them all drunk and arguing on stage. That must have been amusing (if not frustrating because, well... time and possibly money spent).

I've only heard a few of Fleetwood Mac's songs, and I know nothing of their history. Thank you for sharing.

Because of You - which holds a deep spot in my heart because it's exactly how I feel about my 'mom'.
