    Purple Rain... wow, that does bring back memories. I saw it on HBO, I think, a few years after it came out.

    I feel embarrassed (well, technically) to admit that the first album I ever bought was Barry Manilow's Greatest Hits. I loved "Mandy" and "I Write the Songs."

    There is also the surreal moment of going to my first prom in a limo, curled up with my date in the backseat, and this nutty song came on -- "I Wanna Be a Cowboy [and you can be my cowgirl]." I can't say I loved the song, but I will never forget that moment.

    Middle school dances (and now we're talking about 1980 here) would have never been the same without J. Guiles Band "Freeze Frame" and "Centerfold"; Journey's "Open Arms" (and I still like to crank up "Separate Ways" in the car, my kids will BEG me to do that, they love it too); Air Supply's various ballads; "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap."

    Billy Joel is another favorite of mine. "She's Always a Woman to Me" and "Just the Way you are" lingers in terms of slower music (and I like a lot of his faster stuff too)... although my favorite song by him overall is "Lullaby."

    But here is a song only the CCM heads would know, off Amy Grant's "Straight Ahead" LP: "Jehovah." I don't know why, but every time I play that song, it evokes the internal senses and memories of how I felt as a teenager. I remember laying in the dark in my bed, even after I left for college, and playing that song in the dark for some reason musically just resonated with me. It's more the music progressions and sound than the lyrics per se, and I know "better" songs musically and lyrically ; but it resonates with who I was and still am on some level.
    "Hey Capa -- We're only stardust." ~ "Sunshine"

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Do you remember Keith Green?

    This song still speaks to me:

    I was wondering, since we are so close in age.

    While I don't know the song you listed, yes, I know Keith Green well enough. (Especially because I'm a pianist/rhythm keys player, and Keith also did piano.) "Song for Josiah" meant a lot to me at that age... lots of pathos, all things considered.

    Heard this one first 3 years ago, but it still doesn't bore me.

    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.

    ^ Jen, I admired the clarity of his passion, you can feel he believes what he is sharing That song is the last one on a cassette I had (still have I think), seems like it was a trim from a recording session, a little incomplete and I like it for that too.

    --- on another note, how about this one, decidedly non-Christian:

    Grease Lighting

    I even remember pretending to do the dance in primary school. I still like a lot of the songs from Grease.

    The Power Of Love Huey Lewis

    This is the song I associate with first thoughts of romance and girls.
