    Default Share a favorite song that's stayed with you all these years.

    This one still gets me. I loved it when I was just a child, but now that I'm older and I've lived it, it means that much more.

    I remember listening to it in 1976 with my little transistor radio, in my little backyard that was my world, and loving it for some reason I didn't understand yet.

    And I still love every note and every word.

    Listen to it... [YOUTUBE="rBllejn5fVA"]Reelin in the Years[/YOUTUBE]

    Edit: Oops, there's already a thread like this, but DAMN, listen to that guitar work! And it's 30 years old. Awesome.

    Don't know why it's so evocative ... but it brings back 1986 every time ...

    ive only really been into music since my early teens, and i was super strong in my faith. I remember my grandmother had recently died and I was very religious. Relient K was one of the bands i listened to on heavy rotation in that era. Although over the years my tastes have changed, every once and awhile i will stumble upon this song and it gives me chills and puts a tear in my eye everytime. it does a terrifyingly good job at applying to the two life changing events of my life.

    ^^^ That's what I'm on about.. how it speaks to you.

    This song came out when I was 12, and even then it spoke to me about my first crush. The lyrics still break my heart every time. It just really captures something about the rueful feeling of not being cool and thinking the great girls have too many options to pick you.

    Summertime from Porgy and Bess

    I was hooked on this as a child and picked it out on my baby Honer accordion when I was 5.

    I have several different versions on my iPhone but the most unusual is this version fm the amazing Janis Joplin

    YouTube - Summertime - Janis Joplin/ Big Brother & The Holding Company

    more traditionally louis Armstrong & Ella Fitzgerald

    YouTube - Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong - Summertime

    I just love the Blues

    I have about 700. Where should I start?

    I was in love with Prince when I was 7. I've always liked this song.
