What song did you hear today and what was the memory it tweaked?
When I hear the Fleetwoods sing "dom, dom, dom do dom a dobby do" I remember my first kiss and Palo Duro Canyon.
When I hear "Taking care of Business" I remember painting the 16' ceiling before opening a sandwich shop in the 70s.
Love to hear the memories your oldies but goldies invoke.

I love this question ...my mind plays a soundtrack for every event in my life.

"Johny Angel" ...was my first crush (his name was Johny)

"True love never runs smooth" was my first broken heart.

"If I had a hammer" was my first experience of teenage angst chafing against gov.

"She loves you (yeah yeah yeah) was climbing onto the roof of a car in a successful effort to wave at the Beatles passing by ...on my way to their concert. Yes George waved at me and laughed.
Lots more but that will do for now.

There was a time when I was a senior when the Beetle's had 8 songs tied for first place on the Top Hit's List.
I am trying to remember what they were.
She Loves you
I Wanna Hold Your Hand
I Saw Her Standing There
Could I get some help here?
I could Google an answer, but it's more fun to remember.

I don't remember his, but Buddy Holly's crash. Were they on the same plane?

I found web site once where you could download many hundreds, if not thousands of the old country music (mainly from the 40's and 50's), and it was free. I downloaded over 300 of the songs. I went back to it later to download more of them and the web site owner had been threatened by a lawsuit if she didn't shut it down. I got many songs of Jim Reeves, Eddie Arnold, Hank Williams, Roy Acuff, Tex Ritter, etc. Many of them, I had never even heard before. I had a catastrophic hard drive crash and lost much of that collection. I was devastated. Many of those songs can't be found anywhere anymore. I still have maybe 150 of them, but I lost many more than that.

Have you ever hear, "The Old Lamplighter", "Little Buckaroo", "Old Shep", "Snow Peak", "Steal Away", "Adios Amigo", "The Auctioneer Song"? Those are some of my favorites that I still have.

OK, now I'm worthless for the next few hours. I'm playing them.

I kick myself every day for not backing up all of those wonderful old songs.

I can remember being a little girl and running to the radio everytime "how much is that doggie in the window" was on. That is a pleasant childhood memory. Also, ran to hear "here comes santa claus".

I loved one called, "The Three Bells" by the Browns. I can still close my eyes and see a small mountain village, with a little white church building.

Don,
My Aunt Annabell could sing the Cowboy Auctioneer song.
I bet you can still find those songs, they will ju$t co$t you this time.
I remember some of those.
Since you are both in Texas where I was reared, LOL
Do you remember the "J-day is coming!" campaign. When they introduced Jax Beer?
Charlene my sweet GM called it Here comes Santy Clause. Smiling
I remember "Get a job", Personality, Alley Opp, and singing "In the Still of the Night".

"All the chapel bells were ringing",
In the little valley town;
And the song that they were singing,
was for little Jimmy Brown.
And the little congregation,
Prayed for guidance from above;
Lead us not into temptation,
Bless this hour of meditation,
Guide him with eternal love.

I'm listening to it as I write.

I remember many of those songs you are discussing. But I am going back into my pre school years (50's) and remember playing (was the record a 78?)Rosemary Clooney songs on the record player: The Land of Hatchy Malatchy & Little Sally 1 Shoe. All childrens songs. I found those on cd @ Amazon last week.

google you favorite songs and have a ball. Pandora an u tube are there for you. PP and I spent lots of time listening to our old favorites via computer. We also googled maps and went to all his favorite places. It was so nice to see the school he went to, the ball field he played on, the church he went to. We even went to his grandmother's farm house. We also went to the cemetery his parents were buried, the bar his Dad loved,and drove the streets of Manlius and Syracuse New York. We always wanted to go there with him but never took the time. Now it will never happen. It was how we spent one of the last good days. A week later he was gone. Yes this has been a missing him bad day. I remember when we dated movies were a quarter and cokes were a nickel and we still pooled our money to go. lol Those were truly the good ole days. My song of the day. Elvis of course Are You Lonesome

I seem to have some connection to the Tennessee Waltz. I'd hear it on radio when I was growing up. Also Crazy by Patsy Cline. Strangely enough, I seldom like country & western stuff, however.
