Kim Wilde - Kids in America;  always makes me think of being over at my girlfriend's house in San Diego, senior year of high school.  I'd pick her up for school every morning, spend a half hour at her house.  That's when I first heard that song.

Eagles - Hotel California.  Driving my Mustang in San Diego, nicely buzzed on some Apaculpo Gold Thai.  Came over the top of a small hill, the setting sun was a big golden globe, that song was playing.  Pure paradise.

Def Leppard - Pyromania album.  The drummer in our band loved that album, pretty sure it was the only tape he had in his car.  Brings back memories of driving around Minneapolis in his old Monte Carlo, with his car stereo amplifier that made a buzzing sound that rose and fell in unison with the car engine.

Def Leppard's Hysteria album reminds me of working as a janitor in a local tourist trap when I was in high school. It was after hours, and we all had tunes playing in our respective areas. One guy was playing this all the time, which is actually how I discovered I like Def Leppard. Must have been 1987 or 88.

Ragdoll, by Aerosmith - My last year of high school, late May or early June. It was 1989, the school's 50th anniversary, and all of the students were gathered in the playing field for an aerial photo. We were spelling out EDSS 39-89. One friend of mine (actually more of a friend of a friend) who was kind of a conceited doofus from a rich family, spent the whole time circling the streets around the school in his brand new red Mustang convertible, blasting this tune. The photo is still on display in the school foyer, and I've noted the cars of other friends in the parking lot, each with stories of their own, but come to think of it, I've never looked for the red Mustang on the street. The song still takes me back to that day though.

That reminds me of another friend, not rich or conceited but still kind of a doofus, who seemingly played played nothing but Roxette's Joyride in his car for weeks. It was not long after the album came out. When I think of that song, I think of one summer evening. He had recently bought a Pontiac Grand Am, and drove it everywhere at high speed with the tunes blasting. A few of us were sitting in our local watering hole one Friday evening, not much was happening, and somebody decided we visit a popular country bar about half an hour away. So, we all pile into this guy's car and take off. We covered the half-hour drive in about 15 minutes, doing over 160km/h (96mph), and he just kept playing Joyride, rewinding and playing it again, all the way there and all the way back. Incidentally, I was driving out of town a couple of months later, and spotted the Grand Am upside-down in the ditch on a tight curve, so the driving did eventually catch up with him. At least he wasn't hurt. Anyway, Joyride reminds me of that drive, a bunch of funny things that happened that night (I still have a souvenir in fact) and the Grand Am in general. I've never deliberately listened to the song, not being a fan of Roxette, so I seldom hear it. But when I do, I'm always transported back to one really memorable night.

Takes me back to the time when I got barred from the same pub twice. This song was playing in the background both times lol. First time I was accused of snorting cocaine (mistaken identity), which is crap, 'cause the clown man has never done drugs! Second time was for fighting in the toilet. Some dudes from a band I bad-mouthed tried to jump me in there, so I lamped one of the scrawny b***hes right in the teeth. Before you know it, I had about 3-4 guys on me shouting at me to get out and I went like a gentlemen.....only to start more chaos in the street.  Lookingup

This one always reminds me of the time, to my shame, that I'd slashed my wrists and the police had bashed the door in to stop me. I ended up getting the crap kicked out of me by 3 police officers and then remember getting thrown in the back of an ambulance.

This was a big tune when I first went to college. It was on the radio every time we drove home from OSU and back. Lots of time spent drinking in bars and playing Tempest arcade game. If it hadn't been for my closeted gay roommate being a pain, I'd almost want to go back to those days.

I recall as a young DarkSider my brother (who was at work at the time) asking my mom to go pick up a 45 record.  It wasn't this one but I insisted that it was and we came home with it.  My brother wasn't too disappointed though.

"My Name Is" by Eminem

I was about 15, and this was a summer jam that everyone was singing when we got back to high school.

"The Beautiful People" by Marilyn Manson

I was a young, dumb and angry kid and for whatever reason, he provided the soundtrack for a little bit.

"Summer Girls" by LFO
Small | Large

Boy band from the late '90s.  Main reasons I liked it were: A.) it was a funny song, and B.) a girl I liked in High School mentioned it and was impressed I knew all the words.  We got tighter for a while.

Is it wrong of me to say that I really like Sweet?
Why would you care what anybody else thinks of what you like?  But, yeh, it most certainly okay to say you like SWEET; they were great.

I think I was in 3rd grade at the time I first heard this.  I recall roller-skating at the local rink to this song.
