You know when you hear a song, and you can just remember everything about the first time you heard the song, or a special day when the song came on? It just takes you back into that moment, and causes you to have such a special connection with that one particular track. What song does that for you? Do you listen to the song more due to the fact it brings back great memories? Every time I hear the song "Heaven" by DJ Sammy it reminds me of when I would drive through Boston at night. Then when I hear the song "The Best of Me" by The Starting Line, I think of when I was 14 or 15 and just enjoying summer vacation. I'll always hold certain songs close to me just because of the memories they bring with them. I honestly think that some of the songs I fall in love with, are JUST because of the memories tied along with them. There are some songs I listen to, that I normally would not find appealing...But the fact that they bring back glorious deja vu, makes me want to listen to them over and over.

Yes, you are right. There are songs and music which bring back all those beautiful memories, friends, places one went to, things that one enjoyed, and so on. Here is one song which I have listened to many times, and just cannot get bored with. It is "Tennessee Waltz". So beautiful. The lyric is enchanting and the waltz music is so beautiful.
