Weezer's second album reminds me of summer '02 when I started going out with my ex. Indeed it kinda reminds me of her.

Anything Mr. Bungle reminds me of the end of uni 1st year which was fantastic.

Moonlight Shadow by Mike Oldfield and Touch Too Much by AC/DC remind me of Mrs. T which is obviously a great thing.

Records that remind me of good times include:

PPK - ResuRection (I heard this for the first time in October 2001. Listening to some very average mix on the radio, this track comes on. Soon as the breakdown comes in, I stopped what I was doing to listen. Such a classic moment.)

Dark Globe Feat. Amanda Ghost - Break My World (When I first heard this, I was at the height of depression. It was at its absolute worst. On hearing this, I broke into tears. At that point, I realised I needed help. When I'm down, I still listen to this record, it helps keep me going)

Illicit Feat. Gramma Funk - Cheeky Armada (A bootleg with Groove Armada's "I See You Baby". You know the one "I see you baby, shaking that ass, shaking that ass...". Just a pure party record for me from a few years ago. Love it!) :heart:

Just a Day by Feeder reminds me of being seventeen and dancing in a local nightclub with my friends (when we all got on).

Basketcase by Greenday because it's a classic lol

Rise by Gabrielle for some reason I find it unnervingly soothing. It came on the TV after I'd necked a pack of paracetamol... Frightening yeah, but in an odd way it reminds me that I'm still here...

Black math by White Stripes was the opening song to their latest gig and I got knocked around like shit!

Feel Good Inc reminds me of when my mates moved in pretty much right nextdoor to me earlier in the year, and I'd go over every night and just bong till like 5 in the morning. Good times.

Pretty much every FFAF, Taking Back Sunday and Jimmy Eat World song reminds me of my girlfriend. As does Beast and the Harlot by Avenged Sevenfold and Digital Bath by Deftones.

Some random dance mix of California Dreamin' it's well mint, reminds me of my holiday last summer :D I think that was the "Royal Gigolos", as they called themselves. They did something called the 'Tek House Mix' of California Dreaming. Is this the one? (http://mp3.juno.co.uk/MP3/SF164161-01-01-05.mp3) Loved this tune on hearing it, kinda reminded me of the Benny Benassi 'Satisfaction' record, it's the same kind of sound.

And stargalaxy, yeah, it was like that, but it was the original vocals, that kind of mix though. GOD DAMN I CANT FIND IT ANYWHERE. It was reeeally like that but it goes 'eh oh oh oh oh EH! california..' I can't explain :/ ffs. That was just a sample of it, the full vocal was on the rest of the track. I'll try and find one for you.
