Oh....I have instant, poignant college flashbacks whenever I hear Sting's version of "Little Wing" and Pink Floyd's Delicate Sound of Thunder album. Western NY state small liberal arts state college, no air conditioning, absolutely no internet (unless you used the VAX in one of the labs), and an odd mix of friends, boyfriends, and being a theater rat. I've always loved how strongly some music is associated with particular times in my life and how it evokes such deep memories.

Yes! Love this! I remember you could walk down the hall I lived on my Freshman year and hear various tracks of Alanis Morissette's Jagged Little Pill. I feel like that and Live's Throwing Copper were on perpetual repeat that year. I do love how music can just drop you right back into those moments from the past.
