Do you have any songs that take you to special time and place? Is it specific or ethereal?
I’m listening to Night in White Satin - The Moody Blue right now and will listen to FM - Steely Dan next because I started with Rikki Don’t Lose that Number - Steely Dan because took me to a special place and time and that may or not have existed.
These are part of a handful of songs that take me to timeless place that doesn’t have special day, place or memory of being with someone. I have those too, like anything from Cream takes me back to the 60’s, Blondie and the Pretenders takes me back to the late 70’s and so on. And I can roughly remember year and place I first heard them. But the songs I listed above and others take me to an ethereal place. I think part of it is because they’re mostly dreamy in their own way.
Here’s some off the top of my head.
White Bird - It’s a Beautiful Day
A Whiter Shade of Pale - Procol Harem
In the Beginning - ELP
Tuesday Afternoon - The Moody Blues
Ride My See Saw - The Moody Blues
(I’m) Just a Singer in a Rock ‘n’ Roll Band - The Moody Blues
Bridge of Sighs - Robin Trower
