    Songs Connected To Major Life Events

    For some reason I find somehow a song gets connected to major events in my life.

    Examples including a very nervous me listening to the Dandy Warhols "We Used To be Friends" to my first day at University. Another is Major Lazer & DJ Snake - "Lean On" on an epic family trip down the Oregon Coast in 2015.

    A song (not an official 'our song') also gets connected to most of the women I've dated, meaning there are several songs with bittersweet feelings when I listen because I'm unmarried and all my relationships have ended with disappointed on some level. I'm working to get over this emotional attachment because I want some of my favorite songs back (without the bittersweet tinge)!

    Anyone else share my sentiments?

    This will have to be in several parts.

    First time I heard anything in 1983. My dad took me to the theater to test out my new hearing. No song played on the FM radio station as he sat silently grinning in the seat next to me. I would jump occasionally at all the new sounds going through the theater to take our seats and listen to the words I didn't understand yet. Then this will always be my first song.



    First record album my parents ever let me own. I was an official Goonies nut. I would sing to this on top of my mattress jumping up and down with a hairbrush and PJ's singing as loud as I could.



    First dance I ever went to was a sock hop with my dad.


    Sailboating with my father or deep sea fishing with him on our boats.


    First boyfriend and first kiss.

    First social dance allowed, not with my dad as my date.


    Walking out on the field as the Homecoming Court with one of the Captains of the opposing Football team. 1996, when Westlake was winning the entire state of Texas in football and the male was Drew Brees


    Prom 1997


    Wakeboarding in college on Lake Travis and Lake Austin on my new wakeboard boat my dad bought me.


    The song that helped me through my first Chemotherapy.

    When my father died. It really meant a lot to me when Christopher Cross wrote to me to tell me how much he loved my dad and that they would be best friends forever.


    Surviving my father's death and stepping out of the hole of a really bad relationship with my ex. When I started to soar with my profession. Basically, I told myself I was born from a champion and the world is going to know me one way or another. Never looked back.


    The song that I share with my sister and I've dedicated to her in my head. We've come along away. She'll always post this once a year on my FB page.


    The song I dedicated to my bestie who is an ISFJ. Seriously Beaches could be written about us. We met when we were eleven.


    The last song that helped me through my 10th tumor and last *knock on wood*

    Growing up in the 90s:


    First BF (8th grade):
    Yeah, they went to school together and even played in a band together with my uncle in San Antonio. At the time when they were teenagers, my uncle was more famous than all of them including Chris, being a saxophone player and had a hit on the radio station by age 16. My uncle is now in the rock roll hall of fame and has played for loads of famous singers with his saxophone.

    I had great parents. My dad found fame in his own way. He had a brother on grand rock tours and his best friend became famous. He went to Vietnam and got the silver star and other metals. Came back and went to the University of Texas where he got his doctorates degree in engineering. I can point to countless bridges, dams, and water towers throughout central Texas and say my dad built that. Then he was good friends with a lot of Texas legislatures and was involved heavily in politics. When he passed so many people loved him. A lot of people came from all over the country to give their wishes to me. I got a letter from Christopher, George W Bush, and even ZZ Top of their condolences. He was a great guy. I learned a lot about him when he passed away. Anyways growing up, I got to meet and do a lot of picnics and social diners with some famous groups. Looking back now, I realize my childhood was blessed.

    What an AMAZING life, NIHM!!

    To be a part of a legendary experience, your father sounds like he was an incredible man!

    I always loved Christopher Cross, Stephen Bishop, Restless Hearts.. there was a sense of Southern hospitality I could feel through the music, lots of heart, lots of soul, lots of passion. I can confidently say their music touched me in profound ways growing up in the 80s. Gave me hope in trying times, and inspired me to dream.

    That's the one thing that I can say I'm proud as part of my collective American experience being born here, thousands were moved by American artists, song-writers, designers, poets, people who made an impact on our lives, even if they didn't know each of their fans directly. The energy transcends! (A special thanks to you for sharing. People like your dad are rare gems, and he'll always remain in your heart forever. I'm glad you were able to be surrounded by Great people and a prolific person for a father. Beautiful. To look out into your community, and to be reminded of your his creations. I'd be so mesmerized, everytime! What a blessing!!)

    @NIHM Wow, you've been through a LOT, I'm sure that going through chemo and losing your father have made you a stronger person in the long run. I know that at least for myself, the moments of overcoming hardships, as well as the moments of total bliss are the ones I hold dear.

    And I find it quite true, the fact that there are some songs that capture a moment in our life, and that every time you listen to them, the whole vibe and visuals come back to visit once again.

    One of my first crushes was Britney Spears. Anyway, when I was 6 years old, I used to stay in my aunt's house a lot after school, and once in a while my cousins would keep me company. I remember that I once sat on my cousin's bed, after he just came back from a trip to India. He put on MTV and said "hey look, there's your girlfriend", I think it was the first facepalm moment in my life, with many more to come. After Britney's song was over Californication started playing, and I remember my cousin saying "well, this is what I listen to". From that moment on, RHCP would become more and more central to my life and spirit, every once in a few years I would come back to this band with new understanding and appreciation. The goosebumps from this song never seem to dwindle.
    Red Hot Chili Peppers - Californication


    At elementary school, the lesson I would always look forward to was music lesson, where an old musician would play his synthesizer in the library with all the kids singing along to his songs. We learned the translation to some songs in English, and one of them spoke to my heart.
    John Lennon - Imagine



    Working first job at a mall, there used to be a music track playing on loop all the time through the whole mall, with one song in particular that I would look forward to - Sultans of swing. And then I remembered why. My father used to play it on weekends when I was little, and I would air-guitar to this song.
    Something like this:


    Driving through the rain in a military police car on the way to a patrol, it was one of those Citroen station wagons (did 3 mandatory years in the army, as all Israeli citizens do)
    Doctor Dre - I Need a Doctor


    At the last driving lesson I had before getting my license, my boss driving instructor put this on full volume.
    Major Lazer - Lean On
