Which song takes you back to a time when you were truly happy?

The song that takes me back to a happy time was the song "eternity" by Robbie Williams (takes me back to the first boyfriend I had)

Many 80's songs remind of being with my mom during the good times.

Must be a lot of 80s kids here cause those are the ones that take me back too. The Flame, turn the radio up and hungry eyes by Eric Carmen. Reminds me of my childhood friends.

The album "Hysteria" by Def Leppard has a special meaning for me, as I still remember listening to it the evening before I was starting high school (was rather anxious about that).

I couldn't even name one song that takes me back. They all do in one way or another. Oh, I guess Spirit in the Sky because Howard Levin asked me to dance at the sixth grade dance with him and the only ones dancing were the teachers :eek: so we went out there and really cut the rug and showed them how.

The only rock/gospel song with a fuzz guitar interlude by a Jewish guy. :)

Got to love the lengthy guitar solo at the end...

Back to that time when my innocence hadnít yet been trampled underfoot?

I could post so many different songs but this one always makes me smile. I think about a day when I was 15 and dancing in a parking lot with a small group of my friends after band practice. (:

The theme song to Disney's "Main Street Electrical Parade!" I spent my entire childhood growing up about a 30 minute drive from Walt Disney World and I remember when I was a little kid and got separated from my family along with my cousin who was only like 13 or 14 herself during the parade and it was so funny -- drove my mom and aunt to tears practically! But that was back in the good old days when crazies weren't lurking around every corner.

Here is its revival after they briefly moved it to Disneyland Paris/Eurodisneyland.

This one reminds me of when I realized just how much I love music and the birds, and the music of the birds:

For me, it is my favorite song of all time, "Whipping Post," by the Allman Brothers Band.

I was fortunate to have grown up in Macon, Georgia, and had just started college there

at Mercer University, at the same time they'd just signed with local label, Capricorn

Records. While at Mercer, I became involved with the Student Union Board, which was

responsible for booking all the concerts, entertainment, etc. That point in time also

marked the beginning of my serious "Cheech & Chong Phase," which peaked in graduate

school at Appalachian State University, in Boone, NC. While there, I also became involved

with their Student Union Board as well. What can I say, except maybe, "Party on Garth." :D

U R Welcome :cool:

That's a rare one! Disney no longer sells it in the United States out of fears it might be considered racist.

Piano Man and A Horse w/ No Name. The songs themselves aren't really special, but they remind me of being with people that "were" special to me.

I was a blithe and happy spirit until I was 32, when my world fell apart .....so just about any tune from 1955 until 1982 or so ......I have always loved music, come from a family of musicians, but all I got was a good ear .....no talent for playing an instrument or singing ....curse of my life actually ....

....there's few things I enjoy more than noodling around youtube and letting the songs that pop into my head lead the way .....I love the old rock an roll, and that will lead me to the "English Invasion" ....which slides into the FM radio songs of 66 and beyond ( AM radio tunes ...not so much ....I was way too cool ( snicker) for bubble gum music or pop music ) psychedelic music was another fave....then I moved to the country above San Francisco, and met a bunch of country and western musicians, and porchful of bluegrass musicians...and some musicians who you can't really put into a box ...they keep jumping out and playing something else ....

....I have been lucky to know many professional musicians from most of those eras and fields.....so after all this ....I think the music that made me happy is the music I heard played by my many talented musician friends .......

OH look ! here's one now ....a tune I never get tired of, and it showcases 6 of the most talented musicians ever to walk the planet ....you simply cannot stay sad when you hear this .....

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_94i_DWCW1g


so I guess by stumbling around ....I found the song that takes me back to my happiest times ....I was the photographer for the band, ( at about 2:40 or so you'll see a group shot, I took it in a car repair shop near Fantasy Records, and then hand-colored the B & W photo) .....

.....this is a rolicking group of Celtic fiddle tunes, and 3 of them played the fiddle ...and when all 3 were fiddling around ...the audiences would be standing on their seats screaming....when David is not fiddling, you'll hear one of the best and fastest flat pickers who has ever lived .... that's one note at a time, with a pick ....whew ....and another musician to take note of here is John Firmin ...who plays a light and lithe penny whistle ....and my one time boyfriend Lance Dickerson, is the drummer who rolls along underneath them all

this is a live tune ....recorded at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco ....and listen to the audience at the end ....you'd never guess that this is a pretty small venue, maybe 300 ? .....

...the 6 of them manage to sound like an orchestra ....a bluegrass orchestra ....

when I was at my nadir, knowing these guys had been my friends was one of the few things that was balm to my racked soul .....
