appending my list:
Steppenwolf - "Born to be Wild", "Corrina", Actually anything from that album brings back memories every time I hear it.
Pink Floyd - "Dark Side of the Moon" remember hearing it for the first time summer '73 on a buddy's 8 track machine with the rear deck speakers using the trunk of his '71 Mercury Comet as a baffle, trunk open, dark starry summer night, cheap wine, bag of weed...(fill in the blanks)
My whole life has been "bent" around music. I was lucky enough to be a recording engineer at a high-end studio for five years. Heck, the caption under my class of '80 picture is "Searching For A New Sound". I have tons of songs that bring back memories (like many of you) but only one album debuted perfectly into my memory. Three freinds and I were in my '72 Beetle parked and partying by the canal. It was a new moon and we were way out in the middle of nowhere. In complete darkness we lay stunned as Scotso of WNEW NYC played the Talking Heads "Remain In Light". Not one of us spoke from beginning to end. It was monumental and we couldn't wait for it to be released. To this day I only listen to "Remain In Light" in the dark.
