Triggered by the thread about gated reverb drum sounds, I played the third Peter Gabriel album this morning. That was released when I was a senior in high school and as I listened I was immediately transported back to 1980-81. I remember singing along loudly to I Don't Remember as I drove to our family cabin late one night after work. I recalled deciding that Family Snapshot was about JFK and Lee Harvey Oswald (and found myself sympathizing with the lonely protagonist - what high schooler hasn't felt themselves misunderstood and wanting to be recognized for something, anything?) In a student council meeting Games Without Frontiers was running through my head and when the principal looked at me, I blurted out, "If looks could kill, they probably will." He asked me what I said and all I could embarrassedly mumble was, "It's just lyrics from a song." We've done threads before about this I know, but it's unique to music to evoke such powerful specific memories. I can connect TV shows or movies or even paintings to certain things, but it's not as evocative or recurrent. Family Snapshot also shows how timeless music is, since the events described are occurring now with nauseating frequency and no one really wants to tackle the subject. A 4 minute pop song 40 years ago is as accurate as all the news articles and books today. Any specific music memories that you can share?
