Songs That Take You Somewhere

Songs have a way of attaching themselves to times, places, and events in our lives.  A few minutes ago GHR was play Jewel Akins hit, The Birds and the Bees.  Hearing that song takes me back to a street I used to walk on when visiting a friend.   He and I played ball together so I would stop by his house before heading to the ball field. 

Before Jewel Akins we played "Close to You" by the Carpenters which has to be one of the all time great date songs.  As I'm writing this we're playing "Space Race" by Billy Preston which takes me back to my days at WSGN in Birmingham, AL.

What about you?  Where do the songs we play take you?
