Top Ten Songs Which Instantly Spark a Memory

Britgirl
There are some songs which, when we hear them, completely by accident, instantly transports us back to a particular time and place in our lives. Those songs that stop us dead in our tracks for whatever reason, good or bad.

The Top Ten

1 It's My Life - Bon Jovi It's My Life - Bon Jovi
2 Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now - Starship Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now - Starship
3 Love Me Like You Do - Ellie Goulding Love Me Like You Do - Ellie Goulding
4 In Your Eyes - George Benson In Your Eyes - George Benson
5 Sky Full of Stars - Coldplay Sky Full of Stars - Coldplay
6 Here I Go Again - Whitesnake Here I Go Again - Whitesnake
7 Rehab - Amy Winehouse Rehab - Amy Winehouse

Ya know, Beege, had formed an opinion of this gal based on tats and lifestyle (which was not altogether in error) before ever bothering to listen. After she passed, saw a gig she had done with a maybe five-piece band, all jazz and blues. Was completely blown away by her awesome talent. Later saw an interview with her "progressive" jellyfish father, and it was abundantly clear that this had been a massively over-indulged, totally ungoverned child set on a path to the inevitable. Such a waste.
