This thread is for music that makes you feel nostalgic. Post yt links to songs that make you feel nostalgic (even if you don't actually have memories with them) and maybe what the song reminds you of or makes you think of.

I'll start…
This song reminds me of my earlier childhood (as far back as I can remember - 7yrs) but especially of my old school. I went to a private christian school in the booneys. This song just makes me think of that time. It reminds me of when things were sort of structured..having to tuck our shirts in…all the girls wearing these dresses that went down to your ankles that would seem way out of fashion now. Getting pulled to the principal's office by my ear with my friend. Going around the merry-go-round. Going to the top of the slide and looking out at a massive field with super high grass that seemed to go on forever and a green and orange forest that seemed to hug the school itself.


I was a weird, homeschooled kid growing up, and I had a portable cd player.

among my favorite cds were Avril Lavigne, Queen, the Dixie Chicks, Black Sabbath, Eminem, and NWA.

It was really weird and all over the place, my dad probably shouldn't have made me mixes of the last two when I was 7…


That's actually pretty cool that you were homeschooled, and that your dad showed you those records. I'm sure it more deeply informed your musical tastes, whether you appreciate it or not.

As somebody who listens to "Whatever's good" be it country (Merle Haggard), black metal (Gorgoroth), rap (Lil B), Classical/ Neo-Classical (Beethoven, game OSTs), etc., I meet plenty of fans of each of those genres who think the others listed are completely without merit, and it's somewhat sad.

What I'm listening to right this second:


You know, for awhile I suppose it did. I took pride in 'eclectic' tastes. I was a /mu/ hipster for awhile. I've become much more easy going since then. If it sounds good, I listen to it.


>I was a /mu/ hipster for awhile

Glad I never sunk that low. Toby Driver is about as /mu/ as I got, but I found him randomly through Soulseek way back when. I should listen to In the L…L…Library Loft again. I really liked listening to that one in the dark.


Reminds me of teen me and what was it like in the 00's
The 00s were so sifferent and I miss the friends I had then but I'm sure all of them moved on and are all better.


Typical but man I love it


Some nu-metal is starting to become nostalgic for me.

Damn you have some balls to do that as your first song in public lol. I love it, but even at my level I hesitate to do cute/favorite songs like this.

For me, this whole album evokes nostalgia, because I played it on repeat while I played an MMO with my best friend and a few others. I live with that best friend now, and the MMO wasn't great, but even as a kid I found the whole thing relaxing. I wish I could still get into MMOs but the internet as a whole has changed so the social aspect of them seems to be totally gone now.
Anyway, the album:

TV, mostly Nick, was my only pastime until Pokémon came out in 1998, so probably from around 1993-1998 all I did in my free time was watch television and read paranormal books from the library. Only within the last few years have I really finally dug into the music from that album, which I only knew one song of, or popular tracks from the artists. Turns out I don't like Enigma, but Enya is great.



I believe I had pretty much the same album as you, although I had a different version to most people, the one I had was called 'Moods II', but the track listing is almost exactly the same as ''Pure Moods'. My version had a different cover and started with 'Orinoco Flow', unforgettable because of the sudden way it would start. My favourite tracks were 'Sweet Lullaby', 'Return to Innocence' and 'Nirvana'.

I had this in 1997 after just moving to New Zealand with my family. I would stick my head out the window and just breathe in the smell of the air which would fill me with all sorts of feelings, one of them being this 'yearning' feeling as if there were all sorts of amazing things taking place elsewhere that I was missing out on or something. I would start crying sometimes listening to 'Return to Innocence', I tried re-creating that experience recently and it was amazing to be pulled back to that time.



I also have a separate memory associated with the music video for 'Sweet Lullaby'. I was in Australia before going to New Zealand, I'm not sure what year this was - sometime before 1997, and we had a TV channel called SBS which mostly aired 'world' movies and TV, and I happened to be awake one morning to catch their 'sign on' video, which was the music video for 'Sweet Lullaby', and it would end with this guy almost whispering in an odd voice "The world is an amazing place. SBS". After seeing that once I would try to wake up to be able to see it again, but the sign on was at like 5am or something and it seemed like sometimes they'd just go straight to programming rather than have the video. It was especially awesome for a young kid who had never been overseas to see this, and the song is wonderful on its own: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lIF5EEneWEU

As for Nick, the 'The Adventures of Pete & Pete' theme brings me back to this period in 1996 when my parents relented and got us satellite TV, and my younger brother and I just spent as much time as possible watching that. Brings back a carefree childhood feeling.



Reminds me of a time that i didn't exist and a country i have never been to.


MiniDisc recorded Music made on the Playstation



Can relate. It really is strange feeling, the country that doesn't exist for 30 years is still all around us.


10 years.


It also holds a special meaning on top of it all as well. I played it alongside my very first crush which was a girl who worked at the bookstore at the mall where the arcade was. She grabbed my hand and dragged me to the arcade when I told her I had never played DDR yet. I wasn't really nervous about the music part in public. I was more nervous of being really bad at the game in front of people. I ended up getting pretty good and played a lot during the 2000s until my health started to get worse and I became really out of shape. By then I had to travel quite some distance to get to the closest DDR cabinet as arcades completely left my area.

I last played Aura Kingdom and returned to RuneScape with OSRS. I lost my Aura Kingdom account due to inactivity, which it was pretty much a dead game and I quit playing. Then OSRS I lost my account for reasons I still don't understand and lost A LOT of GP and time that I put into the game. Anyone here who has played RuneScape knows how much of a grindfest it really is and how much time you can accumulate without realizing. I'd love to find another MMO to capture me, but I don't think that's going to happen. I've been reverting back more and more to older games. I do enjoy getting on Fightcade and doing Netplay whenever that's possible though. I know it's been forever since both of our posts. But I'm going to check out that link and listen to a bit of that album.


I've listened to this before, I completely understand how you feel.


Liking that album so far in. Good tastes.


…and he looks at me… …and i look at him… …AND HE LOOKS AT ME… AND I LOOK AT HIM

Interestingly I didn't play many of the sonic games as a child, but everything about the series feels incredibly emblematic of childhood to me, and playing the various games as of recent has strengthened those feelings. By far the song that I think represents this to me in those games is probably this one, something about the whistle at the start, the guitars, and the vocalist gives me these feelings of being 7-10 and carefree. The delivery of the chorus especially seems to land for me with its self assuredness and confidence.
the pillows' music gives me this feeling of childhood summers as well. Their music just in general gives me a feeling of peace, like everything will be okay eventually no matter what. It's been an emotional carrier for me.
The music video here is important, I feel as though it was almost intended to invoke these feelings. This song gives me a lot of nostalgia for my last 2 years of high school and all that comes with that, the general atmosphere of being in high school, playing tf2 off a laptop at the library because my home connection couldn't handle online games, and just. everything about that time. It felt nostalgic then, and I listened to TH a lot for that reason, and now it also feels nostalgic for that time.


It doesn't remind me of a specific event, just brings me back to a time when things were happier that I can't return to. That's probably heightened by the fact that Dolores O’Riordan passed away.


I've always found idealism really good at making music that's nostalgic the first time you listen to it… both the general vibe, and especially how recorded sounds and simple stories are incorporated into some albums.

>>470 i definitely have memories of playing kirby games too, they have some great music

I don't understand why this is so nostalgic for me




I used to listen to this as a kid jumping around my room acting like I was fighting as if I were Liu Kang.


This is an unused song from the game Suguri, one of my favorite shmp doujin game franchises from the 2000s. Whenever I hear the soaring dream trance I feel like I'm happily soaring above the clouds and exploring a beautiful level they always wanted to make but never got around to doing. It might have been the best level in the game.




Actually this melody feels more nostalgic: https://youtu.be/xJHlI4yszkc



The Boys Are Back in Town. Well, classic rock in general sounds nostalgic now since its so old, but this song with its lyrics and melody especially.
