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.
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.
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:

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:https://diversesystem.bandcamp.com/album/works

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.
