You know how some songs, and not just Dead songs, transport you back to a certain time and place whenever you hear them? Maybe you didn't even like them at the time, but three notes and there you are driving back from the beach when you're 16, or whatever.
And some songs just come to embody a particular time and place forever after.
What are yours?

THE best drag racing tunes:
"Pushin Too Hard "& "Mr. Farmer"
