Grateful Dead

Instant Flashback Songs

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?

I'll go along with that Stardancer

The sun is shining it's a new morning
And you're going, you're going home

Baker street takes me back to the days of my youth everytime I hear it.

on a dark desert highway...

Hotel California evokes very specific images of the summer I turned sixteen- driver's license, Dead shows, and my first real girlfriend who was as much a teenager as I was.
