Anthems - what are yours
I don't know what other word I can use to describe the kinds of songs that transcend time and space, that seem to remind you of possibilities and potential. Songs that remind you not of an experience, but of a feeling..... Almost like a soundtrack of your life.
Some that do that for me:
Pressure - David Bowie
Sweet Home Alabama
I know they're different for everyone. These are not even my "favorite songs", but songs that when I hear them move me to a different place. What others?“Within this furnace of fear, my passion for life burns fiercely. I have consumed all evil. I have overcome my doubt. I am the fire.”

for some strange reason, this song always reminds me of the summer in between 10th and 11th grade.... tlc waterfalls normally this kind of stuff isn't my thing, but that song is linked in my memory to that summer.
weezer my name is jonas reminds me of being a stupid high schooler, driving up to the ski hill after school on friday. actually, most of that cd is kind of like a soundtrack for those memories.
i'm just now recognizing how poor my tastes in music must appear...

This’ll probably revoke my music license but:

- Shadynasty's Jazz Club
ELO - Showdown
Marley - No More Trouble / Them Belly Full (Live only)
OCMS - Wagon Wheel
Digable Planets - Nickel Bag / NY 21 Theme: The Art of Easing
Tribe: Electric Relaxation
De La: 4 More
acostiga: It's funny you mention Waterfalls. That and SWV Right Here remind me of HS (specifically driving to Charlotte to visit a friend and hit up strip clubs).
Honestly, a lot of the best memories are induced by some of the worst music. Brian Adams I Do It For You (which sucks beyond reproach) always reminds me of school dances, which definitely didn't suck.

Am I Loosin
I recall when I used to come home never had a dime
But Lord I always had a good time
And I recall drinkin' wine with one of my friends
Lord, I can't go back again
Am I losin' my own way back home
Am I losin' a good friend that I've known
Am I losin' won't you tell me how I've sinned
Why am I losin one of my bets friends
And I recall this friend of mine I knew so well
It goes to show Lord you just can't tell
Now my friend won't talk to me Let me tell you why
he thinks I 've changed because of a dollar sign
And its so strange when you get just a little money
Your so called friends want to act just a little funny
They'll blame you
But I'm not the one that's here to blame
Its you my friend that's really changed
Its a shame, such a shame
Am I losin' once again
Why these things happen, Lord I don't understand
But Lord it can sure hurt a man
Why my friend won't take me as I am
'Cause your friend Lord is the most important thing
