Songs

I got an email at work today about a team summit we're having that included this:

"Music evokes fond thoughts and memories, similar to what travel does for our customers, their customers and ourselves. So please send me your favorite song and the artist that performs it, that evokes great thoughts, memories and feelings for you."

They've asked us to send several submissions to have a good list. The first thing that popped in my head was the song "Bubbly" by Colbie Callait. That song is so mellow and relaxing that no matter how frustrated, stressed, or upset I may be, when I hear it I just get calm and happy.

I thought this was a really interesting assignment and would like to hear what other people think of when it comes to a song that evokes great memories and feelings. What song would you send in?

Clocks by Coldplay. Definite all time favorite. The piano is so beautiful and so is Chris Martin :)

"The Way I Am" by Ingrid Michaelson. Super cute, mellow song. Plus it has the best song lyric of all times..."I'll buy you Rogaine, when you start losing all your hair." Makes me giggle everytime I hear it.

"So Close" by Jon McLaughlin

"Boogie Shoes" by KC & the Sunshine Band

This is a big item for me: Songs for every purpose. Songs which bring fond memories are great, but I've also got an arsenal of songs which put me in a mental place for the painful things I do. Offspring "Self esteem" and Evanescence "Bring me to Life" are two on the list.

As for the happy thoughts, U2's "Beautiful Day" has special meaning.
