Songs that immediately shoot you back to your childhood


#1

I was about nine when this came out


Freaks my nut out to this day if I ever hear it


#2

My dad always played this in the car. He was a giant Bowie Dan, and loved it all- his favourite album is still pin ups despite everyone else disliking it

Bang bang


#3

My big sister used to spin liquid sweet harmony on repeat constantly, very loudly
Still hear it when I’m trying to go to sleep


#4

I wasn’t even born when this came out but my Mum used to sing it when she was pottering about the house.


#5

Wonder what the kids growing up with landfill indie like the wombats will turn out like


#6

anything by Duke Ellington, Django Rheinhardt and co. reminds me of Sunday mornings, mum knocking up a roast, watching something really shit on a black and white tv


#7

Hands Up by Ottawan!


#8

you beautiful, young cunt!


#9

Foo Fighters - Everlong/My Hero.

The Colour and The Shape was one of the first albums I bought so the whole thing is very nostalgic, but especially those two songs.

#11

Have fond memories of being at school disco’s with everyone thinking they were so cool and doing the rap to this all the way through. They were simpler times…


#12

I raise you


#13

My first boyfriend was a Badly Drawn Boy fan to that point that he always wore a crap woolly hat in his honour. This song reminds me of being 13 (I used to have to take a left, a sharp left and another left to get to his house so there was that too)


#14

Karate Kid innit


#15

#16

Ah yes I remember these fellows and Limp Bizkit being QUITE the popular Petey’s during my last year and a bit of primary school.
Probably had something to do with tony hawk’s pro skater… just such utter wank though :smiley:


#17

It was because it was the late 90s - 00s

When everything had 'tude

To be fair to Linkin Park ‘Hybrid Theory’ is still one of my go to albums when I’m completely hammered.


#18

I remember one of my friends at school being such a fan of the Rednex he wrote their name in massive letters on his pencil case.

Also I’ve just checked Wikipedia and they’re still going but without a single original member. Bit strange


#19

#20

still don’t know where i would have heard it cos it wasn’t a big single in 95 or anything, but when i bought The Bends in 2003, Planet Telex had this effect on me. must have been used in a TV show or something.
