What songs hit you with a wave of nostalgia every time you hear them?

Hotel California ~ Eagles

All Right Now. Free

Every time I hear this song, it takes me back to the youth club I used to go to with my friends when I was about 13 - there was an older teenage boy called Peter who lived at the end of my street. He was about 17 years old, so not one of my peer group but he used to play table tennis with me at the Youth Club.
This song always reminds me of him.
He was a slim, loose-limbed lad, light on his feet and a great table-tennis player - he looked really “cool” in his faded denim jeans and “American style baseball boots” - this was his favourite song and he was always playing it on the youth club record player, which transmitted over the loudspeakers in every room of the club, and he often used to dance about while he sang along to it, while we were playing table tennis.

Ah, the memories - I wonder where he is now - if he is still around, he will be over 70 by now.
