Mine is Freddie Jackson "rock me for old time sake" which was our first dance at our wedding 19 years ago, and also one of the first songs my DH played when we went on our first date.

Mine's Radiohead's Subterranean Homesick Alien.

It takes me somewhere else every time.

Too many songs for too any different reasons, but ultimately - Human by the Killers, because it was on the radio the first time I fed ds at night at home. The Beatles' Abbey Road - loads of reasons, going back my whole life. Into the Valley - The Skids - was playing on the radio on my way back from my Chartership exams which I knew i'd passed.

BikeRunSki Sat 08-Mar-14 20:48:10

Not Abbey Road, I meant Here Comes The Sun.

Nothing Else Matters - Metallica - One of the most perfect songs in the world.

Lady - Kenny Rogers - <sigh>

Afterlife - Avenged Sevenfold - I listen to this all the time, great band, perfect song.

A Case of You - Joni Mitchell - makes me cry every time.

Love everything about it, but the line "and I need you more than want you, and I want you for all time" is my favourite lyric ever.
