10 Songs That Remind Me of My Youth

  1. Meatloaf – I Would Do Anything for Love
    • If you knew me or still know me, you know this has been my all time favorite song, since I can remember.
    • What won’t he do for love? Ah, the poor boys I use to ask this question to.
  2. Michael Jackson – Will You Be There
    • The Free Willy soundtrack was the first cd I ever bought, the year was 1993. Still to this day I catch myself singing the words to this song. Hold me, like the river Jordan and I will then say to thee, you are my friend…
  3. Pearl Jam – Jeremy
    • The second cd I remember buying, especially for Jeremy. No, I’ve never loved a Jeremy and this song is actually creepy. Why I loved and still love it, I don’t know.
  4. Dixie Chicks – Goodbye Earl
    • My friends and I use to listen to this song on repeat and sing our little hearts out. Sill do, to this song and every other Dixie Chick song.
  5. Tori Amos –  Silent All These Years
    • I tried so hard to learn the words to this and every other song on the Little Earthquakes cd, just to be cool like my older sister Amanda, and her friends. Still can’t believe Amanda and I didn’t go see her when she was in SA last year. Stupid.
  6. Reba McEntire – Starting Over Again
    • This song always takes me back to memories of a friend’s mother’s car. Only now it registers that her parents were going through a divorce then, no wonder her mother loved this song. I still love it.
  7. Garth Brooks – Friends in Low Places
    • Cause I got friends in low places. I don’t think I fully understood the words to this song when I was 12 and fell in love with it. No backup music needed for me to belt out this beauty.
  8. Toby Keith – How Do You Like Me Now
    • But it was Toby Keith’s How Do You Like Me Now that converted me into the country music fan for life.
  9. Aerosmith – Crazy
    • Every girl wanted to be Alicia Silverstone back then. If it was this music video or Clueless. She was the IT girl.
  10. David Grey – Babylon
    • This song is my 20s.

Honorable Mentions:

    • Tracy Chapmen – Fast Cars
    • Jewel – Foolish Games
    • Hanson – MMMBop
    • Nelly – Ride Wit Me
    • Notorious B.I.G – Hypnotize


Awe, the younger years. I wonder what songs will remind Ava of her youth? Hopefully, not Justin Bieber.

What song takes you back?

Listable Life

  1. Notorious BIG reminds me of my first love. Pearl Jam reminds me of my last (my hubby is obsessed). I love Tori Amos, Indigo girls, Tracy Chapman, and Grateful Dead from my teenage years. Whitney Houston’s Greatest love of all was my first song obsession. Cute post!

  2. @natalie1 I think we were friends in our past life! All the above plus the Indigo Girls and Grateful Dead! Except for the fact my husband has never seen Star Wars. It’s on my list of MUST DO’s, I promise.
