Haha, awesome story.  I love Spinal Tap (and Boston).

It would be impossible for me to pick a favorite song.  I love music waaay too much to pick just one.  I think I more associate different albums with different parts of my life.

Revolver is the album that I can’t listen to without thinking about studying abroad in England when I was 20.  The most exciting and intense 6 weeks of my life! 

Abba Gold reminds me of my senior year of college, when me and my girls road-tripped from Austin, TX to Vegas.  So much fun!  After that 1500 mile drive, we arrived at the Strip, blasting Dancing Queen and sticking our heads out the sun roof.  So much fun!

Cease to Begin by Band of Horses is my album of the moment–I hope when I look back on it I will think of all the amazing times my fiance and I had preparing to get married.

I can’t really choose one song…it changes with my mood. I always go back to anything from Linkin Park. I know a lot of the lyrics are angry, but they’re meaningful, because they remind me of a difficult part of my life, and regardless of whether the songs have a happy ending, I remember the hard times and understand that they made me who I am today.

For the past year, I’d have to say the songs with the most plays on my iPod are "Fuera de Mi" by La Ley. I love La Ley (and Beto Cuevas now that he’s gone solo) because most of the songs are about love and life and the lyrics are so poetic. Of course, my FI has had to translate each one for me…but I’m learning, and the songs just aren’t as beautiful in English.

My family is going to be so confused at the wedding when all my favorite spanish songs are played….haha.

Oh man, i love a lot of songs. One of my faves is "you are my sunshine" which my mom used to sing to me when I was a kid. Also "it’s yoru love" which my FI and I danced to for the first time at a fraternity formal before we even started dating.  I just like music in general though. Anything I can bop my head to in the car and belt out works for me!

Ooo another one is anything by The Cars. My dad used to play that during the summer–that and Michael Jackson was like our Family’s Summer Anthem–while we swam in the pool all day. That always makes me think of summer back home in the pool

Great thread!

My favorite song is "Over The Hills & Far Away" by Led Zeppelin.  I love the guitar work on it and I love the way it goes from a tender love song to a hard rockin’ tune, all in one song.
