"Regulate" Warren G ft. Nate Dogg
I was in middle school when this jam came into my life. I used my babysitting money and bought the CD and had to hide it from my mom because this was on the cover
"Save Tonight" Eagle Eye Cherry
"I'm Sorry Now" Jude
"Lose Yourself" Eminem
I was an undergrad in my teaching program, and one of my professors had us read the lyrics and listen to this song. He connected it to the first days of school. You really do get one chance to make an imprint on some kids.
"405" Death Cab For Cutie (or really anything from that CD)
Freshman year of college I was introduced to Death Cab. I can't not think about my freshman dorm when any of their songs come on.
This little adventure also sucked me into the wormhole that is Youtube and I found this guy. Acoustic guitar and a violin? I'll take two please.
Alain de Courtenay
He has some great covers and I like his originals that I listened to as well.
Do you have any songs that bring you back?
