    I figured someone else would post this. I guess I only remember it because it was a big hit about the time of my HS graduation.

    I've become a bigger fan of Ray Charles over the years. I listen to the Beatles channel on XM a lot and of all the "influences" they play he's my favorite. Guy could sing and play anything and make it emotional or fun.

    As one of the resident country music fans here I guess I should add these

    A song that I would be surprised ANYone would remember: "You Can't Go Back Home" by Sylvia. The album was Just Sylvia, the same one that produced the mega-hit, "Nobody," in 1982. It was never a single, but a very strong album cut, imo.



    Another track from the same album applies to this thread also: "The Mill Song."

    anybody else find a song or two that they were going to post and then double checked the lyrics to learn they really weren't all that PC?

    I'm probably overly cautious, but I found a David Bowie video that really gave the impression that it was recorded about the time Archie Bunker was on All in the Family. I couldn't help but cringe and think "you probably shouldn't phrase it that way".

    Putting a little twist on the category. Song about being homesick.

    Simon and Garfunkel: Homeward Bound


    Motley Crue: Home Sweet Home


    Atlanta Rhythm Section: Homesick



    Who would have guessed ARS rocked harder than the Crue in this category?

    There is a country version of that song (I know...blasphemy!), with Sugarland, Jake Owen and Little Big Town. When they get to the heyy ah mama part at the end I always find myself singing along & (if I'm somewhere where I can) dancing away. :D

    Not sure if this was posted already (if so, sorry).

    Maybe it isn't "textbook" nostalgia, more like it provides a setting for storytelling -- a backdrop-springboard for Paul's whimsy to wander.

    Completely appropriate application, according to some sources, such as Merriam-Webster, whose first definition of nostalgia is "a state of being homesick; homesickness."

    Note: Yes, I'm a bonafide geek.
