2017 UPDATE – Hey everyone, I just wanted to let you know that I just completed a major overhaul and update of this older post of mine about SONGS ABOUT NOSTALGIA THAT REFERENCE SPECIFIC PEOPLE, PLACES THINGS OR EVENTS OF THE PAST. There have been several more songs added, complete with videos. I’ve tried to include as many videos with lyrics so you can follow along. There have also been a few corrections and changes too. Please click the link below to take you to this updated post.
Over the years we can all relate to good times and bad times in our lives. Some are rewarding experiences that seem to make that moment in time stand still while others are unpleasant or emotional events that leave a lasting impression or hurt in our heads, hearts and souls. There are a few songs out there that specifically mention these events or people or objects that bring back these times to those of us who have lived through them. These particular songs can attest to a particular time in our past that evoke memories of that particular era.
So here I present to you a few songs with videos that reference, reflect, mention or list specific people, places, things, events and dates of the past. Some of the videos presented here also include song lyrics of vivid childhood images and memories of what it was like growing up with favorite past times, celebrities, heroes, fads, games, toys, pop culture (music, movies and TV), etc. Some of the recollections also include unpleasant or sad events such as deaths of famous people, destruction, tragedies, war and so forth.
So sit back and enjoy the following videos of songs that evoke memories and/or pay homage to specific and/or real people, places or things of our past. If you can think of others please feel free to let me know in the comment section at the bottom of this post.
