I know that /mu/ shits on Nirvana a lot, but I was 16 when that album came out and it became the soundtrack to my highschool days. I listened to it pretty much everyday for a year. And when I want to bring out the nostalgic feels with my old friends, this is the go-to album
Before 2001 I really didn't listen to music. I hadn't ever listened to a full album before. But this song blew my motherfucking mind. It was the first album I bought. I was obsessed with daft punk. I actually started listening to music, let alone electronic music who prior to 2001 I would have told you required no talent and wasn't real music.
>>48419557 Reminds me of the fall/winter of ninth grade when this first came out. I was madly in love with this girl named isabella, she had the biggest eyes and the shiniest hair and the most graceful walk. it was like everywhere she went, she didnt just walk, she would glide. Probably because she was a dancer. i just remember one night at like 11:30 (which, in 9th grade, i thought was super late for a school night) listening to this album. and right around the end of runaway into the beginning of hell of a life i realized that isabella didn't give a shit about me, and i realized how much harm i was doing to myself by chasing after her. After what I learned that night I stopped being so self-destructive and going for this unattainable holy grail of a girl. And from that I began taking care of myself because I saw that i cared about isabella (not really her specifically because I never really cared about her as a person, just as an ideal of a really attractive girl that I couldn't get) more than myself, and i saw how fucked up that was. That's why I always tell people this was the album that got me through freshman year haha
I used to listen to this all the time when I was 11 or so. I would have my friend over and we would play Star Wars Battlefront on my xbox and he would always want to listen to the song "Friends" on repeat and I never really knew why. Looking back on it I feel so happy but also very sad. I didn't have a care in the world back then and could get away with playing vidya all day. Now I have so much else to worry about. I wish I could go back for a while.
This was 2014 for me, the year before the happening. It all seemed like fiction, a joke, rather than a foretelling of what was to come. Those were halcyon days for sure. Since I've been forced into the underground by the yah-bots due to my black skin, music has just declined. Unsurprising considering this is the only album permitted by the cvlt.
remember when this came out and the next week or so it was regularly snowing. Everyday i would listen to this and walk some what aimlessly around my city feeling completely relaxed. For the first time in years. It was this that made me want to come off paxil and realising that the drug was doing more harm than good. Was also at the time i met this girl and was completely comfortable being myself around.
yeah i know it was only last year, but i can see it being a big deal in future (loveless-summer album. mbv- winter imo)
Reminds me of the month I was hired by my town's local playhouse to play drums in the pit band for one of their plays. I would listen to it in the car to and from the church they were holding the play at. Reminds me of moving my drums in and out of the church in the fucking cold February night for rehearsals, and taking lunch break to get pizza down the street with my friend who was the pianist for the band. Also reminds me of seeing my current girlfriend in the audience of one of our last shows and being too pussy to say hello.
>>48420448 Yeah man. Fucking time flies. I remember intently following the tweets, Good Fridays, and leaks until the album finally dropped and I ran home from school to listen to it. The first time that extended breakdown of Devil in a New Dress hit I got chills. Those were the days man.
Deerhunter's vox humana. I can vividly remember nights high off too much dxm and various drugs. and how nobody was ever home. i sat alone in my house with the windows open. on my bed. looking up at the stars and feeling like I was living a dream. I would listen to deerhunter's discography on repeat. but specifically this song makes me feel so deeply.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hk33WaLEff0 2006, around the first time I fell in love and I got bitten fucking hard, I was very into this entire album at the time, not exactly a love album, but it just reminds that year in 10th grade. I havent listened to this album in probably 5 years.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=itBUWsjOQFk Takes me back to 2007 when I got my heart broken for the first time, I just got so many emotions connected to this song it's hard to describe what vibe it gives me. It was devastating, the great white buffalo. I was in a really dark place for about a year since everything just fell apart for me all at once. I think I never quite got over it, I just got better at dealing with it.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8jx5ikd9W4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tCnBrrnOefs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0gE3gRCXbDY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7ArUgxtlJs These one brings me back to 2008-2010. All the fucking parties we had, these was played on every single one. There isnt much I miss when it comes to high school, but at least you had a wast social circle, a shitload of people always turned up for a good party.
These 8 years feel like a fucking life time. I had a good time.
Anyone here ever listen to music that fits a certain season of the year, and then only exclusively listen to that album during that particular time of year? That's basically the only way I listen to music. Like you could never catch me listening to something like Funeral (arcade fire) in anything but Fall, or Replica (oneohtrix point never) in anything but winter.
this was my first album i ever bought with my own money. i was in 7th grade and i listened to this album on repeat for months. i remember i got my cousins into it and we would drive with this album blaring and the windows down. almost 10 years ago.
>>48430640 For daytime, I've been listening to a lot of Perfect from Now On (built to spill), and Kurt Vile. Nighttime, a lot of Yo La Tengo. Pic related and I Can Hear the Heart Beating as One mostly. Also the Natural Bridge by Silver Jews. How about you?
this song reminds me of walking around ranches in rural Germany with my grandparents as a young child. it's the best feeling. this is my favorite song ever, and every time i listen to it, it's an incredibly emotional experience. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWnUuosQwZY
this entire album brings back memories for some reason. hexagon makes me think of sunny winter days covered in snow from when i lived in alaska.
It reminds me of this one city that I used to visit for vacations every summer, it had this long ass bridge that had nothing but a view of the ocean on all sides once you were at the middle of it, haven't visited in a long time and if I did today then that would be the song of choice while driving along it.
Reminds me of when I would take walks around the city really late at night during weekends at college. I really liked the sense of danger had while doing it, but looking back on it it seems pretty silly.
3 years ago this past June I was diagnosed with Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma (type of Cancer) so I had to be transported out to the nearest children's hospital (which is a 5 hour drive from home) to receive treatment as an inpatient for 8 months. The tumor was located at the lower end of my spinal cord, pinching it off and rendering me paralyzed from the waist down. One of the nights that I was laying in my hospital bed, wishing that it all be over and to have an end to my miserable depressing life, I came across this song by Fog called "Pneumonia." I vividly remember listening to the lyrics and just crying myself to sleep thinking what a waste of a life I was.
I've been cancer free for 2 years and can walk again. I'm fully independent, work a full time job, and have my own place.
This may be pleb now, but man oh man does this song give me some of the strongest nostalgia of my life. Me and my high school friends literally played this every single day and night of the summer before I moved. Takes me back to much simpler times, even if you guys think Drake is gay.
>>48431377 Just as dangerous as any average city I guess. I grew up in the country so college was my first experience living in a big city. I ran into a few shady people but as long as I didn't do anything stupid I was fine.
This was my gateway to really listening to music. I remember there was this one Sonic X AMV with this song in it on Youtube back in, like 2007 that I watched ad nauseum because I fucking loved the song for some reason. Don't quite love AC/DC as much as I did then, but I at least acknowledge them for starting me on my musical journey.
>>48432019 Star Ocean: Till the End of Time is the best example. i have some nice memories associated with that one. i only played it for a couple of days, so it feels pretty surreal to think about it. it had a weird futuristic atmosphere, as well, which is pretty vaporwavey.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KGEyqP0744c and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LYpJI5XcjYA i was like around 8-10 and me and my family went to this reunion in PA. it was a park, lots of trees. we were at a pavilion and i took my sisters ipod since i didnt have one, and i went riding my scooter there. met some kids there around my age, and i remember distinctly being on a swingset tied to a big ass tree, listening to those 2 songs for the first time and over and over again looking at the trees touch the horizon.
>>48431364 >Constants are Changing by Boards of Canada Dude that's one hell of a story to impress a girl with though, you have to admit. It's super impressive to bounce back from that not only physically but emotionally.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AAMorg60XNs i know. i know.
i got this album for christmas when i was like 7, along with spyro 3 year of the dragon. i hooked up my ps1 to a small tv in the corner of my living room on the floor and layed down playing it right next to the christmas tree. i played both spyro 2 and 3 that day but i kept playing that song's intro over and over again while playing spyro 2's hockey mini game with that yeti. for some reason that intro reminded me of hockey music or whatever lol
I used to lay in my bed and watch The Weather Channel for hours on end in the late 90s/early-to-mid 00s. Comfiest feeling ever, I really wish I could relive those days. Songs such as these remind me of that feeling, they used to play these songs all of the time on the Local on the 8s.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sp95UC8UOf4 (Trammell Starks - Good Ole Days - I bought the CD that contains this from the artist himself) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVVin2joxHM (Brian Hughes - Stringbean) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bErIdi2MtiQ (Gota Yashiki - European Comfort) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wn5Nri-HMnE (Pat Metheny Group - James) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bgGriR3-988 (Ryan Farish - Run To You)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GeeFjmposyc A lot of unreleased material by BOC reminds me of the way my home used to be my entire world and going outside at all was like exploring outer space. Now that I'm in college and my family is disconnected, I feel like Sandra Bollocks in Gravity.
>>48433399 American Football gives me so many fucking feels
I really don't know why, I've never suffered too bad of a breakup, only discovered it a few months ago, haven't been through too many traumas / troubles / difficulties in my life. I really can't relate to the lyrics, but I still get emotional when listening.
warning, they are really, REALLY dense. I wouldn't just put them on in the background, you need to sit down and listen to it with nothing else on yout mind. Its really rewarding though. I'd check it out.
This fucking album. Holy shit, the nostalgia. I bought this fucker on release day and for the better part of a decade it stuck with me.
Listening to it reminds me of my first kiss, learning to drive, being nervous as fuck to start High School, the ups and downs of my family life through that era and everything in between.
Where does time go? I still remember blasting "So Far Away" on the way to the movie theater to meet my first girlfriend in 2005. It feels just like yesterday that I had that nauseous feeling in my stomach and was tapping my leg like a mad man over the anxiety of a first date. Listening to that song and yelling the lyrics in the personal studio that was my beat-up F-150 helped calm me down and put me somewhere else for a little while.
back when i was little my parents had me stay at this babysitter's house. this was around '98 or '99 or so. her son had left behind an nes with maniac mansion and some contra sequel, and lots of weird action figures of soldier dudes where you could flip them around and make their eyes bug out and turn into mutants and weird gross shit like that. it was right out on the edge of these suburbs so that when you looked in one direction it was all cookie-cutter houses with little pools but when you looked the other way it was just a long dusty road for miles with a big cornfield on the other side. she had lots of vhs tapes of weird obscure slasher/horror movies that she obviously never let us watch, but the covers alone used to entrance me and weird me out. this album brought all those vibes back.
