What songs make you think of things (like imagining places or times)?

Oh man, this thread was made for me!

Midnight City by M83 is my driving song, I always put it on when I'm driving at night. Like driving on the highway and seeing all the lights pass you by. It makes me feel like my life is exciting and I have cool places to be.

Darling, I Love You by Andrew Jackson Jihad reminds me of my first relationship ever. It's kind of a big departure from typical love songs ("I like telling dirty jokes. And I like smoking crystal meth. But darling I love you"), but it's still pretty funny. My ex was a pretty good singer and he would record himself singing all sorts of songs for me and then send them to me. This was one of them.

Closer by The Chainsmokers reminds me of my first semester of college, just because it was a very popular song that I heard everywhere. Reminds of how excited I felt to be transitioning into what seemed like a new life.

The Suburbs by Arcade Fire reminds me of..youth I guess? I was walking back to my dorm from the library late at night and the beat made me feel like I was in Ferris Bueller or something. Swinging my backpack straps, walking down this long hallway with columns on both sides, nice breeze, etc.

[Youth by Glass Animals[(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ZdsmLgCVdU) is a song I listened to with my friends when we went longboarding at night. It really just makes you wanna dance and we'd do it while trying to maintain our balance on our boards haha. We always went longboarding at around 3am and we'd take the metro downtown, explore empty parking garages, skate through beautiful rich neighborhoods, etc. Hearing the song reminds me of the super freeing feeling of the wind blowing through my hair and seeing my surroundings fly by as my arms are outstretched. My friends are in my peripheral vision and they're having a great time too. Idk, it sounds super basic and wanderlusty, but people like these things for a reason I guess haha.

I have tons more, but this post is already getting super long so I'll just stop here lol.
