What do you listen when you feel nostalgic, /n/?


File: 1382299896584.png (19.87 KB, 320x240, MeadowWalkb.PNG)

Every month I make a new folder, and call it [### MONTH YEAR]. During the month, I make music and place all the resultant files into this folder.

When I feel nostalgic, I go back through and listen to my life in music!

This month it is 082 October 2013.

This is one of the few things that can bring me real pleasure.


Dire straits and steve miller band…

Just one or two songs, reminds me off the music my parents would play when we would drive down to france to camp during summer holiday.

Daft Punk's Discovery album, Katamari Damacy's soundtrack, the Naruto best hits collection, and soundtracks from Studio Ghibli films. I bought/imported those when I was ~12 (along with a Polysics album…) and they were pretty much the entirety of my music collection for a few years until my brother got me an MP3 player and loaded it up with all his cool music. I listened to the soundtracks to Whispers of the Heart and Katamari Damacy everywhere I went. In the car, shopping, showering, cleaning my room, at the dentists while they did work on my braces…those two disks must have been played thousands of times.

I suppose the aforementioned Polysics album SHOULD be nostalgic, but I just can't listen to it anymore. Too embarrassing. I can see why I liked it, and there's little things in the songs that I still like, but overall they just sound loud and annoying to me now.

A lot of nostalgic music I stay away from out of embarrassment of how I was alternately a weaboo or awannabee emo goth (switching back and forth or being both at once) from ages 13 to 16. I can't bring myself to listen to some bands I used to like then. I still thing The Killers are a good band, for example, but it physically hurts me to listen to them because I just remember the dumb decisions I made and makeup I wore while listening to them when I was 15.

I will defend the honor of that Naruto Best Hits Collection to the death, though. I was a horrible narutard and I think the show sucks now and I'm no longer a fan. But I still listen to that damn CD, Naruto had some great music. I still love the openings and endings. Even the fight music and stuff they played during sad scenes was great. I haven't watched Naruto four years, but I still listen to music from that show on a weekly basis. I guess it helps that it's basically the definition of Nostalgia goggles; I get to listen to music that meant something to me and brings back old feelings and good memories of listening to those songs with my friends, but I can forget/ignore memories of my stupid Naruto OCs and pathetic "shrine" to Rock Lee. That's what nostalgia is, just remembering the good stuff.

Daft Punk shoots me right back to watching Toonami when I was a kid and they'd show those bits of Interstella 5555 between shows and stuff. Other childhood nostalgia music includes Weezer, Ween, Presidents of the United States of America, The Rentals, and The Who. I used to listen to those bands with my oldest brother in his room and his car. I miss when we were that close…

Ooh ohh Ben Folds and Sigor Ros are nostalgic too, I used to listen to them while I fell asleep in middleschool before I went on sleep medicine. I kind of miss my nightly 2-3 hours of Sigor Ros but then again I don't miss having to lie in bed for 2-3 hours every night before falling asleep.

Some early vocaloid songs are already becoming nostalgic to me, too. I think anything I listened to more than 3 years ago is nostalgic.

Wow this post is long. I spend a lot of time thinking about this stuff.


Neil Young, old anime openings, Joe Hisaishi, late Showa era J-pop, Suzanne Vega, some Jun Togawa/Yapoos songs, NWOBHM, hair metal, Pet Shop Boys, and some other stuff that sounds like it was made in '80-'95. I'm not that old, but when I was a kid that was all the music I listened to (+children's songs, obviously), because that was all my dad had on VHS and c-cassette. Oh and he also had Leonard Cohen and Led Zeppelin. And I don't mean to say he had anime music or anything very cool like that. Just a general set of eighties' and early nineties' music.


And because of bad coherence: part two: the Finnish music I find nostalgic. I couldn't really fit this in my first post, but someone like me should find this interesting. Any person who lives in a non-english-speaking country, pls post your native stuff, it isn't easy to find :( Kolmas Nainen is one of my father's favorites, so I find it very nostalgic. It's the best Finnish band imo, too. Juice Leskinen, Leevi and the Leavings, Dave Lindholm, Ratsia and Se.

Mostly just stuff from The Nightmare Before Christmas and some Studio Ghibli films, but also things like this:
When I first herd it it reminded me of all those times in my dreams I spent flying over the world. The dark warm air, the feeling of the grit of the shingles as I would perch on rooftops, and the shadows cast by the full Moon. This actually brought a tear to my eye.

Oh, and I cant forget this!

I never feel nostalgia + the need to indulge it with old music.


please, everyone knows sloshy's cover was superior. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D4vxd1FHCOY
(no seriously limozeen is so nostalgic, homestarrunner was my favorite thing in 7th grade, I got in trouble in english class every day for talking to my friend about it while teacher was teachin')



>English Class

>In 'Murrica

No, seriously, how is that even supposed to work? Is a class where they teach you grammar and such? Then, shouldn't it be called 'grammar' or something like that?
Sage because off-topic.


In English classes in America, the goal is usually to acquaint the students with literature rather than teach them about the language.
It involves a lot of Shakespeare, boring novels, and essays about those readings.

It isn't until college/university that classes specify what they're teaching about English - composition, American literature, literature and composition (analyzing and writing), etc.


You're kinda right. You'd normally be right.
But my middle school was incredibly stupid, you see.
English class was pretty much grammar class in my middleschool. In highschool and college, it was the literature deal. In middleshcool we had a "reading" class that served as our literature class where we read books and stuff. English class was basically grammar, advanced spelling/vocabulary, and writing skills. It was a dumb class.
BUT BACK ON THE TOPIC OF NOSTALGIC MUSIC, in that same 7th grade english class, the teacher played THIS song for us:
us 12 year olds thought this was the funniest thing on earth. Me and my friend used to sing it during lunch and gym, until we discovered the songs from Tim and Eric and started singing those any chance we got


I… I honestly don't remember what I listened when I last felt nostalgic. I have at least two songs that I associate with nostalgia, but I'm pretty sure they just evoke that feeling in me.

I don't think music is that important to me when I feel nostalgic. Nostalgia is a lonely feeling. It is best enjoyed in peace and quiet.

Cave Story soundtrack. I was so obsessed with it circa 2006


File: 1382479105247.jpg (68.21 KB, 703x699, the_idiot.jpg)

Same here. Other games with soundtracks that stick out in my mind are the Ace Attorney games, Hotel Dusk, OFF and the Mother games (especially Mother 3).

As for conventional music, Nine Inch Nails brings me back pretty hard to the 8th grade, as does Simon & Garfunkel. Jefferson Airplane and Andrew Jackson Jihad remind me of more recent years. Tool is probably what got me into music, I adored Opiate as a kid.

Oh, also, pic related.


The old (classic), the new, or the remastered one, Spidey? Because I absolutely ADORE the remastered version. It has almost all of the original's sound, but performed in high quality, and with an additional layer or two added on top. It sounds both modern and retro.

Anyway, I'm writing here because I'm 6313 and it's funny, but I decided to go on a nostalgia trip. Right now I'm uncovering the abandoned InvisionFree forums I once attended. Whoo boy, that was 6 or 7 years ago. I was 16/15 then. They were made by people my age (always the same group of guys), devoted to nothing in particular, mostly created to kill some time. They had a lifespan of mere weeks, maybe a month or two tops. One day I sort of left that group and never looked back… until today.

These forums feel so nice. They are completely empty.
And just because earlier today I listened to the entire Cave Story+ remastered soundtrack, "White" chose to begin to play in my head and now I'm listening to it:

The track sounds rather pleasant but also has a very faint bit of sadness to it, if you consider whose theme this track is. In my head, it fits the mood of those places perfectly.

Cave Story is a seriously magical game, too. But I digress.


I've actually only ever played the freeware original, but I've been wanting to play the remakes for about as long as they've been out.
