Do you have a song that takes you back to a special time or place?

Susan Kruithof: One of my favorites is slow dancing to ELO’s “Telephone Line” in my first husband’s parents’ living room (before we were married). We were all alone, just 16 and 17 years old. We were so in love. Ridiculously in love.

Elly Green: “Cherish” by Madonna. Driving in the car with my Daddy when I was about 8 years old, singing it at the top of our lungs. Brings a tear to my eye just thinking about it!

Christopher Westergard: Jimmy Eat World’s jam “Sweetness” takes me back to growing up in Mesa, Ariz., and seeing them play live at Nina’s Hidaway. Those were the days when I was young, innocent and unaware of reality.

Rachel Scott: The Beatles: Past Masters—Vol. One. “Komm gib mir deine Hand” (“I Want to Hold Your Hand”). I was 15 and living in my mom’s basement. I thought The Beatles singing in German was the best thing since sliced bread! I was a bizarre kid ...

Austen Diamond: In college, I took a trip to Costa Rica with a close friend. I woke up one morning after a particularly wild evening and wrote a jingle called “Donde es me pantalones?” to record my dire situation. Whenever I think of that song, I’m brought back to a tropical hangover (without pants).

John Paul Brophy: Only one?! Heading a very long list would be Dylan’s “Like a Rolling Stone,” exploding out of the radio of my friend’s mother’s car as we heard it that first time when she was picking us up from surfing at Santa Monica Beach.
