Are there any songs you can think of that have some good memories attached to it?

I don't think you'll appreciate the new-age crap I listen to. :LOL:

Ooo yeah......Gotta love a bit of supertramp. :D

Also

Vaughan-Williams 'The Lark Ascending', or his "London Symphony' (second movement in particular is 11 minutes of just...... wonderful-ness)
Fleet Foxes stuff is great - Ragged Wood, or Helplessness Blues or Bedoin Dress in particular
Joni Mitchell - Both Sides Now or pretty much anything off the 'Blue' album
Faure - Pavane is lovely.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2jJqeCgOLuc - Schumann's 5 cello pieces. Number two is the best one - go to 2:42 mins in and it'll start.

and finally, this:

Morten Lauridsen, Sure on this shining night

Sure on this shining night
Of star made shadows round,
Kindness must watch for me
This side the ground.
The late year lies down the north.
All is healed, all is health.
High summer holds the earth.
Hearts all whole.
Sure on this shining night I weep for wonder wand'ring far
alone
Of shadows on the stars.
