Hm, I tend to agree with above comment (so you could just look at the list of fave bands I posted recently), but I will try and list a few special ones together with the memory:

Slowdive - Spanish Air (is a song which reminds me of being in the car of a friend, who sometimes took me along to the 'indie/dark wave' etc. disco at the "Cat Café" or to a concert - he played the song on his car stereo and I liked it so much, that I often asked him to put it on again when I got into his car... this must've been around 1994-'96)

The Cure - Untitled (the whole album often reminds me of the summer of '89, but this song in particular; I was hanging about with not much to do and rather melancholy at the time - school was over, love lost, what comes next?)

The Cure - Snakepit ("Well I'm out in a car and it's just full of stupid girls" is part of the lyrics - and this is exactly what it reminds me of!! :-D)

The Sound - Sense of purpose (will always remind me of the times around 1987, when I listened to this and lots of other new wave/(post-)punk/gothic music with some friends, while we were driving to or trying to find places where this kind of music was played... yeah we had some long journeys...)

TV Smith - Backstage Bob (this song is a "tribute" to a mate who sadly passed away in 2007, so will always remind me of him)

Cranes - Beautiful friend (reminds me of a special person - she was a close friend around 1995)

Calexico - Feast of Wire (this album awakens memories of the hot summer back in 2003)

David Gilmour - Faces Of Stone (again makes me think of a special person...)

As you can imagine, this list could go on and on (and on)! But I'll leave it with these for the moment.
(For the "songs I couldn't live without": don't get me started, could be another endless list!!)
but memory's not life... and it's not love.

Wunderlich, Sokrates sprach stets davon, daß er von
einer Frau gelernt habe. O, auch ich kann sagen, ich
verdanke einem Mädchen mein Bestes; ich habe es just
nicht von ihr gelernt, sondern durch sie.
(Sören Kierkegaard)
