I Remember That!! 10 Songs That Give Me a Nostalgia Punch

There are many songs that have done this but the first one that kick started this idea for me today was this one. I had heard this in a gas station today.

1. Mya - Ghetto Superstar (1998)

I Remember That!! 10 Songs That Give Me a Nostalgia Punch


From the movie Bulworth. This one took me back and it threw me off because I had not heard it in such a long time. I only really connect with Mya's lyrics but they really make me think of the music from the time.

2. Breathe- Hands to Heaven (1988)

I Remember That!! 10 Songs That Give Me a Nostalgia Punch


"So raise your hands to heaven and pray
That we'll be back together someday


Tonight, I need your sweet caress
Hold me in the darkness
Tonight, you calm my restlessness
You relieve my sadness"

Those lyrics knocked me out of the ballpark, OMG I KNOW THIS SONG!!! But the funny thing, its only those lyrics lol

3. Hold on- Wilson Philips (1990)

I Remember That!! 10 Songs That Give Me a Nostalgia Punch


Long before the Bridesmaids ever came out, I got a 90's collection and started going through the songs and was trying to find a shocker that I had never heard of most of them I knew on the collection or did not really care for then I ran into this. It was probably the only one I really got shocked by with the whole set but it was worth it! I turned it up and I must have played it at least 5 five times!

4. Glory of Love- Peter Cetera (1986)

I Remember That!! 10 Songs That Give Me a Nostalgia Punch


This Shocked me too!! It could not have been on the 90's collection but it was around the same time I was listening to Hold On by Wilson Philips, I really did not catch on too much with Karate Kid as a kid but my brother really did but even then I only knew this song from just hearing it on the radio but it was so good and I always forgot it or did not hear the radio say who it was done by until I caught it on a collection.

5. Cherish- Kool and the Gang (1984)

I Remember That!! 10 Songs That Give Me a Nostalgia Punch


So this was a great song and yes this song and the glory of love have been on my other love songs lists but this and the glory of love both shocked me when I had not heard them in a while and surprise surprise, I am going to list another one again from my prior list because I was shocked to have not hear it for so long. But this song was based on these lyrics

"Cherish the love we have
We should cherish the life we live
Cherish the love
Cherish the life
Cherish the love
Cherish the love we have
For as long as we both shall live
Cherish the love
Cherish the life
Cherish the love"

It is so good to hear and fun to sing along with

6. Always- Atlantic Starr (1987)

I Remember That!! 10 Songs That Give Me a Nostalgia Punch


This is such a feel good song and it shocked me when I heard it played on the radio and quickly got it down on paper when I heard the artist. So good.... I will let the lyrics speak for themselves

"Ooh your life is sun,
Chasing all the rain away,
When you come around you bring a brighter day
You're the perfect one
For me and you forever we'll be
And I will love you so for always"

7. Bad Boy- Gloria Estefan (1985)

I Remember That!! 10 Songs That Give Me a Nostalgia Punch


This is a great little song but always seems to elude me. For some reason I don't think its played that often but it is a lot of fun and it is catchy and enjoyable to listen too.

8. Hold on Loosely - 38 Special (1981)

I Remember That!! 10 Songs That Give Me a Nostalgia Punch


This song I caught on a southern rock collection, I have heard it before for sure but it kinda hit me hard because I had not heard it in a while, love the rifts

9. Still The One- Orleans 1976

I Remember That!! 10 Songs That Give Me a Nostalgia Punch


This one I heard on a classic rock collection from time-life this video itself is from another one. But I also caught it on the radio too and I never caught the name until I heard it on that collection. It is a sweet song that I am glad to say I now know the name of :)

10. Gloria- Laura Branigan 1982

I Remember That!! 10 Songs That Give Me a Nostalgia Punch


This really got me a couple of times on the radio but only the name Gloria and so much power and so much fun! But always quickly forgot after I sung with it on the radio to write it down then I finally did :) It such great little gem and what's cool is Glee thought so too


Well that's my list, what songs gave you a nostalgia punch, I'd like to hear them?

  • Not really my taste in music any of these but a couple of them if I hear them will remind me of my childhood and will carry a nostalgic touch of course even some songs that I really dislike
    It is funny that you picked that Gloria song with Laura Branigan I guess maybe it was her most famous? But I remember another one... self control? I forget
    I don't know if I can really think of many songs as such that does it I don't usually think about it or seek it out just when I hear some songs it may do it
    I guess that other Laura Branigan song is one
    One night in Bangkok no idea who made it there was that song with that Italian lady Sabrina? It was called boys boys boys and was really terrible... But the music video... the music video!
