Music and Nostalgia

Music and songs can sure go a long way in creating long-term memories of the past. When something you already love was combined with a catchy song... it's in your brain for good. Here are three examples:

 

Do the Urkel

Perhaps the spark that ignited Urkel-mania. This was early (season 2), before Urkel went to space, before he turned into Bruce Lee, before he shrunk down to the size of an insect... I could go on. All we needed was Urkel rapping with a bunch of cool kids on a rooftop. Gold.  

 

Wrestlemania the Album

Yes, I do love WWF wrestlers. Yes, I do love music also. Both? Together? Yes, please. I could not buy this cassette tape quicker. In my 1993 assessment, every song was an absolute banger on this album. Here's a prime example, Mr. Prefect's song entitled "I'm Perfect."

 

 

Coming Out of Our Shells Tour

Make the Ninja Turtles into rock stars and you know we were in. I never did get to see them in concert, unfortunately, but I sure did jam out to their tunes. The title track below still pumps me up to this day.

My idea of a good show or movie with nostalgia music includes:

Keyboards
Saxophones
Electronic drums

mmm, being that this is the first article from you i'll give this a fair rating, although to critique i should mention that your articles should have a bit more depth to them, more length, and especially more than just one paragraph when talking about something. the writing is definitely there, but to gain a good following you need to focus on these steps. you have some good examples here, but a few more in the listing would have given it some more flair. and if you can't come up with that many, just describe them with more length.
