Song Association

Do you ever hear old songs from when you were a kid an associate them with some distant memory?

I was listening to XM radio channel 7, the 70s, the Bee Gees' and 'How Deep is Your Love' came on and I got a sudden flash of a memory of looking at Estes Model Rocket catalogs when I was a kid.

Yes I know the song has nothing to do with that, but, what sounds, tastes, or smells triggers unrelated childhood memories for you?

I can hear Bob Seger songs and recall riding with my dad when he drove diesel gas trucks.

Poat whatcha got. I bet it's weird.
