    Child of the late 70’s here, so a lot of radio hits stand out, but that’s what paved the way to classic rock for me and precipitated my love for guitar and music. Here are just a few that bring back happy memories of a carefree time, sunny days and smiles with family/friends:

    Unlike you, this was my teen years, not my childhood.

    Almost the oldest here maybe. This was one of the first songs I learnt to play on my acoustic electric Hofner Senator (with a screwed on pickup) and a cheap Lew Davis Amp. from Charing Cross Rd London. Ahhhh the '50s were so good!!

    Any alternative music from the mid-90's. Bosstones, Blink 182, Green Day, Weezer Blue Album, etc. Reminds me of high school.

    My parents listened to this on their huge console stereo. Always hits my nostalgia nerve.
