music and smiles

What's a song that always brings back a happy memory?

I am listening to a Cure CD, and "Just Like Heaven" always takes me back to dancing on the balcony of a dormitory at Tulane in New Orleans with my high school best friend.  I had a crush on an emo punk boy that worked with us, not reciprocated but I was young and could still have hopeful dreams.  We were on a trip with an interest group, away from parents and strict supervision, and feeling free, like the world was open just for us.
