One of my favorite songs is Taxi by Harry Chapin, Jim's son. One of the great lyrics and a great story song that is quite visual. It takes place in San Francisco; but any suburb would do.But I always visual the same place when I listen to it.

I think music, esp. popular music is fundamentally about nostalgia. 'Nostalgia' becomes a bad word because young people want to think that they are on the cutting edge of what's happening. But even some of the most radical rock and roll is all about nostalgia.
