1. reminds me of my childhood Sunday mornings – because every Sunday my father listened to the radio program whose theme tune was this song. As for 2,7, and 8, Ryuichi Sakamoto's recommend these tunes played by Glenn Gould, I believe these are romantic pieces. Haruki Murakami described The Beach Boys' excellent albums "Sunflower" and "Surf's Up" in his music essay, it also made me want to listened to these album. I'm very impressionable. I think that 11. is the best track by The Backbeat band – the band for the movie "Backbeat", which is about the early life of the Beatles. The song radiated the young Beatles' wild rock attitude. 16. was my friend whilst jogging. The promotion video of the song featuring a roller skate musical movie evoked me to run delightfully.
