After the Rain (1996)
Surprisingly Gymnopedie No. 1 lets me automatically associate with snow, falling slowly and and having a soothing effect (and not rain).
Pachelbel Canon / Ocean Sounds - Anastasi
When hearing this variation of the Canon I always get the mental picture of standing on a mountain (or tall building) and watching the sunset. In me the music creates a feeling of vastness and something coming to an end.
[Although the classic version rather brings something royal with it that might let me associate it with a spring landscape in broad daylight.]
This song starts out and immediately I see before me the Notre Dame de Paris, ash and an approaching thunder-storm.
Old Boy - Yeong Wook Jo
I do not neccessarily associate it with the film when I only hear 'The Last Waltz'.
In my head there's a picture of someone going on a lonely merry-go-around (actually the one with the tea cups) in the evening.
"Building Mode 1" first of all gives me a nostalgic flashback to my childhood and then the song joins with the image of a cold January day when there is no more snow. A person sits inside, warmly dressed, warming his/her hands on a tea cup and watching the silent scenery outside through an opened window.
Officium - Hilliard Ensemble,Sarum Chant,Perotin,Cristobal de Morales,Pierre de La Rue,Guillaume Dufay,Czech An
"Primo Tempore" makes me feel like I'm sitting on bench in a lonesome church. A church somewhere far from everyone else, seated in a landscape with meadows. (With the only light coming from the mosaic windows.)
Here's a short audio sample of 'Primo Tempore' because, alas, I couldn't find any other source.
The National - The National
This song transports me to a secluded shelter at a train station. Someone sitting there at night, watching the tracks and the land behind it. And not one train ever comes by.
I have realized that there are a couple of songs that create a very clear image in my mind. So now I'm in the process of listing them. Why not? :P
