Is there songs that remind you of lighting « on: March 13, 2019, 08:35:53 PM » Author: Cole D.
For me I have a memory as a child, where we went to a store and it had fluorescent strip lights. I remember looking at them and seeing the W logo in circle, and the Rick Astley song "Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down, never gonna run around and desert you" was playing. So I kind of associate Westinghouse bulbs with that song, even though it has nothing to do with it other than that memory of hearing it while seeing those bulbs. Even though at the time I didn't know what that W logo meant, as a child.

Now I guess that 80s song by Journey "Streetlight people" can remind one of streetlights. It makes me think of a GE M-400 for some reason when I hear it.

Collect vintage incandescent and fluorescent fixtures. Also like HID lighting and streetlights.

Yup.  I remember as a kid riding in a car with my mom as she was driving us home.  It was at dusk and I was fixated on the MV streetlights coming on.  
The song that was playing was this one:

The more you hate the LED movement, the stronger it becomes.

The other day I heard the song by These Dreams, by Heart and it reminded me of being a kid and looking at street lights. Because when I first took an interest in them, I was riding with my mom and I remember looking up at an AEL 165 and some GE M-400A2 fixtures and I remember that song was playing on the radio.

Any song on the 1989 compilation "The Wild Ones" . We used to have the cassette and listen to it in the car. I especially remember it at night when the street lights were on (lots more MV back then) or in the period I referred to as the "street light zone" which is the time of dusk when you have a high probability of seeing HID street lights in various stages of warmup (or seeing them strike).

@Cole : That song seems appropriate for the Westinghouse lamps : "Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down..." can be interpreted to refer to their long life. Cool

Led Zeppelin- When the Levee Breaks is something I for whatever reason associate with clear mercury NEMAs.

Ellie Goulding’s “Lights”.  Purely by name does it make me think of lights.
