Here's a short list of songs that just plain turn me on. Did then...still do.
Be-Bop-A-Lula, Gene Vincent
Summertime Blues, Eddie Cochran
Rave On, Buddy Holly
Stay, Maurice Williams and the Zodiacs
Ya-Ya, Lee Dorsey
Gimme Shelter, Rolling Stones,
Desire, U2

Adding a few tonight...

Baby, Let's Play House, Elvis Presley
Not Fade Away, Buddy Holly
Sparks Will Fly, The Rolling Stones

Adding another...blast from the present...

Hollow Bones, Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds

These are not songs that I associate with a person or even a specific time in my life. It's that they hit me in a primal place and I react to them with a free-floating excitement.

Great list idea!

Here's some additions:

You May Be Right - Billy Joel
You Got Me Rockin' - Stones (same album as Sparks Will Fly, one of my absolute favorites)
La Vida Loca - Ricky Martin - okay he probably doesn't even exist here at the Alley, too new and too pop, but I still love the song!
