Alice In Chains - Died. I have memories of my past life I had it in a dream a long time ago. I was sitting on a couch in a dark. room with a tv and I couldn’t move and I remember everything went black.

While my answer to this question is usually various recreations of older music styles which remind me of certain eras, this song reminds me more of past events and personalities:

1st life: gerbil

This isn't really a memory but it's the intense feeling captured by the song I'm trying to get back from the guy I just posted about... The climax around 4:40...

Have you met any one that sends you to outer space like that? Like it's such a rush it's indescribable...
Why couldn't it be more than just a touch and a feeling...


This song gives me some specific ideas, like maybe I drowned and froze to death in a past life. I also get suicidal agitation a lot and suspect I've comitted suicide or died recklessly in many lives due to lack of inner peace when missing soul mate(s)... :/

My dream had visions of me running in a totally distinctive world I've ever seen. A red building signifying a school, and me being one of the children in early childhood days, running as the bell rang. Also, in a desert saw some person totally unknown to me signifying me, and accidentally dropped a child from my hand from the copter, and it felt like I lost my child. I woke up in tears. After few years, listening to Beyonce's Halo gives me vision like I am running in lush green fields, somewhere in Europe. And Polina Gagarina's lullaby signifies a loss that occurred years and years ago. All of this, freaks me out

Puttin' On The Ritz. The version I remember though had a large female chorus singing the "Dressed up like a million-dollar trooper. Tryin' hard to look like Gary Cooper." lines. Might have been from the 1930's. I believe there might have been a man singing the verses, too. None of the versions I found on YouTube sounded like the version I remember. Maybe it was a live version I can recall which is why I can't find it anywhere. But it drives me insane not understanding why it feels so familiar to me. I barely ever heard the 80's version growing up. And the version in my head sounds VERY old...

Puttin’ on the Ritz is a good song. I found an original version from Fred Astaire who originally sung the song. This is the original version that Astaire record in 1930.


Though, I did find one which was recorded with Leo Reisman before Astaire here:

the first time i listened this song of guccini, i was like hypnotized.
really, i seen myself into the clothes of the old byzantine philosopher that complain the barbarian world of his age. (not much civilian too also this age).
then, doing an astrological game about PL based on birth chart i get as result the medieval age into turkey, when i was an artisan. so there was 2 coincidences too strange, also cause of my talences and personal skills.
so i guess i had at least a life into the byzantine age, also if i have not memories of that. but i love byzantine architecture, have some of familiar for me.

i past here the english translation of sing, cause i not guess you understand italian:


"The moon has risen again this evening
Drowned in too red and vague a color
Vespero is not seen, she is blurred
The tip of the stylus has broken off
What horoscope can you draw tonight, Magus?

I Philematius, a protomedian, mathematician, astronomer, perhaps a wise man
Reduced like a blind man groping around
I don't have the knowledge or the courage
To make this horoscope, to divinar response
And I stay here waiting for the day to come back

And I must say, I must say that I am perhaps too old to understand
That I have lost my mind in who knows what abuse or idleness
But the stars are changing in the nights of the equinox
Or maybe I, maybe I underestimated this new God
I read it in me and in the signs that something is changing
But it's a faint omen that doesn't say how and when ...

I was leaving the other night, almost unconsciously
Down at the port in Bosphoreion, where it gets lost
The land inside the sea to almost nothing
And then it returns to land and is no longer the West:
What does it matter to this sea to be blue or green?

I could hear the obscene songs of the drunks
Of people with a painted and empty look ...
Hippodrome, brothel and Nordic soldiers
Romans and Greeks, shout where have you gone ...
I heard cursing in alamanno and goto ...

Absurd city, strange city of this emperor, husband of a whore
Of immense plebs, labyrinths and impiety
Of barbarians who perhaps already know the truth
Of philosophers and ethereal, suspended between two worlds and between two eras ...
Luck and age have decided for a day not far off
Or fate would ask him to choose my hand, but ...

Byzantium is perhaps just an unfathomable symbol
Secret and ambiguous like this life
Byzantium is a myth that is not familiar to me
Byzantium is a dream that becomes incomplete
Byzantium perhaps never existed
And still I ignore and another night is gone
Lucifer has already risen and a little wind is blowing
Is it cold on the tower or is it my sick age
I confuse life and death and I don't know who has passed ...
I cover my head with my cloak and I no longer feel
And I fall asleep, I fall asleep, I fall asleep ..."

from that time, i did ton of searchs about this historical character that should be lived into V-VI centuries at the age of justinian but i not found much. the unique philematius i found was a first minister of the valentinian roman emperor, but he lived into III century. also, my PL un turkey should be into 825 a.D.
otherwise, i very love this character. 100% total empathy with him.

Hola, muchacho !

You could try to visit some - nearest to you - places related to Byzantium in your home Italy.
Turkey, and even Greece might be dangerous for your health.

Italy was part of the Byzantine Empire for several centuries after Rome fell and the Germanic Barbarians became dominant in the Western Europe.

When I visit Taranto and its environments, I wonder how even the priests and churches there - though undoubtedly catholic - look more like on the isle of Kerkyra (in the Western Greece) that I visited once, than here in Barcelona.

You are almost sure to get plenty of déjà-vus !

See them first on the Google Maps, and after that - in the real.

Good luck !

EhI Cyrus... that's is a nice idea! D:
well, i live on sardinia and sardinia before be ruled from strangers was part of republic of Pisa. My ancestors come from tuscany, in fact. a lot of century ago sardinia was a tuscan colony, an outpost for prevent invasions of octoman empire.
before the time of italian marine republics, here there was the byzantine empire, byzantine rules sardinia for a lot of centuries, should be some byzantine church or romanesque cathedral here. mmm let me think.
https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Storia_della_Sardegna_bizantina#Sotto_Giustiniano_(533-565)
oh, nice, we had a great history!
https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basilica_di_San_Saturnino That is on my city. if was not for covid pandemia i should get a look, maybe visit it can trigger some ancient memory.
thanks man! nice suggest! :)

i read now about che greek church architectonic style that you've seen. that is not surprising: south italy was an outpost of ancient greek civilization.
greek influences into architectures should affect also the building of medieval age, also cause there was also on south italy byzantine empire.
byzantire, at the end, was a medieval greek empire

There is also a thin layer of Aragonian-Catalonian (Aragon+Catalonia - Nort-Eastern corner of modern Spain) influence in Taranto.

E.g., the famous "Castello Aragonese" (Aragonian Castle) at the entrance of Taranto.

And the famous Spanish sauce "escabeche" which in the South Italy is called, I was said, "scappaccio".

To say nothing of a sexual practice like (sorry) "la spagnola", of course.

For me, it' really old school stuff like Gilbert and Sullivan. That would have been the popular music at the time of my previous past life.

I played piano in my life now and my previous one. I took piano lessons for a while (in this life) and one of the songs I had to learn to play was Molly Malone. I drove my teacher nuts because I played it with such a swing, when she wanted me to play it strictly with the tick tock of the metronome. She was always so frustrated with it, she was convinced I had heard my grandmother or someone else play it when I was a child.

It was one of those funny things that I remembered years later and decided to research, because I thought it may be a clue to something from my past life. It turns out Molly Malone was released in the late 1800's, right before I was born, in 1906. So no doubt, it was still in the popular culture when I was growing up. And turns out that the song is not the staccato piano staple it is these days, it's was a raucous bar song with a heavy swing, just the way I played it!

Nice! Gilbert and Sullivan! I love to read PL stories also for anthropoligical and historical purpouse. is wonderful to know how lived our ancestors.
@Cyrus yes, i see. is very byzantine the aragonian castle.
Now i understand that byzantine life will be a life into orange-yellow rock labyrinth tunnels with primitive cathedral and domed rooms.
mmm, not exactly a paradise.
however, most that castles and hagia sophia, i am curious to know about how was byzantine houses and mansions? how was the rooms?
how was the fornitures? the tables. the chairs? someone can give me an insight?

Two versions of an old French song. The Joan Baez version moves me, but the Poeme Harmonique transports me backwards in time, and has another section of the melody.
Plaisir d'amour ne dure qu'un moment,
chagrin d'amour dure toute la vie.

J'ai tout quitté pour l'ingrate Sylvie,
Elle me quitte et prend un autre amant.
Plaisir d'amour ne dure qu'un moment,
chagrin d'amour dure toute la vie.

"Tant que cette eau coulera doucement
vers ce ruisseau qui borde la prairie,
je t'aimerai", me répétait Sylvie,
l'eau coule encor, elle a changé pourtant.

Plaisir d'amour ne dure qu'un moment,
chagrin d'amour dure toute la vie.

I've adopted "Be Still" by the Killers as my theme song, because it fits with and reminds me of the past life I remember the most. Another of their songs, "Heart of a Girl," is also special to me, because it reminds me of my daughter in that life.

Once a Marine, always a Marine
Oldies from late 50ties early 60ties by the Beach Boys, Everly Brothers, the Tokens, the Righteous Brothers, Brenda Lee... for my last past life.
Russian imperial hymn to Catherine the Great seems so familiar I could almost sing it when I hear it. Also Don Cossacks songs could make me cry. For my PL in Russia in the late 18th century.

This song always reminds me painfully of my WW2 past life. Don’t know exactly what it is about it: It’s the voice of the singer, the scenery in the video and the lyrics combined (it’s about losing someone close and living on without them).
Just like the memories of my WW2 past life, to me this song conveys the realization that life is precious and not to be taken for granted. Especially life in peace and prosperity is something one should be always grateful for.


The lyrics of the following song make me think of a friend from another past life who became an opponent and then died before there was a chance for us to reconcile. Wish there was another way than fighting each other…

Maybe it doesn't mean anything, but for some reason, sometimes when I'm busy minding my own business, the song Reach Out (I'll be There) (1966) by the Four Tops will just pop into my head out of nowhere, and I'll eventually notice that I'm humming it.


When I write music, the music itself always comes easily, but the lyrics never do. If I force them, they just seem terrible to me, and wrong.
If I get myself into a meditative state, I can get them to come more easily...and it never feels like I'm actually *writing* lyrics, it feels more like someone else wrote the song and I'm just remembering how it goes.
I've always liked songs that tell a story, and most of mine, while not directly based on past-life memories, feel like they very likely could be.

...Zombie by the cranberries...
The third Cranberries album, To the Faithful Departed, really resonates with me...I don't know if some of the songs are intended to be about past lives, but something about that album just makes me feel like I might've been very close with Dolores in a previous lifetime(s).

It hit me pretty hard when she died.
