A song that sends me back onto a boat

I've always associated certain songs with certain times and locations.
"DON'T LET ME DOWN GENTLY," by THE WONDER STUFF, is a case in point.
I hear the 1989 single and I am transported to a sunny, warm day on a boat on the MISSISSIPPI RIVER, shortly after JILL and I were married.
I hear the song now, and I seem to still see the boat cutting through the water.
My raging SPRING FEVER led me to play the Wonder Stuff on iTunes today. There might be lingering rain showers or snow flurries today, but once the playlist hits "Don't Let Me Down Gently," I know I'll be back on that boat -- far away from winter.
