Music that reminds you of a certain game/gaming period

Wasn't sure if I should put this into this forum or the music forum, but basically I was just asking if anybody has any music that reminds them of a certain gaming period/specific game, or if they have a certain game that reminds them of any specific music?

For me, I can't play Doom 2 without thinking of Nirvana's Nevermind or Weezer's blue album. The games and music are tied to each other for me, as I was always listening to those CDs when I played it in the mid-90s.

Another "marriage" for me is Skies of Arcadia, and Smashing Pumpkins' Mellon Chollie and the Infinite Sadness. That became my "Goto CD" while playing that game.

A final one I can think of right now is the first Resident Evil game and the Presidents of the United States' 1st CD. I know it's a stupid CD, but in 7th grade, for some reason, I was listening to it while going through the Courtyard in RE1, and it's stuck with me ever since. Anytime I hear any of that music, the memories come flooding back. Good times.
