Music is closely tied to my memories. Each song acts as a marker for both the good and bad, and discovering new sounds paves the way for new memories to be had.
Being a better person - Pick up the peice of garbage instead of walking over it, be conciously courteous to the people that I meet day to day, and help more people without reward. I believe that if millions of people each take just a few minutes out of their busy day for some sort of selfless act when presented with the opportunity, those acts combined can be enough to change the world. Maybe I'm a dreamer, but it's definitely a goal of mine to be one of those people.
In The End - Linkin Park. Definitely the first 'gateway' song that led me toward my current musical tastes. This song came out as a single on the radio when I was in the third grade, and it became the first song that I completely memorized the lyrics to due to over playing it.
