Souvenir(s) may also refer to:
A '''souvenir ''' (from French, for a remembrance or memory), memento, keepsake, or token of remembrance is an object a person acquires for the memories the owner associates with it. A souvenir can be any object that can be collected or purchased and transported home by the traveler as a memento of a visit. While there is no set minimum or maximum cost that one is required to adhere to when purchasing a souvenir, etiquette would suggest to keep it within a monetary amount that the receiver would not feel uncomfortable with when presented the souvenir. The object itself may have intrinsic value, or simply be a symbol of past experience. Without the owner's input, the symbolic meaning is invisible and cannot be articulated.
Souvenir are an indie pop/ electropop band formed in 1999 in Pamplona, Spain, who have released six studio albums.
Souvenir is the only album to date by the Slovenian transvestite trio Sestre. Although there is a Discography section at the back of the album sleeve notes, this is only a joke and the group only have released this album as well as the "Samo Ljubezen" single.
One notable thing about this album is that although it only features ten songs, each one is different in terms of style and taste. Most of the tracks segue into each other. This album features the song "Samo Ljubezen" which the group performed at the Eurovision Song Contest 2002.
Due to the nature of Sestre themselves there is a slight gay nature to the album, but there is no obvious gay link to the music.
Their song "Samo Ljubezen" was number 1 in the Slovenian charts for five weeks. The second track on the album "Latina Bambina" was played a few times on Slovenian radio and it was intended to be a follow up record to "Samo Ljubezen", however this was not pursued for some reason.
This album is mainly in the Slovenian language but it does feature parts in other languages too.
The final track "Together Forever" has been mistaken on a few occasions as being the English version of "Samo Ljubezen", however it is not. The English version of "Samo Ljubezen" remains unreleased as the band and most of the people involved with the recording did not like the way it sounded in English.
The album includes lyrics printed in the sleeve notes, however they appear to have quite severe typing errors.
"Souvenir" is a song written by Paul Humphreys and Martin Cooper of Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark and released as the first single from their 1981 album Architecture & Morality. Sung by Humphreys, the track has minimal lyrical content and is characterised by slowed-down choir sounds offset by pulsing major key piano chords. Its "gentle, sparkling" synthesizer hook substitutes for a vocal chorus, as with other OMD compositions.
"Souvenir" became a major international hit for the band. Peaking at number 3 on the UK Singles Chart, it remains the group's highest-charting single in their home country, along with 1991's " Sailing on the Seven Seas". The song also reached the Top 10 in several European territories, including topping the charts in France, Spain and Portugal.
Having gained little mainstream airplay in recent years, "Souvenir" has been described as a forgotten classic within popular music. In the New Musical Express/ Uncut publication 501 Lost Songs, the track was lauded as a "classic piece of early '80s melancholy." Dave Thompson in AllMusic wrote: "OMD at their most luminescent, 'Souvenir' was a permanent memento of the group's early power." Critic Ned Raggett praised Humphreys' vocal, as well as the mid-song instrumental break.
Erasure vocalist Andy Bell has said that he is always moved to tears upon hearing "Souvenir".

Souvenir is a 1989 British drama film directed by Geoffrey Reeve and starring Christopher Plummer, Catherine Hicks and Michael Lonsdale. It was based on the novel The Pork Butcher by David Hughes. Forty years after the Second World War, an ex-German soldier returns as an American to a French village in which atrocities were committed by the Nazis, during which his then French lover was murdered. The film, like the book, is an attempt to attribute and assuage patent and discreet levels of guilt.

Souvenir is a serif typeface designed in 1914 by Morris Fuller Benton for American Type Founders. It was loosely based on Schelter-Antiqua and Schelter-Kursiv, a 1905 Art Nouveau type issued by the J.G. Schelter & Giesecke foundry in Leipzig. It has a much softer look than other old style faces, with a generally light look, rounded serifs, and very little contrast between thick and thin strokes. Like Cheltenham, it shows the influence of the Arts and Crafts Movement without belonging to a specific historical style. A 1970s redesign by Ed Benguiat, adding extra styles and an italic, became far more popular than the initial release, and is the source of most versions sold today.
At the time of its issue it achieved only a moderate popularity but was known as "the printer's friend" because of its forgiving qualities on press. In the 1970s, because of its friendly, curving structure, it became very popular in uses such as in body text of educational material and for headings in book printing. Historians have described it as 'laid-back', 'the friendliest of Benton's designs' and as 'like Times Roman dipped in chocolate'.
