You know when you've had a few beers and listen to certain songs that you can just lost in, maybe whiling away the late hours, singing to your hearts content and not giving a dam if anyone's listening to your version ? Well I have a couple that always whisk me away:

Energy 52 'cafe del mar' and Barbers 'Argio de strings'

Which one's do you listen to when all you can think of is that track and gives you that feel good vibe ?

'King of the Road' by Roger Miller does it for me.

There are soooo many:

Lately - Stevie Wonder
As We Lay - Shirley Murdock
Maggie May - Rod Stewart
Oliver's Army - Elvis Costello
among loads of others.

But just lately, a song I can't get enough of is called 'E Paia' by a New Zealand band called Adeaze. Now you have to bear in mind that the song is sung in Samoan, and as I don't speak a word of the language, listening to me sing to it to my heart's content is quite an event!

Quoting ABfemme (Thread starter):
'Argio de strings'

That would be Samuel Barber's "Adagio for Strings." I have several different recordings of that. Good stuff. Bach's "Air on the G String" is another - but really only when arranged for full orchestra.

There are a few for me, some of them are recent some are older tracks. Also some are relatively embarrassing but I don't care!  Wink

Each of these songs represent certain events in the past year or so, but each of them good events.

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Scar Tissue
Sugababes - Push The Button
Scissor Sisters - Filthy/Gorgeous
Mariah Carey - We Belong Together
Glenn Lewis - Don't You Forget It
Herd, Fitz ft. Abigail Bailey - I Just Cant Get Enough
Wallen - L'Oliver

U2: Sometimes you can't make it on your own
The Killers: Smile like you mean it

Both bring back memoroes of a great holiday to Malaysia and Australia, both playing as we approached MAN in 9M-MPB, the final leg of the journey.

"I Want You (She's So Heavy)" - the Beatles

Crank the volume and bass and lay on the floor. It'll fix your sore back by the time it's finished.

I have a digital music player that has an FM transmitter that I use with my car's radio. I crank up the music and sing away. I try not to sing to forcefully during the day otherwise other drivers and pedestrians think you're a nut case but at night or on the open road there is nothing stopping me.

Lately I have been listening and singing to
-U2's Elevation and All because of you
-Radiohead's Paranoid Android and Karma Police
-Electric light Orchestra's Evil Woman and Don't bring me down
-Coldplay's Clocks and Scientist (an English friend of mine would sing these out of tune in the office every day despite requests from others to stop)

Groove Armada's At The River is a classic one for me, I could listen to it all day. Also another couple of my favourites are Cafe Del Mar Energy 52, Barber's Adagio For Strings - William Orbit version and Paul Van Dyke's For An Angel.

"I Want You (She's So Heavy)"

Dude - I knew you were on my RU list for good reason. McCartney absolutely steals that tune, and Lennon is phenomenal on that track, so that tells you what I think about Paul's bassline. He has been totally underated as a bass player.

It really is a mantra piece.

Try "Here Comes the Sun." McCartney on bass and Harrison on the harmonium. It's a regular window rattler.

Anybody "owns" Chris Joss's last year album "Spiked"?

Groovy beyond belief. Excellent quality. Definitely an album you lose yourself in; with the Gin' n'tonic buzz? Heaven. Best tracks? All of them, but if you insist, try "Waves of love", and "You've been Spiked" though high-quality Senheisers...
