Songs You Love

Sat Jun 16, 2012 5:05 am

While everyone is listing all the songs they HATE, I thought it might be a good idea to give everyone an opportunity to tell some songs they really like, and why

Here's a couple of my "nominees"....................

Troglodite.............Jimmy Castor Bunch Same as below

Bertha Butt Boogie.........Jimmy Castor Bunch Hard to explain; listen to it and you'll know why I like it

Alley Opp.............Hollywood Argyles How can one guy record a tune six times, different instruments, and sound
like a whole group, (and make you laugh your ass off ?)

Take A Chance On Me........Abba Of all their great songs, this one is the BEST

Cherrio, Cherrio Baby...........UB 40 These guys ROCK !

Do The Funky Chicken...........Rufus Thomas Rufus is a Gas !

Volcano & Margaritaville...........Jimmy Buffett Jimmy's two best songs

Up Around The Bend & Heard It Through The Grapevine...........CCR ( I love all CCR stuff )

OB-LA-DI, OB-LA-DA................Beatles I really can't stand the Beatles, but for this tune I can make an exception !

It's Just A Matter Of Time..............Brook Benton How could anyone NOT love to hear B.B. sing ?

Forbidden Games.........By Narciso Yepes Bruno Batista D'Amario, Guitar If you love guitar, you'll LOVE this !

The list is too long for this thread, and it changes over time, but a few off the top of my head and from the recent past:

This will without doubt be played as a golden oldie 50, 70 years from now. Happy memories for me as it reminds me of the time I met my current squeeze, (which he now sings and plays on his guitar) and (no doubt because of the video) Cuba, even though it wasn't out at the time.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e2oRqyn7ToQ
This is such a feelgood track it never fails to put a smile on my face and give me a lift.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mY02Tz5cHlo
Can't understand why this track wasn't a major international hit! Even Lou Reed liked it enough to record a version.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8UVNT4wvIGY
Loved this from the time I first heard it, which is unusual. It's just a terrific song.

Sends a few shivers up my spine, and again a future classic.

She has many detractors, which is only par for the course for someone so successful, and I had great hopes for her until she released her last album, but I never get tired of this, no matter how much it's played.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TJAfLE39ZZ8
Another classic, and her best track IMHO.

The title of this track says it all . . . another tune to put me in good form! Soon as I hear the intro I get a lift . . .

Elegantly Wasted (the entire album)- INXS
Remedy- Seether
Tonight- Seether
Suicide Blonde/Disappear- INXS
About a Girl- Nirvana (especially the Unplugged version)
Poundcake- Van Halen (yes, I think they had some good stuff with Hagar too!)
Take a Stand- Triumph
U2's Joshua Tree album (actually I like anything of theirs before about 2000...after that it's just individual songs that I like)
Midwest Airlines- 1984-2010
