Modest Mouse- "Cowboy Dan"
Got Me 2 Rock n Roll doctor and Dirty Women
Back in April of this year, I made my mother a CD-R of songs that I hoped that she would enjoy and one of the songs that I threw on it was Bing Crosby's "Blue Skies", from the wonderfully mastered CD by Steve Hoffman, called "Bing Crosby Sings Again" on DECCA/MCA. A month later, she laid dying and I was there at her side, as that CD kept playing over and over and ever since this song has been haunting me. I only know that when I look at a blue sky, which is rare around these parts this time of year, that it will remind me of this song and her. "Nothing but blue skies ... from now on" ...
[QUOTE="Space Station "5" Montrose
This thread recognizes that people who love music are often overcome by the passion of a particular moment which takes them to a peak where no other song exists for them at that moment, in a sense (in another sense of course songs are related to one another and make intentional and unintentional allusions). Also they become enraptured with things for a while, maybe days or weeks, and then move on to something else which claims more of their attention. I'm not sure if I'm conveying the idea clearly but, in other words, one's "favorite song" is often a thing of the moment.
Thus, post a "favorite" as often as you like!
I searched and didn't find an existing "favorite song" thread, which seems impossible. But I hope the other one which I am sure exists asks for a longitudinal judgment, and this one asks for a momentary judgment. If it is a duplicate, then go ahead and let me have it.[/QUOTE]
The Sheepdogs--I Don't Know
In a better world, this would have tens of millions of views instead of thousands.
It’s a tie:
Dark Politics by The Electric Six
The Woodpile by Frightened Rabit
Gary Numan - My Name is Ruin
His little girl Persia is singing on the song and is also in the music video.
The Drifters - On Broadway
My jam right now...
(At 3:18 it’s the aural embodiment of late Sunday afternoon Summer sun blasting through my rear window like shards of hot crystalline lava)
Interesting, I'll play!
Iron Maiden - Infinite Dreams
I won't choose. You can't make me.
'Riders On The Storm' by The Doors.
It's on my headphones right now.
Kings X - Summerland
"You Wreck Me" by Tom and the HB's - I'm thinking of my dear friend Liz VDK.
Twilight by The Band because I just figured out how to play/sing it.
The John Doe Thing, "Beer, Gas, Ride Forever"
"Spread It On Thick" by The Gentrys - probably the best garage rock single of the 60s
Humble Pie "Hot 'n Nasty"
Vanessa Fernandez - "Here But I'm Gone" off her "Use Me" album. A great track and but the recording is fantastic.
