Your all-time favorite songs (fluffy)

If you could name 10 of your fave songs of all time, what would they be? WTF is with this french accent $hit???? Please, somebody please please tell me how to turn off the french crap on my keyboard. I would like a question mark, not an accent!!!!!!

I am having a pleasant musical evening on my iphone and am listening to a wide variety of new and old. I could never narrow it to just 10 songs, so feel free to expand past 10 if you need to Smile

I do not really have a musical favorite, but I did want to say that I do not see any accents in your posts.

down on the right side of the computer (by the time) there is a keyboard icon, if you click on it the options are US, Canadian French and Canadian Multilingual Standard. Click on US and you are good to go, and for the record I do not see accents either.

Summer of 69 (huge Bryan Adams fan)
Hotel California
Bring Him Home (Les Miz)
Your Still the One
Truly, Madly, Deeply
Forever Young
I got you babe (Sean sings it to me and I love it)
Bohemian Rhapsody

If all time probably Mark McGuinn If the World Was Mine
After that, it kind of fluctuates. I drive my 16 YO crazy because I listen to the same 80 min CD over and over and over again. She even asked me if I ever get tired of it. Nope.

So right now:
David Nail Strangers on a Train, Red Light, Sound of a Million Dreams

Mark McGuinn Til U Got Home
Rascal Flatts Feels Like Today
Alphaville Forever Young and Impossible Dream

U2 One
Greenday Time of Your Life
Reba & Vince Gill The Heart Won't Lie
are sometimes on my list.

I remember being pretty young, sitting in the back of my parents' car listening to Afternoon Delight on the radio, and thinking it must have been some kind of dessert. Seriously.

Aw Freddie! I think we'd have a blast in Seattle. I have Easy Street Records in my fb feed and it is so inspiring to hear about all the concerts going on there!

Me too. But my favorite song is Crush.

I got to interview Dave, Boyd, and Carter years ago and it was an amazing experience. I have a huge crush on Dave which made it even more fun, but mostly I got to talk to them about making all their videos & got great stories out of them. They were all so nice! I love them and I loved Dave's solo album too.

Crush is also my fave DMB song and Dave is super cute. Definitely in my top 10.

So we can go to a DMB concert all together it seems.

Most of those things on my top 10 list are there because of working out, thats the main time I listed to my iPod Smile In reality I listen to much more mellow music. I probably own every Dylan, Springsteen and Grateful Dead album out there, though I burnt out on Dylan and the GD after about 20 years and dead tour etc. These days I'm listening to a lot of Avett brothers, Mumford and sons, Bonnie Raitt, Patty Griffin etc etc.

With one notable exception* I have rarely been to a concert that I did not enjoy even when I had no idea who the group was or what kind of music they played, even sometimes when I didn't particularly like the "hit song" on the radio I've enjoyed a concert. I just love the experience of live music -- the synergy of the musicians together on stage and how the band and the audience interact, even two shows of the same act on two different nights are completely different experiences. So I'd probably be game for a concert with any of you. Except maybe country music, I can't stand country, but might be willing to try if it involved pg.org buddies. Wink

* it was an act at an outdoor music festival in 1993, in between the evening opener and closer, and the music was just awful. The guy couldn't sing, the lyrics were terrible, even the music wasn't that great if you could ignore the vocals, it seemed like the drummer & bassist were playing a different song than the guitarist & singer. Pretty much everyone on the field got up & wandered out to use the restroom, get a drink or food, check on their kids in the play area, etc. We actually bought one of their CDs to take home, thinking maybe they just had a bad show. Nope. They were really that bad.
