I'll have to tell my grandfather that as he enjoy to hear that as he was a trumpet player who played with the big bands including the Dorsey Brothers. I like jazz from that era but mostly stuff a bit newer such as Miles Davis. As for rock my taste is all over the place. Perhaps the Who "My Generation" and Radiohead "Paranoid Android" would come out as tops.
Yeah, anything Queen did was great. Its so sad that Freddy Mercury passed. He was so great. I have been listening to another one that I loved..(but I love all his songs actually)
There's also some last interview videos on utube that are worth watching. I enjoyed watching the videos but its still sad. But the nice thing about recordings, we always have a part of that person to enjoy and he still lives on in our lives whenever we listen to his recordings.
oh yeah Bohemian Rhapsody rocks....
I like a lot of Santana songs to
As far as Rock songs, hard pick but a few of my all time favs..
Ball and Chain - Janice Joplin
Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen
Since I've Been Loving You - Led Zepplin
Once-Pearl Jam...Actually anything from the 'Ten' album.
United States National Anthem-Various Artists
Stuck with 2 because I really have too many to list that I could consider my favorites. You know ones that I never change the radio station for, that I seach my CD's for and will always be on my iPod.
You're a Big Girl Now - Bob Dylan
One (One love, we get to share it, leaves you baby if you don't care for it) - U2
there are more but these two are on my mind right now
I love most types of music old and new except heavy metal ,jazz and rap! I download so much stuff!As i have a lousy memory i dont know the names of the songs or who sings them ~~~ my CD player goes on everyday!! I play it suit my moods!!!
All Along the Watchtower - Jimi Hendrix
Like a Rolling Stone - Bob Dylan
My Back Pages (I was so much older then I'm younger than that now) - Bob Dylan
My all time favorite is Israel Kamakawiwo'ole's Over the Rainbow. It just melts my heart. I'm not normally a country music lover but Lee Anne Womack's I Hope You Dance is a song I live by and hope to dance with my son at his wedding. Otherwise I'm a '70's and '80's rock lover.
My all time fav song are
Girls just wanna have fun by Cyndi Lauper
and Stardust by Nat King Cole
My reasons, well i just adore cyndi lauper and anytime i hear thei song i just start to smile and dance
and stardust it was my grandparents bridal waltz and we played it at their funerals, if i could have alove like that i would be happy.
That's great!! I played in a jazz band for three years (alto sax). It was really fun, I was the only one under 50 in it though. I have a decent record collection from the 20's to 40's. About 200 records in all!! Picked most of them up from the back of old antique shops. I have to listen to them on vinyl, it's more authentic.
I love those two songs too. I have so many of the big band era and also lots of videos I have recorded from PBS featuring them,. I think they are the greatest.
My dad used to play in the big bands, one was with Clyde McCoy, their theme song was Sugar Blues.
oh yeah someone said Nirvana love the song Lithium
My all time favorite is
"Mere Idea of You" by Doris Day
"Yes Indeed!" by Tommy Dorsey
I've loved early 20's, 30's music since I was very young. Something about the way they sang and played back then just had so much more soul and depth...

Sir Elton John and Billy Joel are coming to Minneapolis!!!! Wouldnt that be a kick a$$ concert!!!!
"I Can Only Imagine" by MercyMe. That's my all-time favorite song, although I have tons of other favorites.
King Crimson people!!!!! The song Epitaph is just unbelievably deep!!! :)
Please, please, someone, listen to that song or I'll have a heart attack!!!

The Outlasw, Mooly Hatchet..Lynard Zknyard
Ooh, Led Zeppelin`s Kashmir is really good, I agree. And Enya, oh yes! And Marvin Gaye gets to me... And I did listen to Creedence Clearwater Revival a lot.
If I have to choose two though for the majority of my moods, it would be:
1. Old fashioned swing of the 1930s - anything by the Boswell Sisters
2. Anything by Nirvana
Your so Vain....Carly simon
Grape Vine........Marvin Gaye
To Close to Jupiter...Train
Pour Some Sugar On Me....Def Leppard
