I am sick and tired of reading politics today and need a break from it. Post your favorite tuneage her! Turn up your speakers and enjoy!
I'll start of with the Scorpions "Acoustica" recorded live in front of an audience in Lisbon, Portugal and released in 2001. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acoustica_(Scorpions_album)

Fleetwood Mac is touring again this year and I’m taking a trip to Atlanta in June to see them! So excited.
Yes - Soon [Live 2002]
by The Sushi Cabaret Club
Welcome To The Jungle
by Richard Cheese
It makes No Difference — The Band at “The Last Waltz”
(I think they’re singing about our two party system.)
I thought that was what Simon and Garfunkle were singing about in Mrs. Robinson
Sitting on a sofa on a Sunday afternoon
Going to the candidates debate
Laugh about it, shout about it
When you’ve got to choose
Ev’ry way you look at it, you lose
What a sweet song/memory. Thanks! :)
Anything by the Black Keys, for example:
The Black Keys - “She’s Long Gone”
P.S. (I don’t know what their politics are, though.)
When the cold of winter comes
starless night will cover day.
In the veiling of the sun
we will walk in bitter rain.
But in dreams....
I can hear your name.
And in dreams....
We will meet again.
I’m Not In Love- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nhZrKVPcqEg&list=WL6823D2CA773AD911
Open Your Heart- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-xHVzC3uFps
Let Me Love You- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bmhfkcFUV9E
But seriously, OK you want a song that is very good with or without politics? Hint: This guy was featured in a recent movie
You Can’t Be Too Strong- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3fsFy3M5jg0
I also like this:
For Another Man- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2QLh-WDgcrw
Unfortunately I have way too many songs to put in one post. You see, I have a few info centers in my brain, music, political, movies, video games, sometimes history, and maybe books. Just a 26 year old who wants to be a FM radio DJ.
Danny Gatton (guitar) and Joey DeFrancesco (Hammond B3 organ)
“Blues On The Half Shell”
I might as well admit this but I have Levon Helm’s drumsticks from a show he played in Annapolis years ago. I was actually underage but a big fan of The Band. The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down is maybe one of my favorite songs.
But a great obscure song by them: Caledonia Mission- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w0VpvwmKoWs.
You mean like Stevie Nicks, Debra Harry, Grace Slick or Wanda Jackson?
I only clicked it one time. I swear.
Several friends had birthdays last week, they rented a party bus and did a pub crawl of all the dive bars in town. This one was popular in practically every one of them:
Kid Rock & Hank Williams, Jr. - “Cadillac P***y”
It’s on the bawdy side, if you can’t tell from the name, so be warned lol.
“Howlin’ For You” pretty damm good though. Been hoping they won’t be a one hit wonder but sadly nothing better yet.
Thank you!! My favorite band at one point. These are some gems I didn’t even know were out there. Need to get a copy of this to put on my phone.
Velvet Underground: I Can´t Stand it. (recorded 1969, released 1985)
Every track on both Brothers and El Camino is good, imho.
My pleasure, Diana. That song always makes me feel like dancing with that special someone on a big ballroom dance floor. :)
I’ve always loved the opening fanfare to “Sweet Jane.”
I thought the Black Keys were the new return of real Rock and Roll with Howlin’. The rest is head banger metal rock IMHO.
I like the hook on Howlin’ like I do on “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking” and “The Ocean”, two of the greatest ever.
Led Zeppelin - “Tangerine”
Always loved them, the first music I bought as a child. My personal favorite is this one, written by Jimmy Page, inspired by Jackie DeShannon, with whom he was involved in the mid-sixties during his Yardbirds days.
The sound is difficult to pin down, it’s got a little medieval chamber music thing going on as much Led Zeppelin does, but it veers fairly seamlessly into country rock, lol. It’s a surprising song and one of their more low key ones, at that.
That’s why I like them - their music is reminiscent of the music when I was growing up. We agree on Howlin’, but I think the other tracks sound more like blues than head banger music. / JMHO
It just so happens that I’ve been listening to The Black Keys lately, but there is much more music that I enjoy. But, it would take me all night to list everything. Some great stuff posted here on this thread.
Mellow! Is it Rock? yes it has the hook.
but only when you are making out with your girlfriend under the pool table at her parent’s house in 10th grade.
She had such a wonderful voice. Such a loss....
