Sadly, many of the entries in this topic have since been taken down by YouTube. Copyright / piracy issues, I guess.

I especially miss the great version of Hotel California that I had linked to.

I'm not exactly up to speed with You Tube, but I wondered if you could just go there and search for the clip?

I'll try that again!

Having just had an ipod touch from Santa I have been busy putting my playllists together and to only choose 3 is torture but here goes...

Santana -  Samba pa ti , takes me back to the 70s when I saw them in my teens at Bingham Hall Staffs

Jimmy Radcliffe - Long after tonight is all over, good old Northern Soul, for my sister's 40th she stipulated that the only music to be played all night was Northern Soul (I did manage to twist the DJ's arm and he put an Erasure track on much to her disgustCool)

and for a bit of classical ......Tchaikovsky piano concerto No 1 in B Flat minor, nothing like a good bit of piano bashing!

how's that for a mixed batch?

Feeling a bit maudlin this evening, I revisited some of my favourites from my late teens. Living by myself in a small bedsit in the city, age 18+, these were some of the tracks that accompanied my teenage angst in those years!

I so envied Kris Kristofferson and just wanted to be him. But I couldn’t. Next best was droning along to some of his tracks. Later, just over a dozen years ago, living in Epsom, this was my Sunday afternoon karaoke performance in my favourite little bar, Casper’s: Me and BobbyMcgee from 1971

Glen Campbell looks so corny in this vid but I knew all the words – just couldn’t reach the high notes: Rhinestone Cowboy

The smoky voice of Elkie Brooks captured my heart but this was the only song of hers that I liked enough to sing. She was just too bluesy for me. This is one great track, though: Pearl’s a Singer

I have got to say that three of my favorites of all time are,

1 Fast Car ..  Tracy Chapman . memories of my final year at school.

2 Sister Golden Hair ..  America . Just a down right cool tune.

3 The River ..  Joni Mitchel . The first time I heard it it made me cry.

I have many more three is a harsh number to whittle down too. All available to listen to on youtube, hope you like them x

Thread has been dormant for some time. It's also a stressful and tedious period in my day job.

This evening, Fiona went to bed very early. I did some chores and then decided to revisit my playlist for the first time in a few months. We do not have music playing in the cottage, normally.

I think maybe we should change that.

These are not original links, just my mood of the evening.

Being a country boy at heart, I chose John Denver's voice first. I guess (when I am in country mood) this is one of my top 5. Country Roads.

But country music can be a bit of a downer, so to raise the beat, I played a track from Dusty Springfield. What an upbeat singer she was!

Dusty Springfield - Son of a preacher man

To end my initial trio, and keep the upbeat momentum from the classics, who better than Aretha with her 60's racial equality special:

Respect - Aretha Franklin

That Dusty Sprindfield track is one of my all time favourites! I have refrained from joining in this thread for a long time because picking three tracks is just too hard! But the boss is away today and I can't be bothered with any work.

Unfortunately this means I don't have access to youtube, as my office have blocked it, so ye shall have to search for any of these yourself if you fancy them.

1. Hurt (originally by Nine Inch Nails) covered by Johnny Cash. This song makes me cry. Particularly when it was used in the WWE tribute to Eddie Guerrero (I like wrestling, ok? I know it's not cool, or high brow. but it's fun, and I won't apologise).

2. Baby I love you (no idea who it's originally by) coverd by The Ramones. This gets stuck in my head all the time, and makes me smile (also occasionally dance at odd times).

3. Saturday Night by the Misfits. I adore the misfits. Picking a favourite song by them is extremely difficult. It was this or Resurrection. But they're all good. Listening to the misfits makes me grin like i'm demented and dance like a fool. Good times.

But there are so many more tracks I love, for different moods and different times of day…

(Danny says: Rae, I just added links for your picks.)

I'll offer up these 3 in no particular order, and I want you all to know I struggled to get it down to 3:

Barenaked Ladies: If I had a Million Dollars: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rjvapPF8wlg This one's dangerous for me to listen to on headphones because I always end up singing along.

And now I must go browse all your music links. Thanks in advance!

Heh. I'm such a huge A3 fan they can do no wrong. I have happy memories of seeing them do that live in concert. I got goose bumps :)

Rae - I love Mr Cash's version of Hurt - so much feeling in one song.
