Hey Tony, I checked out every page of...
...your web site. Your site is absolutely outstanding. Man, I'm sure lookin' at that 502 Lightning. I mean it would be awsome to just "half throttle" out of a stop light and couldn't even tell whether that blown Mustang (that was beside you at the light) was racing you or not...LOL
Gotta be some of the early stuff
though not the very earliest. Something about the Buddy Holly era songs have to be my favorites because of their simplicity. I really can't pick one but maybe a sub category in the genre. I liked folk and folk rock later on but never the hard stuff at all. '50s rock was corny but it was good corn to me.
You mean like this ?
wontcha be my Baby
Isn't that Country? Or Rockabilly?
I wouldn't call it Rock.
But I think the question is impossible to answer. At least I can't pick a fave. If I picked one I'd probably get sick of it and miss the others.
But it was still Rock & Roll then:)
Ok, Another one.........
Justa hank of hair and a piece of bone
Yep, nothing like those great lyrics.
Glory Days by Springsteen and
The Rose by Bette Midler.
Course one of my real favorites is the "Sanitarium Blues" by Townes Van Zandt. and "The Azzhole Song' by Johnny Paycheck I think
(NT) Stairway to heaven
(NT) any song by the shangri-las
:) good pick
Thanks Mark, and all, for your choices.
Coincidentally, was listening to a show Sunday night here, "Little Steven's Underground Garage" - he played some great stuff from that era, was the anniversary of The Beatles' Ed Sullivan appearances. He gives a lot of trivia in between the songs, interesting "back stories", too. At the time I was too young, but I still love the fifties, sixties stuff.
You just HAVE to
keep rubbing it in that you are too young!!! Brat!
Senile GGM here]:)
(NT) ''Whippin' Post''
So many ;-)
For many reasons, November Rain by GnR always seems to come out on top for me.
Freewill - Rush
New Year's Day - U2
Nobody's Fool - Cinderella (OK a little oddball there but)
Runaway - Bon Jovi (hey, I just like that song!)
Nothing Else Matters - Metallica (OK more a rock ballad but)
Does just about anything from Queen count?
BTW, Nickel Back's new album is quite good. I love the current hit "Photograph", but the whole CD is pretty darned good.
I don't think I could pick one song.....
....but if I had to, it would probably be Satisfaction just because it kinda wrote the book on rock & roll anger. My Generation expanded on it (and in a great way) but Satisfaction preceded it by two years.
the only Rolling Stones song I ever liked:)
Are you sure?
I'm seeing 1965 for both songs. But I am not satisfied with the online discographies. Maybe you know a good one?
I thought Satisfaction was written in '64. I know the Stones didn't break through in the US until '65 and a lot of older songs may be misdated with their US release dates. I know that happened with all the Beatles' pre-1964 songs. For example, Love Me Do was recorded in 1962 but on WCBS-FM they always dated it 1964 because that's when it was released on Capitol Records.
I also thought My Generation was '66 but I could be wrong.
