Old Kentucky Home- Randy Newman - I don't know how many crimes he commits during the whole song.

Tempted by Squeeze- my little sister had choreographed actions for this song. Dang good melody

Standing on the Corner- Dean Martin- never has sleazy sounded so wholesome -

Broken / Head Over Heels/ Broken(live) - Brian Pearson used this as the music to our grad slideshow. Well "Broken" anyway. It really takes me back to being a love struck guy just looking for an excuse to start a conversation.

Knights in White Satin- Moody Blues -have you ever heard anything so haunting?

Take 5 - Dave Brubeck - iconic jazz number , excellent drum solo. 4 guys playing at once. Sax, piano, upright bass and drums

Crying in the Chapel- Elvis Presley. Elvis and company took a risk doing something so religious

Burning Love- Elvis last Top 10 hit. 5 Years before his death . Matthew was 3 and we were in Hotel lobby in Bangkok. He was on my lap and his parents were stuck in Bangkok traffic. I sung it to him and kept him calm. Will never forget it.

Just Another Soap Box Supertramp - listen to the song , hard to describe listen to song, read comments.

Night and Day - Frank Sinatra song , Cole Porter composition

YYZ- Rush ear candy . 3 guys playing well.

Lyin Eyes- The Eagles.

You Won't See Me= Beatles- From Rubber Soul. A song that 200 other Beatles fans will not pick.

Honky Tonk Women- by the Rolling Stones funky in its own way

Joe's Garage- Frank Zappa just a fun song. Fast forward to about minute 3.

Biggest ball of twine in Minnesota by Weird Al This song is so good that a video would just take away from it's strengths.CRank up the volume but just imagine story in your head.

I'll be gone - Tom Waits - Tom Waits has a gravely voice, demented melodies and that makes him an acquired taste. The video I found was of someone covering the song and bravo to him. Just a voice and guitar and it sounds great. To imagine the Tom Waits version, picture you are visiting a jail and there is this deranged criminal who sees you and tries to convince you to set him free as if his life depended on it. You might have an idea of the mood of the Tom Waits voice.

Bob Seger - pre Risky Business Live Old Time Rock and Roll. If an alien asked me what was rock and roll. This song would be up there as the poster tune .

Lyle Lovett- Closing Time. he has a beautiful voice, writes excellent songs and has both serious and zany lyrics. This is a lovely tender ballad. with the lyrics" Closing time unplug those people send them home it''s closing time" so true.

Garth Brooks- the Dance . One of the biggest selling artists ever despite being almost unknown outside of North America. A song that has tugged on many heartstrings.

Where were you when I need you - Stevie Wonder-

Joe Jackson- medley of Be My Number Two/ Breaking Us In Two. Live in Tokyo emotional.

Hang Em High- Booker T. and MGs. - organ just sounds so good and full of soul.

Led Zeppelin - No Quarter -atmospheric. If the video reminds you of Spinal Tap, probably not a coincidence.

Bob Dylan - Highway 61 - crazy , Dylan lyrics at a fever pitch

Steely Dan- Black Cow "I can't cry anymore" Just from the intro. Studio version better than the clip

Telegraph Road- Dire Straits epic song , jamming towards the end.

Romeo and Juliet - Dire Straits makes me cry if I am in the mood.

Mistral Wind by Heart - another haunting song that just takes you places. Foreshadowing doom and dread.

Cousin Kevin -The Who with all the zillion 5 Star Who songs and I picked this one? I am a sucker for bridges with harmonies. The Youtube video is from the movie is disturbing but nowhere near as musical.
