Question Number 3

I was going to rant again about something dubya said yesterday but I changed my mind. I have been thinking about my answer to question #3. Can't get it out of my head. I mentioned my struggle to provide an answer and a few artists that came to mind. I completly forgot about Eric Clapton, you know, Cream, Derek and the Dominos, that guy. I could listen to him forever. I'll stick with Howlin' Wolf but I thought you should know about Clapton.

Anywhat, that got me thinking about my top 25 all time favorite songs (as of today) so here they are:

Number 1 all time favorite - Get Over It, Eagles. The message will always be applicable (I think The Droid Whisperer still hates it).

Number 2 - Sunshine of Your Love - Clapton (Cream days)

Number 3 - Little Red Rooster - Howlin' Wolf

Number 4 - In the Mood - Glenn Miller

Number 5 - Little Red Riding Hood - Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs (dedicated to NK)

Number 6 - Unforgettable - Nat King Cole

Number 7 - Travelin' Soldier - Dixie Chicks
Number 7.5 - War - Edwin Starr (or the Boss)

Number 8 - Guess He'd Rather Be in Colorado - John Denver

Number 9 - 12th of Never - Johnny Mathis

Number 10 - Hot Rod Lincoln - Commander Cody and his Lost Planet Airmen
Number 10.5 -Down to Seeds and Stems Again Blues - Commander Cody

Number 11 - Alices Restaurant - Arlo Guthrie

Number 12 - Master of the House - Les Miserables

Number 13 - Light My Fire - Jose Feliciano (no not the Doors, this is a much better version).

Number 14 - The Artists Life - Strauss

Number 15 - Black Magic Woman - Santana

Number 16 - The Immigrant Song - Led Zepplin

Number 17 - Daddy's Little Girl - The Mills Brothers

Number 18 - Good Night Irene - Levon Helm and the RCO All Stars (A tribute to my father)

Number 19 - I Just Came Home to Count the Memories - John Anderson

Number 20 - Third Rate Romance - The Amazing Rhythm Aces

Number 21 - Riders on the Storm - The Doors.

Number 22 - I Like Beer - Tom T. Hall

Number 23 - Masters of War - Bob Dylan

Number 24 - The Thrill is Gone - B.B. King


Number 25 - Dead Skunk in the Middle of the Road - Loudon Wainwright III

There are times when I think you somehow influenced MY musical taste. (I sure didn't get it from Aunt Tuna. ABBA. Blech!
I love love love most of the songs on your top 25. I think, after my trip to Kaosland, I'm going to copy your idea and post my own 25.
And Clapton is the best. And, it's fun to try to convince Uncle B. of that!

There are so many other good songs I'm going to do a 2nd favorite list.

#'s 5,6, 7 & 7.5, 9, 11, 15, 17, 18,
21, 24 would all make my top hundred. Some my top 25. One my top 10

Great post dad. I have to go put on some music now...

My first album (well, tape) that I bought with my own money was Cream - Disraeli Gears. Awesome. And B.B King was the first concert I went to (with my parents!)! I even got to meet him!
Fantastic list!

Just so you all know, these are the songs I want played at my party (I will not have a funeral). Of course, this will not happen any time in the near future so I will add to the list as new music comes along.

I'll make sure Mr. Kaos makes a great playlist for you. You have plenty of time, he won't finish it until 5 minutes after your party starts and that won't be for like another 50 years right?

AWESOME Papa K! I always knew you had faboulous taste! Keep on Rockin! We'll party hard. Trust me.

You are right, I do still hate that song.
