Songs you just rediscovered, and love
« on: October 17, 2014, 02:53:29 AM »
I was reading the absolutely hate song thread and so many are on my love those songs list,  it reminded me of my recent excursion at you tube where I found some old songs that really took me back to other times and places...Funny how songs can rekindle feelings, almost like you're back there when you first heard it.

These take me back to the smokey bars and jukeboxes of the '60's
"Woman" by Peter and Gordon
"Woman, Woman" by Gerry and the Pacemakers
"This Guy's in Love With You"  Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass
"Something"  The Beatles
"I'll Never Fall in Love Again"  Tom Jones
"Suspicious Minds" Elvis
"Pretty Woman" Roy Orbison

Beyond that, these take me back to my mother's kitchen table and the family guitars:
Reuben James
I'm not Lisa
Detroit City
Yesterday
Folsom Prison Blues
Morning train
lots of Everly Brothers
Plus a thousand old, old standards no one else here may never have heard of.

There is one song that reminds me of when I was just a little kid of five,  "It Might as Well be Spring".  When I hear it it takes me right back to the yard of the house we lived in and a tree that grew in the middle of the grass.   I can see it in my minds eye and can feel the feeling I had in that moment.

Anyone else care to revisit the past?

I've never knitted anything I could recognize when it was finished.  Actually, I've never finished anything, much to my family's relief.

Carefree Highway by Gordon Lightfoot makes me think of weekend mornings as a kid.  My dad would crank it loudly.

Dance Me To The End Of Love - Leonard Cohen

Madeline Peyroux does a fantastic version of this song.

As for me, I used to really hate Nirvana, but I've discovered that I quite like "Come As You Are."

Rhinestone Cowboy. I haven't heard it in years and then  saw it clip of it on TV and remembered how much I loved it.

Three by the 5th Dimension:

Ashes to Ashes
If I Could Reach You
California Soul (however, in this last case, I can't leave a sushi place without my mind feeding back "...so happy they were rockin' and reelin', because they added some crispy eel in, their California Roll...")
There is no 'way to peace.' Peace is the way.

I just started re-listening to Even If It Kills Me by Motion City Soundtrack, it's an excellent album for singing along to very loudly on the way home from work.

I heard "Coco Jambo" by Mr President last night, and it took me right back to high school, in 1997...

I just rediscovered how much fun the ABBA songs are! used to love singing along to them when i was a teen, oh mumble mumble years ago. on a recent road trip, DS added a few of their albums to our play list and the two of us were singing along to "chiquitica" and "knowing me knowing you" and "mama mia" and... we had a great time.

"Bridge Over Troubled Water" - Simon & Garfunkle (I always forget how poignant it is)

wow. This song and "puff the magic dragon" have always been two of my favorites.

I recently rediscovered Pulp. I'd forgotten how much I like their song structures and tones.

wow. This song and "puff the magic dragon" have always been two of my favorites.

When I was in university many years ago, there was a duo that played one of the bars on campus every once in a while.  They played a lot of 60's and 70's music.  Kenny Loggins 'House at Pooh Corner' was one of my favourites.

They told a story one night when they were playing another university, they were approached by one guy who told them that if they played 'Puff The Magic Dragon', he'd get lucky that night.  So, of course, they obliged.   ;D
I have CDO.  It is like OCD but with the letters in alphabetical order, as they should be.

Some of the songs on this very thread, especially If I Could Reach You-5th Dimension
On The Turning Away-Pink Floyd
Go All The Way-The Raspberries, from Guardians of the Galaxy.  The old music was the best part.

I haven't listened to Pulp in forever.
