I'm starting this thread to both share with everyone my favorite music and to also experience music I'm not familiar with.
Since we all have our favorites my hope is that everyone will participate.
Please, lets have some fun.
My plan is to post links to videos of my favorite songs and for all of you to do the same.

Being a child of the 70s, my favorite music is classic rock, but I also enjoy classical, pop, country and more.
My favorite band by far is The Who, followed by Pink Floyd and Pearl Jam.

I'll start this thread with my all time favorite song.
It's by The Who and it's their biggest hit, "Won't Get Fooled Again".
Because of Pete's famous line in this song "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss" I felt it was most appropriate to post this song on election day.
That line isn't referring to the latest politician elected, as is the most common interpretation, but is instead Pete telling us that we the people are the boss and always have been the boss.
I hope all of you went out today and voted and exercised your power to be the boss.

I'm going to post two versions of this song.
The first is of the master, Pete Townshend (a modern day Mozart), playing the song solo on acoustic guitar and a more traditional version of The Who playing the song live.

Not sure but the ear rings look like a go/no-go gage for a .410 slug

Tom Dooley, MTA.....

Al Hirt?

Harry Chaplin, and Neil Diamond were favorites.....been to multiple concerts of both, in the day. Paid big big bucks for a street cop for main floor seats at Joe Louis area to see Neal, the a$$ that sat next to me new the words to all the songs.......

I can’t remember who sang it but now really fond of “The Sound of Silence”. I hate hearing aids/

Try the version by "Disturbed"! This is the way I sing it in my car!! https://www.google.com/search?q=disturbed+sound+of+silence&rlz=1C1FDUM_enCA493&oq=Disturbed&aqs=chrome.5.0l6.6543j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8


Funny, for me, that link took me to the "real" S&G version...
This the one you meant? Fine candidate for an MRI.....

This song was written and composed by Johnny Otis (Willie & the Hand Jive) back in '52. It was covered by several groups; one of which was Gladys Knight and her Pips

Martin, I have a greater appreciation for BOC now then I used to. We have seen them live, twice. Loved that song, thanks

Thanks Jim, that was great and brings back the memories of HS graduation that year of 1970.
