Day 5 - 10 Favourite Songs

So I have to find 10 songs ... well, other than James nothing is going to be recent!

London City - James
Goodnight Sweet Girl - Ghost of the Robot
In My Room - The Beach Boys
What Is This Thing Called Love - Frank Sinatra
Can't Help Falling In Love - Elvis Presley
Can't Smile Without You - The Carpenters
Love Me Do - The Beatles
True Love Ways - Buddy Holly
You're The Inspiration - Chicago
Albatross - Fleetwood Mac

It was hard to pick 10 ... so maybe, as I click post I shall think of others!



London City - James (come on, you had to guess that one!)

There is something about this song that I love - it is my ring tone! I suppose it helps that I actually met James in London!!

Goodnight Sweet Girl - Ghost of the Robot

I do love their work (suprise, suprise). This is one from their first album, but this video is from a live performance ( with James & his son in the line-up)

In My Room - The Beach Boys

I love all the Beach Boys music, but this one, which is slightly different to their other surfing ones, is just very special.

What Is This Thing Called Love - Frank Sinatra

I am a huge fan of Cole Porter's music ... and love Frank Sinatra ... so a great combination for another slow sad song.

Can't Help Falling In Love - Elvis Presley

I love Elvis, and as you see on much of this list I prefer one of his slower pieces (hard to decide though!)

Can't Smile Without You - The Carpenters

Another song from the 60's ... the Carpenters were a beautiful brother/sister group.

Love Me Do - The Beatles

Had to have The Beatles ... they are popular with everyone. Another hard choice to picka favourite.

True Love Ways - Buddy Holly

Another slow song that I adore ... another star who died too young.

You're The Inspiration - Chicago

This songs brings memories of my first car! Tim made a casette of songs we both loved, and then it got stuck in the machine, so it was on all the time - this was my favourite on the cassette, and even though I have heard it thousands of times, I still love it.

Albatross - Fleetwood Mac

The ultimate track of my youth - yet still amazing.

I expect you knew them all!

Your songs are older than mine - heh!

I love The Carpenters and Chicago. There's nothing out there like those acts anymore.

I think this is why most of the lists I am seeing are old (even if mine is ancient!) ... recent music is OK to listen to on the radio ... but not to have to listen to again and again ... these pieces are on that second catagory.
