1. "You Only Get What You Give" by The New Radicals (So good, I'm having it played at my funeral!)



2. "Destiny Rules" by Fleetwood Mac (My personal favorite, but "Sara" is a close runner up.)



3. "Learning to Fly" by Pink Floyd (So good, it convinced me to quit my job, change cities and states, and start a new career.)

When I read the thread title one track immediately came to mind. It's time and place - I was 13 when it came out and it's the first track I reacted to like an adult. 40 years later I can see weaknesses I couldn't then but it never fails to lift my spirits:

https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=yo ... ORM=VRDGAR

Why is ELO featuring so much on people's lists? It's not as if they were even a particularly big band, but Mr Blue Sky is the only no-brainer on my list.

ZZ Top. THE best Deep South Rhythm 'n Sleaze. La Grange in this case. Been in the music collection since Uni.

https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=ZZ ... ORM=VRDGAR

Annie Lennox. She and Dave Stewart made the Eurythmics something very special and produced loads of great tracks. She has a voice to die for. Or to. It's a thin line between love and hate is a cover, picked to show off her voice:

The crowd: "Yes! We are all individuals!"

Lone voice: "I'm not."

No, I haven't. I rather stopped paying attention to them - I was young and my tastes were changing quickly, the album after Out of the Blue was (?) Diary of Horace Wimp or something and not up to much I thought. Queen, Genesis, Kate Bush, the whole Punk movement, Pink Floyd, Supertramp Led Zep were big at the time. ELO just rather disappeared.

It strikes a chord as my father in law was a miner and that was exactly his attitude.

Was listening to the radio the other day and they played this . I'd never heard of it before . I was wondering if any of you had. Written in 1928. I thought it was the cutest song about a bad time in the twentieth century.

One evening as the sun went down

And the jungle fires were burning,

Down the track came a hobo hiking,

And he said, "Boys, I'm not turning

I'm headed for a land that's far away

Besides the crystal fountains

So come with me, we'll go and see

The Big Rock Candy Mountains

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains,

There's a land that's fair and bright,

Where the handouts grow on bushes

And you sleep out every night.

Where the boxcars all are empty

And the sun shines every day

And the birds and the bees

And the cigarette trees

The lemonade springs

Where the bluebird sings

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains.

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains

All the cops have wooden legs

And the bulldogs all have rubber teeth

And the hens lay soft-boiled eggs

The farmers' trees are full of fruit

And the barns are full of hay

Oh I'm bound to go

Where there ain't no snow

Where the rain don't fall

The winds don't blow

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains.

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains

You never change your socks

And the little streams of alcohol

Come trickling down the rocks

The brakemen have to tip their hats

And the railway bulls are blind

There's a lake of stew

And of whiskey too

You can paddle all around it

In a big canoe

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains,

The jails are made of tin.

And you can walk right out again,

As soon as you are in.

There ain't no short-handled shovels,

No axes, saws nor picks,

I'm bound to stay

Where you sleep all day,

Where they hung the jerk

That invented work

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains.

....

I'll see you all this coming fall

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains
