Default Just 3 songs

Little background.

I can't buy music online, due to my location I guess. At the same time I don't like "stealing" other people's work, prefer to buy legally. So I made an arrangement with my nephew, who is studying in the US, whereby he buys the songs then email them to me.

Having said that, let me ask you. What are the all time 3 songs that you really like.

It's a toughy to limit it to three. I threw my favorite LZ song in there for you.

All time:
Led Zeppelin: Rain Song
Radiohead: How to Disappear Completely
Dave Brubeck: Take Five

Right now:
Genesis: The Musical Box
Rodrigo y Gabriella: Diablo Rojo
Vince Geraurdi: Oh Christmas Tree

Honerable Mention for both goes to The Mars Volta: Cygnus...Vismund Cygnus

Agree with you John, it's tough to list just three songs. But that's the challenge, and it makes you think hard.

For me:
1- Moon Dance: Van Morrison
2- Crazy: Aerosmith
3- That Jimmy Hendrix song, wish I knew its title.

Harry Belafonte is good, I like his music. Though his body of work is rather limited.

See, the thing about BEG by Van Morrison is that it's in SO many soundtracks, I don't need it in my collection. Actually, it is in my collection, about 7 times for this very reason. It is one of the top 10 greatest rock songs, though.

You should check out Mr. Belafonte's daughter's stuff, too.

Hey Pickles, you get karma for George Jones. Who knew?

I think Louis Armstrong music is very close to being heavenly. Timeless music.

George Jones rocks. Well, not really rocks rock, but it is cool...to me anyway.

Conway Twitty is close. He can rock and swoon. More or less Karma for that one?
