Do you have a pop, rock, or 'other' song that just SPEAKS to you...like your theme song or something that sums you up? It's hard to pick just one, but 'Teach Your Children' just came on the radio and I realized how much I love that song and how it has touched so many different parts of my life...teacher...parent...60's rock n roller....

What is your song?

That is my favorite TH song...obscure and late in their career, but I love it. I can't tell you how long i spent on the guitar figuring out all the chords.

Then it's Nothing But Flowers ... that song means a lot to me... more than any other that I can think of right off the top of my head.

There is NOTHING like (for me anyway) listening to that song while driving through the mountains on a summer day.

Well, I'd always thought "Bridge Over Troubled Water" -- but the first time I listened to Sting sing "Fields of Gold" I burst into tears...so I don't know anymore. It's one of those two.

First time I heard 'Father and Daughter' by Paul Simon I had to wipe the tears away to stay on the road. That would have been my second choice.

I really liked "Sky Pilot" but can't remember who did it. Does anybody remember?

Plays, I just took a break from computer to eat my dinner of microwaved pasta (Kathy and Sophie are out) and "Fields of Gold" was the song on the radio. Coincidence?

Say, what would have been your song 35 years ago?

For me it was the Dead version. Of course I could have said (or ought to have said) several of other tunes including Perfect Strangers or Strange Kind of Woman. laugh

How odd and cool at the same time!

Thirty-five years ago I think was when Bridge Over Troubled Water was released. Man, am I ever dating myself with that information! help

35 years ago, I would have to say "Season of the Witch" ... the Bloomfield Kooper Stills version.

As far as songs that make you cry... there's an old John Stewart song called "Mother Country." It's very folk-inspired, sort of a combo of talking/singing. When he gets to the end, about E. A Stuart, I always lose it.

I am a huge fan of the old John Stewart songs... he writes such evocative, haunting, nostalgic lyrics.

As far as my song, I'll have to think about it. There have been sooo many. Maybe Blind Faith, "Can't Find My Way Home..." Hmmm. That would be high on the list, for sure.
