“Hurts So Good” by John Cougar
(Sometimes love don’t feel like it should!”)

Amazing Grace performed by massed Pipe and Drum Corps. Like Atticus says, it’s about emotion. An open field with hundreds of musicians and this song definitely takes one out of this world for a few moments.

“Voodoo” by Godsmack I swear Hillary Clinton is in this one.

How about four:
Beginnings – Chicago
Freedom – Sons of Champlin
I’m A Man – either Spencer Davis Group or Chicago
Truckin’ – Grateful Dead

Best album of all time: Chicago Transit Authority (note that it includes my first and third selections above)

+2 on Amazing Grace

110 I'm just saying.... June 6, 2014 at 7:36 AM

I like anything but RAP music. RAP music is not really music, it’s born out of anger.

The Rain Song by Led Zeppelin

112 lovemusic June 6, 2014 at 7:56 AM

I have a few favorites–

I like the IZ version of: What a wonderful world and somewhere over the rainbow–he ran them together and it’s beautiful. His mellow voice and the ukelele–beautiful.

Stevie Nicks: Landslide

Beatles: While my guitar gentle weeps.

Don Maclean: Miss American Pie; Vincent (Stary stary night)

Abba; fernando

Puccini: Caro Bambino Mio

Hallelujah Chorus

Ave Maria

The story of my life…. Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap

Anything that Johnny Mathis sings.

Do you know the story behind the title Dirty Deeds Done Dirty Cheap??

Angus Young loved watching the Beany and Cecil show as a kid. The villian on the the show was Dishonest John. DJ (as he was often refered to) carried a business card that states “Dirty deeds done dirt cheap. Holidays, Sundays and special rates”

You all just gave away your ages :) Way to many to pick from, I have failed at this question.

119 anon June 6, 2014 at 11:04 AM

way, way too many cant even numerate
ROCKY MT. WAY, JOE WALSH. the sound is good here ,but it’s the geezer version. i still am not convinced he ever abused alcohol. so sad. but i love it when the old guys mix the band up. My bird thinks this is cool as well.
and how the vocals should sound , although not a good quality here. must listen to loud with good stereo in a convertable/jeep cruising.

by the way this dvd is awesome. wasnt a big fan until this dvd. always love freddie’s vocal range.. I’m always up after listening to that.

WHITE N NERDY WEIRD AL. he really is quite a genius.
this song never fales to crack me up. ‘i’m nerdy in the extreme, i’m whiter than sour cream’. ‘holy cow i’m white n nerdy’is he not hilarious! got a gang problem in your area? try this.

i’ll be back with steely dan, traveling wilbury’s

Mayor, another fun one is doing popular songs that you never want to hear again. let’s do that next time. don’t get me started.

From Deep Purple, “My Woman From Tokyo”. No, I mean it. Really a great song & not just because I’m weird for Asian girls.

‘Guess what. I got a fever. And the only prescription is more cowbell!’ I gotta have more cowbell baby!
After this skit i saw the song in a whole new light.
