One of my favorites is The Highway performed by AudioSlave. I forget the name of the singer.

This is something special. I'm hoping you'll listen and read the lyrics. Very interesting, written and performed by someone special. Enjoy!
The title is 1952 Vincent Black Lightning. I hope the link works for you.

Here's a sad one. Randy Travis is one of my favorite country music artists. Just in the past few years, he became quite ill, in a coma, and during that time of lifesaving efforts, the fact that he sustained a terrible stroke was not noticed and went untreated. As a result he is still living, but the damage to his brain has taken its toll. I'm posting this song of his, as one of many excellent songs Mr. Travis performed before his misfortune.

I caught the end of the movie “Inherent Vice” last night, and this gem from the ‘60s rolled on the closing credits. What a commanding performance!

Out here in the state where I live, there was an outlaw they called Pretty Boy Floyd. This was written by Woody Guthrie and performed by the Byrds:

Claire De Lune by Claude Debussy.

That classic and old enough to qualify as one of many favourite songs from the past?

Today I stumbled onto an old LP I used to listen to all the time when I was a teenager. Excellent! The artist is the late Wilson Pickett, and the album is Wicked Pickett. Dial it up and listen to all of the songs, wow!

For pure, unadulterated nostalgia I listen to Edith Piaf, particularly her rendition in of “La Vie En Rose”.
