Tom Traubert's Blues - Tom Waits

Beyond Belief - Elvis Costello

Superstition - Stevie Wonder

Maybe I'm Amazed - Paul McCartney

A Day in the Life - Beatles

 

Hidden connection: McCartney links them all as he has recorded with EC, SW, and the Beatles and I'm gonna give him credit (via Monkberry Moon Delight) for inspiring Tom Waits' career - yeah, I know is was Captain Beefheart and Howlin' Wolf but am taking poetic license dammit!)

Here are five from different genres that have stuck with me.  I've chosen to provide Youtube links.  Thought it would be more fun that way.  Hope you enjoy.

Not that I prefer these versions. Just that they're great versions of the songs that maybe not everyone has heard before.

Good call on the Peter Gabriel tune. Secret World Live is on my Mt Rushmore of best live concert videos ever. Awesome stuff.

I am going to guess none of these are on anybody's list thus far.  They all have a reason I like them but they aren't necessarily great songs:

 

Black Parade by My Chemical Romance:  This was the song the LA Kings used during their warm up video on the jumbotron for their Cup run in 2012.  I had never heard the song before but it was perfect for how they used it.  Whenever I hear it (which is only when I purposely go find it to play) it brings me back to that stretch run to the Cup.  Just a great memory.

 

I am Gonna Be (500 miles) by The Proclaimers:  I don't know why but I just enjoy the song.  Puts me in a good mood whenever I hear it.

 

Cheeseburgers in Paradise by Jimmy Buffet:  Reminds of my college days when we would be sitting out back BBQ-ing cheeseburgers.  We even decided to have a party surrounding it where we made them just like the song.  Great times.

 

Delaney Talks to Statues by Jimmy Buffet:  My daughter is named Delaney and I had no idea about this song until after she was born.  A friend asked if I had ever heard the song and I had not.  Once I listened it was great.  Just reminds me of my daughter. 

 

You Can Call Me Al by Paul Simon:  A favorite of my best friend and mine.  Don't know why but it always reminds me of him (no his name is not Al).  Again, just good memories associated with the song.

Enter Sandman (theme if my HS football team and memories of some of my best friends)

Carry On My Wayward Son

Sweet Home Alabama 

Pretty much anything from Queen. Today I'll say Killer Queen.

5 songs is very limiting.  I listen to almost all genre... used to see metallica at small venues when they were an opening act. like ska and punk.  listen to a lot of reggae.

fan of jimmy buffett and could have chosen 10 songs from him.  Went to college in San Diego, so Margaritaville is very nostalgic for me with frequent trips to rosa rita and ensenada.
