Favorite Songs

By | Aug 9, 2010

I don’t do this often, since nearly everything here is facts, but once in a while I like to just say things that are important to me. And selections of things that to me is purely subjective. This is is my personal favorite songs.

Colour My World – Chicago
This is a favorite of many since during the 70s and even today many proms have used this as their theme, and weddings and the song for the first dance. It’s a great song alone, but it’s often played by the group as part of James Pankow’s Ballet for a Girl in Buchannon song cycle/suite. It was twice released as part of a single. Both times as B sides. First in 1970 with Make Me Smile, the first song in the suite, and then in 1971 with Beginnings.

Won’t Get Fooled Again – The Who
I was still listening to AM radio when I first heard this song. All I knew for the first few months was the 3 and half minute single release. It wasn’t until a friend told me that it was much longer on the album Who’s Next. I was in love with the short version and blown away with the full version. Part of the song now can be heard as the Theme for CBS’s CS: Miami.

I thought I would add a Christmas seasonal song on the list, but I really could decide between three. Version doesn’t really matter. Those three are White Christmas, most popular version being Bing’s Crosby, I’ll be Home for Christmas and The Christmas Song.

Over the Rainbow – Judy Garland
I have always been a big fan of movies and of course when I was growing up one of the movies we all seem to wait for to play on the TV each year was the Wizard of OZ.

Sure would love to hear what you consider your favorite song.
