Top 10 Favorite Songs Blogfest



Today I'm participating in the Top 10 Music Blogfest at Alex Cavanaugh's blog.

Music has always been part of my life. Funny I can still remember all the words to a Top 10 song I loved as a teen in the 70s, but I can't remember details of something I did last year (last month? week? haa!)

Maybe it's the age-- back then music had meaning. It connected you to specific events and things in your life: heartbreak, disappointment, happiness, etc.

Here's my Top 10 Favorite Songs (well, really, how can you pick only 10?) - there are probably others but these are the ones I think of that had meaning to me or that I really liked: (in no particular order)

TOP 10 FAVORITE SONGS:

1. Begin the Beguine, Glen Miller
2. Band of Gold - Freda Payne
3. Indiana Wants Me - R. Dean Taylor
4. Shame - Evelyn Champagne King (my dance song!)
5. Gypsies, Tramps & Thieves - Cher
6. Valerie - The Monkees
7. Cara Mia Mi and This Magic Moment - Jay and the Americans
8. Patches - Clarence Carter
9. Baby Blue - Badfinger
10. Locomotion - Grand Funk Railroad

  7. OMG I haven't heard "Indiana Wants Me" in forever. I'm a fan of most of your songs - we must be from the same era.

  10. Thanks for the trip in the time machine. That was a list of old stuff compared to most of what I've been seeing. Your's is a list that suits my tastes. "Begin the Beguine"! Ah yes--makes me conjure up visions of Fred Astaire.
