That's easy.

Alan Jackson "Remember When" takes one through the story of their nostalgic life from being born to today.


YouTube - Alan Jackson - Remember When

And again Alan Jackson doing "Where were you when the world stopped turning" which is a tribute to 9-11. It ain't easy getting through this one without wet eyes.


YouTube - Where Were You When The World Stopped Turning?

And the last one is by one of my favorite bands Blessid Union of Souls doing "Nora". This is a true story of his grandmother who is dying and promising to see her on the other side.

YouTube - The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down - The Band


Somethin is much sadder about the studio version, but I can't find it on Youtube.

Also, "Fire on the Mountain" by the Marshall Tucker Band. Something about that steel guitar..

Desertsun41 is right. Dan Fogelberg is one of the great singer songwriters in this era IMO. Several of his songs that underline that point are off his Windows And Walls lp, from 1984. Songs like Believe In Me, Magnolia, and the title cut itself. The best song off that lp is Tucson, Arizona (Gazette).

I am a big Dan fan. Amazing that it took him about 7-8 years from the time he released his first lp to reach fame and popularity. My favorite period of his was from 72-82, tho I liked Tucson Arizona(Gazzette) from Windows and Walls
