Inagoddadavida by Iron Butterfly. Yes I'm kidding and no I didn't take the brown acid. Seriously, I like allot of songs from different artists. The only thing I really can't take is rap. I have music from Ozzy to Frank Sinatra in my library and enjoy it all. It's all governed by the mood I'm in. Oddly there are times that I can even listen to and enjoy Italian classics from the 40s' and 50s'. I think it's more nostalgia than anything. I can remember my grandmother playing her albums while making a pot of gravy for sunday diner and she was in heaven smiling from ear to ear. (Please don't lecture me on the gravy versus sauce thing, my grandparents were born in Italy and they refered to it as gravy). Maybe it just reminds me of being a kid. One song I can never tire of is Arlo Guthries Alices' Restaurant. I was in my late teens when it was released so it kind of had an impact back then, well at least it still makes me laugh.

We used to have big family Italian gatherings on Chistmas Eve and my Aunt used to always scream for me and say Anne Marie come on I'm gonna play Dominic the Donkey now

Faithfully by Journey
Hubby was on the road with his band many years ago when we were dating... need I say more? We've been happily married 13 years and yes those days on the road are over but that song always brings back those memories of being apart and then reuniting!! Great times.

I have it downloaded on XM and it's titled "Day Music Died". I thought it was called American Pie too but maybe I'm wrong.

Freebird by Skynyrd is great so is Gimme Three Steps.

The Gambler by Kenny Rogers is a classic, same as Margaritaville by Jimmy Buffett. I'm a Parrothead by the way...

I'm mainly country and rock.

Gimme Three Steps as well as most Skynyrd stuff is great southern rock. What do you think about Uneasy Rider by CDB? Funny you mention Jimmy Buffet. We were recently at Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville in Ocho Rios, Jamaica and he is not well liked there. The employees say he never visits and is only there for the money. I was kinda thinking twice about ordering my Cheesburger In Paradise after I heard their complaints.

Charlie Daniels has some good stuff, The Devil went down to Georgia and Drinkin' my Baby Goodbye are my favorites, Boogie Woogie Fiddle Country Blues is great to dance to. Uneasy Rider is OK, not my favorite song but I can listen to it.

I agree, one of my favorite artists. Do you have satellite radio? I love mine.
