Songs That Matter – Part Deux

March 12, 2005

Music

OK, Rick. I’ve worked the list some more. I’ve added and deleted many times. I like most of what I picked last time. But I had to add some important things and delete some personal favs. But I like this list much more.

Here are the operating parameters:

1. Less than three (3) hours playing time!!!
2. Less than three dozen songs.
3. Only songs from 1965 on – this one hurts!

So here is the list…

  • Good Vibrations, The Beach Boys – 1966
  • Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds, Beatles – 1967
  • Riders on the Storm , The Doors – 1971
  • Tiny Dancer , Elton John – 1971
  • Reelin’ in the Years, Steely Dan – 1972
  • Money , Pink Floyd – 1973
  • Piano Man, Billy Joel – 1973
  • Nights in White Satin , The Moody Blues – 1974
  • Killer Queen , Queen – 1974
  • Stairway to Heaven, Led Zeppelin – 1976
  • Hotel California , The Eagles – 1976
  • Sweet Talkin’ Woman, Electric Light Orchestra – 1977
  • Dust in the Wind , Kansas – 1977
  • Roxanne , The Police – 1978
  • Dog Eat Dog, Adam & The Ants – 1980
  • Call Me , Blondie – 1980
  • White Wedding, Billy Idol – 1982
  • Mr. Roboto , Styx – 1983
  • Burning Down the House, Talking Heads – 1983
  • China Girl , David Bowie – 1983
  • I Want to Know What Love Is, Foreigner – 1984
  • Purple Rain, Prince & the Revolution – 1984
  • Material Girl, Madonna – 1984
  • Money for Nothing, Dire Straits – 1985
  • Bouncing Around the Room, Phish – 1991
  • Jeremy , Pearl Jam – 1991
  • Smells Like Teen Spirit, Nirvana – 1991
  • Mysterious Ways , U2 – 1991
  • Losing My Religion, R.E.M. – 1991
  • All I Wanna Do , Sheryl Crow – 1993
  • Just a Girl, No Doubt – 1995
  • You Oughta Know, Alanis Morissette – 1995
  • Crash Into Me , Dave Matthews Band – 1996
  • Airbag , Radiohead – 1997
  • Smooth, Santana – 1999

Rick, this isn’t getting easier. But I did get “Good Vibrations” in. So with a Brian Wilson song in the mix, I know I am in the proximity of success.

Ciao
