Favorite Songs


Kathy has posted a list of her top ten 70s songs, and several others have added theirs in the comments box. Me, I have a problem remembering what era some songs came from. I was busy in the 1970s! I graduated high school in 1972, joined the Church in 1973, married and had a baby in 1974, had another baby in 1976, 2 miscarriages in 1978, and I am supposed to remember music? But here is a stab at it anyhow. They are not in any particular order.
We Will Rock You by Queen (I remember my two oldest kids singing this at the top of their little lungs while swinging on the swingset)
I need Love by Donna Summer (My husband used this to test audio equipment at the radio station)
Living in the Past by Jethro Tull (I'm a flutist, and besides I happen to love 5/4 tempo)
Hissing of Summer Lawns by Joni Mitchell (Actually, the entire album)
Needle and the Damage Done by Neil Young (my brother taught me the guitar for this)
Morning Has Broken as interpreted by Cat Stevens (I wish I could get our keyboard player to use his version, rather than the sappy OCP one)
Gaudete by Steeleye Span (Love that a capella Latin)
Jerusalem by Emerson Lake and Palmer (Great fusion of classical and rock)
Circle of Steel by Gordon Lightfoot ("Your father's pride was his means to provide, and he's serving 10 years for that reason")
Werewolves of London by Warren Zevon (what can I say? I'm eclectic!)
honorable mention to anything that has strings work done by David Lindley (Much of Jackson Browne, and his own band El Rayo-X) and to Judy Collins and Phil Ochs
