  1. Blue Moves, one disc?

    I actually like the song "Shoulder Holster". I'd have to find a way to get that on somewhere.

    As James got me to thinking about my favorite classical pieces, it also got me to thinking about overall instrumentals that I like. Which led me to this (it has choral singing) which may be one of my all time favorite pieces of music. Absolutely Beautiful!! (186) Moon River (Remastered) - YouTube

  8. Exploring Classical Music...

    I'm going to list a few of my favorites a little later, but I can tell that I am a sucker for Eugene Ormandy & the Philadelphia Orchestra. If I can find it by them, that's the version I get. Here is a favorite of mine: (186) Sheep May Safely Graze (from Cantata No. 208) - YouTube

  11. Top 10 Elton John Songs

    Yep....I just can't make up my mind. At the time, and for many years after, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" was my favorite of all time. Now, they seem to flip flop, depending which day you ask me.
  12. Top 10 Elton John Songs

    I was just talking about Elton with a friend tonight. Daniel played on the radio which reminded me of when I heard "Don't Shoot Me....." for the first time. My older brother bought the album on a Saturday but didn't come home until late that night. He didn't even open up. The next day we went to church, and when we got home, we went to my room and put it on my turntable. I sat there with the album cover reading all the lyrics as it played. Loved the album from day one and still love it. I never thought he could out do it, but his very next album did just that. Goodbye Yellow Brick Road is probably still my favorite of all time.
  13. An Eric Carmen "concert" that could be done

    I never quite understood why the Rock Hall had the event, and recorded the event for supposed archive purposes, but no one can actually get it.
  14. An Eric Carmen "concert" that could be done

    That evening was recorded. Where is it?
  15. Ten Truths Everyone Should Accept In Their Life...

    #2 reminded me of a story that a friend told me years ago. He had a college professor...we'll call him Mr. Jones....that would begin every class by loudly asking his students "Where do nice guys finish class?" The students would respond in unison "Dead Last Mr. Jones. Dead Last!" I 'm guessing Mr. Jones was hurt in a relationship at some point.
