Your favorite songs
« on: February 16, 2003, 06:42:00 pm »
This is a dangerous topic... I'd like to see how some people handle this... please limit it to only three.  I'll start:<P>P.J. Harvey: this mess we're in<BR>Echo and the Bunneymen : Killing Moon<BR>Radiohead : anyone can play guitar<P>... I know a little T. Yorke here... but it's what came to mind.  I'll probably post again when I'm in a different mood.

Yeah, I know.  I started this thread and already I have other songs in mind... depending on mood, what side of the bed I get out of and so on.... in fact I think sometimes my favs on one day are horrible the next.  Heck I just listened to Ties that bind by springsteen and at times I would put that high up there.

Hmm...these three are among my favorites: <P>1.) Howlin Wolf- "Evil"<BR>Next to Sam Cooke, Howlin Wolf is my favorite male singer, and "Evil" is my favorite Howlin Wolf track. <P>2.) Joy Division- "Twenty Four Hours"<BR>Very bleak and intense. I dunno... maybe it's because of the weather today...<P>3.) Funkadelic- "Alice In My Fantasies" <BR>Excellent guitar riff and the vocals are over-the-top. I always have a copy of this with me at all times.

this is too tough for me to pick... so instead of naming them, i'll just say that it's too tough to choose

All of my favorite songs at this moment are too new to see if they'll stand the test of time so I'll stick to guaranteed things.<P>If I have to pick three right now, they are:<BR>Verve ~ Rolling People<BR>Stone Roses ~ I am the Resurrection<BR>Spoon ~ Anything You Want<P>I also considered:<BR>Cure ~ Pictures of You<BR>Rolling Stones ~ Sway<BR>Pavement ~ Summer Babe<BR>Guns N Roses ~ Rocket Queen<BR>Smashing Pumpkins ~ I Am One<P>

don't start me talking
 I could talk all night
 my mind goes sleepwalking
 while I'm putting the world to right
 called careers information
 have you got yourself an occupation
 
 CHORUS:
 oliver's army is here to stay
 oliver's army are on their way
 and I would rather be anywhere else
 but here today
 
 there was a checkpoint charlie
 he didn't crack a smile
 but it's no laughing party
 when you've been on the murder mile
 only takes one itchy trigger
 one more widow, one less white nigger
 
 chorus
 
 hong kong is up for grabs
 london is full of arabas
 we could be in palestine
 overrun by a chinese line
 with the boys from the mersey and the thames and the tyne
 but there's no danger
 it's a professional career
 though it could be arranged
 with just a word in mr. Churchill's ear
 if you're out of luck you're out of work
 we could send you to johannesburg
 
 oliver's army is here to stay
 oliver's army are on their way
 and I would rather be anywhere else
 but here today
 and I would rather be anywhere else
 but here today
 and I would rather be anywhere else
 but here today
 
 (Elvis Costello)
