  2. I love both solos, but the only compairson is the scale as it drops pitch...otherwise I think they're nothing alike...just my two cents. I do, however, seem to remember Love Song in a commercial, but I don't think it was for lightbulbs...
  3. great voice and even better sense of humor...does anyone know....were the ideas for his videos his own...or written for him? "Superstition" and "Coldshot" are hilarious! :guitar:
  4. Earth Angel, That is IZ and no the song was not made for this commercial. In fact it has been used for several commercials including Ivory (soap) several years back and Toys 'r Us online just this past Christmas. It has also been featured in a car commercial, though I can't remember which one and as the closing tune for an ER episode. Hope that helps. Oh, just a side note, Iz passed away before the song was used for most if not all of these promos.
  5. Another good one (which probably most young 'uns wouldn't know about) is "American Pie" by Don McLean. For as fun and happy as it sounds, it's actually a pretty sad song about the deaths of some big name rockers of the time (the Big Bopper, Buddy Holly and Ritchie Valens) as well as several other significant events. A good site to walk you through the song is http://www.schlatter.org/ampie.htm Good Luck!
  6. OK, was just thinking about all the songs that I didn't care for at one time, but once they were remade they were likeable/lovable/or just awesome. Most remakes suck, but there are exceptions. And of course, this is an opinion question, so please respect each others remarks, because some may have liked the original better. I know there's more, but the ones that come to mind are REMs "The End of the World as We Know It Redone by The Suicide Machines (Nothingew also made a pretty good remake) It's important to know that I am not a fan of REM. Fleetwood Mac's "Go Your Own Way" redone
  7. Secretly Loving Someone?...try Dreaming (of You) by Selena Dreaming of You Late at night when all the world is sleeping I stay up and think of you And I wish on a star that somewhere you are thinking of me too Cause I'm dreaming of you tonight Till tomorrow, I'll be holding you tight And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be than here in my room dreaming about you and me Wonder if you ever see me and I wonder if you know I'm there (am I there, am I?) If you looked in my eyes would you see what's inside Would you even care? I just wanna hold you close but so far all
  8. Sorry UncleJoe, I went to iTunes, downloaded and listened, thinking maybe I had the lyrics wrong...but the whole tune is off. The one I have in my head is less Buddy Hollyish than the "I Want You, I Need You, I Love You" and actually has a faster tempo and deeper (baritone) vocal. The tune itself goes up in scale and then returns to the middle of the scale before resolving itself at the end of the phrase...if that helps? This is driving me mad, I tell ya! I do have to say though, that I wish I had known the "I Want You, I Need You, I Love You" when I was back in college. There was a g
  9. OK...I have no other lyrics (including those listed above?) , because these are the only ones repeating in my head. As for the song, it's at least 23 years old...if not older. And, it's not Bad Manners...I still think it may be Elvis...
  10. OK guys...quiz time. I looked all over and can not find the title to the following. The song itself is at least 23 years old, if not older. The singer, a male, sounds like Elvis...may even be Elvis, I don't know. The tune itself is enough to drive anyone crazy (as I am going nuts right now). Again, the singer is a male, kinda the crooner type. However it is not Frank Sinatra, not Stevie Wonder and I can't seem to make any lyrical connection with Elvis, but I seem to think it may have been him. The lyrics are: I love you. I love you. I love you. Please tell me, please tell me you love
  11. If you like something a bit harder, there's a song called Holiday by Green Day...speaks out about todays war. Otherwise, I've always cried and associated Paint It Black by the Rolling Stones with war...maybe because it was a theme song for an old TV show?
  12. Ooh! Don't make your final decision until you at least listen to "Feelin' Love" by Paula Cole. I'm not particularly a fan of hers...but the song is super sexy and easy to dance to. I think we had that played when my husband removed my garter...WAY classier than "The Stripper" (which is what I've heard at all other weddings).
  13. Oh, there's sooo many...must be hormonal. But, I dare anyone to get into the movie "Hope Floats." The movie itself is not so heartbreaking...but there is a scene in which the little girl (I' don't know her name, but she deserves and oscar, an emmy and any other award) is at her grandmother's funeral. Her father shows up (her parents are seperated) and she wants to go with him, but he wants to start a new life with his new chica. She stands in the driveway and cries, just like you would see any other seven year old kid do when their heart is broken. And it's not just crying, but crying so
  14. OK, so my list is huge, but I've seen MANY of them already listed (ie: Drive by the Cars and Tears in Heaven-Clapton, to name a slight few. Other songs that put me into the waterworks (yes...I'm a girl) that I did not see listed (sorry if they were) are as follows: No More Drama--Mary J. Blige (more hip hop though) Holiday--Green Day (listen to the words) Dust in the Wind--Kansas If I'd Been the One--38 Special Paint It Black--The Rolling Stones (ya'll remember when this was the theme to a show called "Tour of Duty"?...still makes me bawl) Fields of Gold--Sting
