The Songfactors' Choice Top Ten #117


Recommended Posts

Now I remember Pearl Jam's Black. :)

When Farin and I had our "he nominated 60s, I nominated 90s" in one Top Ten, I consulted Young55 for some ideas, and he said 'what about my favorite Pearl Jam song ?' So I listened to it ( Black). But I said 'thanks son, but it's not really my kind of music'.

I've listened to all songs - no surprises here.

1. Up Around The Bend - Creedence Clearwater Revival (1970)

2. Rockaway Beach - Ramones (1977)

3. Walk Away Renee - The Left Banke (1966)

4. Lay Down Sally - Eric Clapton (1977)

5. Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds - The Beatles (1967)

6. Just The Way You Are - Billy Joel (1977)

7. Singer Not The Song, The - The Rolling Stones (1965)

8. Show Must Go On, The - Queen (1991)

9. Tonight's The Night (Gonna Be Alright) - Rod Stewart (1976)

10.I Am ...I Said - Neil Diamond (1971)

I'll just mention that any regulars who missed nominating are most welcome to vote, as Joe just did. I'm not completely comfortable with my decision to allow Ledjam's votes to count. I initially wasn't going to, but when I went back through the Tens I found a precedent had been set by allowing him to do so before. Anyway, the decision has been taken.

1. I'm A Lonesome Fugitive - Merle Haggard & The Strangers .. This may be the only vote for Haggard. I think many of my contemporaries will always hold a grudge over Okie From Muskogee. I never tolerated much C&W, but must admit some of Merle's earlier stuff is loaded with je ne sais quoi.

2. Function At The Junction - Shorty Long

3. Day Of The Eagle - Robin Trower

4. Hypnotized - Fleetwood Mac

5. Higher Love - Steve Winwood

6. Black - Pearl Jam

7. Do It Again - The Kinks

8. I Try - Macy Gray

If Black makes it, it'll be our first 90s #1 since Are You Gonna Go My Way in Top Ten #72, and it'd be good for the Ten to see that.

Great nomination Tim. You went close with Lithium last week and may go one better this time. Couldn't happen to a nicer young man.

:thumbsup:
