Lucky's Personal Top Ten


Recommended Posts

Immediately upon joining this site, I fortunately befriended a nice lady who was in the process of gathering up the courage to leave her old life behind, head west alone and attempt to land on her feet, with nothing much more than a rabbit's foot and a 4-leaf clover in her pocket. To say she succeeded beyond what back then she could only dream, is an understatement. She found even better providential prizes than the trickets she carried in her pocket. She found joy and a fine man. Her nickname is no surprise and her taste in music is our good fortune this week!

Lucky's Personal Top Ten

My first ptt was full of hits, big songs that I knew everyone would enjoy. This time around it's much more personal. I've left off most of the big names, there's no Stones, Beatles, Zep, or Who. My list is mostly made up of one-hits, no-hits, great covers, solo efforts, etc. I'm afraid some of you might have a lot of listening, I'm sorry, but I hope you all find at least 1 new song to enjoy. ;) - Lucky
