1-A Case Of You - Joni Mitchell

2-I Wanna Be Adored - The Stone Roses

I don't actually know many of these songs, but if they are all as good as these two, it's a *hot* list. That's a devastating Stone Roses track - the distilled sound of pure awesome - and the whole Blue album is probably in my all-time TT.

Incidentally, you do know I absolutely can't stand The Killers, don't you? :shades:

:blush:

Other than having seen a statement to that effect in a thread on this site (which I did not - did you state that fact here once?) there would be no way I would have known that.

No, the reason the song put me in mind of you was the discontent within the lyrics, that I imagined the bands in which you have played have echoed. The Killers had nothing to do with the corollary. Sorry if you felt it a jab. It was not. Ironically, I was going to cite I Want To Be Adored (which you chose in your TT) as putting me in mind of you, but thought you might read too much into the title, so I picked my second choice upon which to make that comment ... lol.

BTW I was a bit surprised and found it revelatory that you included Afirika in your ten. Cool. :cool:

Blue is Joni at her all time best. Any time Joni Mitchell is on a PT, she's in my top five at least. And the Stone Roses song was new to me, but I loved it enough to put it at #2 ;)

Hey, I want a song... :P :jester:
So do I :puppyeyes:

These Friends Of Mine - Rosie Thomas dedicated to all of you who continually enrich my appreciation of music - "they sure love to sing."

There it was for both of you - and not one vote :(

But that's OK. I did not mention some names, at the exclusion of others. It was just that certain songs strongly put me in mind of characteristics I seemed to have adopted for some people here. It wasn't meant in form to be a popularity highlight or something. My final song dedication is how I feel about everyone here. We all have something to offer to enrich all others, if we only look hard enough for that something.

01. I Wanna Be Adored - The Stone Roses

02. Six Days On The Road - Taj Mahal (I haven't heard a recommendation I didn't like... I should buckle and buy an album)

03. Summer Wages - Ian Tyson (I love the old Country sound :cool: )

04. I'm Only In It For The Love - John Conlee (there are so many ways this could be sung... I'm thinking of a Heroin Country Twangy Pop version of this song :beatnik: )

05. Killer Blow - Sade (my favourite singer from the top 50, but not my favourite song... it still ranks in the top 10)

06. Broken Doll - Paloma Faith (wow, this one sounded beautiful on first listen)

07. Don't Blame Your Daughter - The Cardigans (Nina Persson :googly: )

08. Bruises - Chairlift (this was used on a commercial... it's a boner fide EARWORM! :rockon: )

09. Be OK - Ingrid Michaelson

10. Stella By Starlight - Cannonball Adderly (great instrumental, it's not just the sax, but the whole orchestration of this masterpiece. It's top 10 material).

11. Bubbly - Colbie Callat (This is the kind of song that would sound juuuuust right... if I were in love... SO close hahahah :headphones: )

Great selections, overall; very classy and smooth in some parts - just the way I like 'em :beatnik:

Hey, I love the surprises and the interesting choices I discerned from member to member as you each voted. Now, I understand why people got excited when I notified them it was their time to submit a list. It's a pretty cool process to follow from beginning to end.

Thanks and stay tuned! Starting Sunday we will list the "no votes" for a second-chance review and vote. Then the week after that we will have an Ultimate PTT featuring the top two winners from each week's list. Should be fun ... thanks for that idea, Kenne.

I loved most of the songs you suggested, Ron... :cool:

That's a very good list and I really enjoyed it (I even bookmarked some songs and now they're among my fave ones... )

Thank you!!!! :thumbsup.

"Six Days..." is a must... :cool:

(not like "Seven Days" :laughing: )

S2V,Great list of songs :thumbsup: I actually thought about changing my vote after listening to this list 3 times...But,I would have added Jolene, that Gabriella song (earworm)that's good stuff...I've never heard so many songs so different...Sax,ladies singing like a bird...and that Stone Roses song kicks A$$...and Taj Majal... :cool: Oh yeah...that jug band music :bow: great stuff

And also "Thank you" for putting this all together :bow: I don't think I've ever heard so many good songs in such a short time...this is music and it's fun :coolio: :rockon:

Great list Ron, and a lovely listening process. You gave me a couple of songs that will stay with me long after this ptt has finished (Johnny and that crazy Boom Boom for one.)

I want to add my thank you's to the rest ..... the ptt's are a huge commitment that you can't really understand unless you've done it, and here you've been week in, week out, with a smile in your words. I know that we are all looking forward to the upcoming rounds too. Thanks Ron, you rock! :thumbsup:

I'm shocked and stunned.

:laughing:

It's electrifying!

Actually, the only real final result surprise I found is that Sia's 2 songs got only a single vote between them. I felt both were uniquely arranged and exceptionally well performed. I have become a fan of hers as a result of having my mind pried open a bit further through this round of PTT exercises.

04. I'm Only In It For The Love - John Conlee (there are so many ways this could be sung... I'm thinking of a Heroin Country Twangy Pop version of this song :beatnik: )

Now that'd be one Bocephus arrangement! :cool:

Thanks again to all who took the time to listen and vote. You are good-hearted people. Your loyal participation is what makes this work so well.

1. Broken Doll - Paloma Faith

2. I Found A Love - The Falcons

3. That Thing You Do - The Wonders

4. Be OK - Ingrid Michaelson

5. I Could Fall In Love - Selena

6. Bruises – Chairlift

7. Bubbly - Colbie Callat
