With my 1000th post, I dedicate it to honor Darryl (Old55) for his work - and it IS work - in making this thread run so smoothly and in such a timely manner. Thanks, Darryl.

Breathe (2A.M.) - Anna Nalick New song but am profoundly in love with it since the first time I heard it. Find it and listen if you haven't heard it.

Doctor, Doctor - Robert Palmer A stylized song by a beautifully stylish man who left far too soon.

You're Beautiful - James Blunt Would this have been a better song if you had heard it fewer times? How does that improve it?

Voodoo Chile(Slight Return)-Jimi Hendrix

November Rain-Guns N Roses

Arrgh, you got your revenge, you stole both of my nominations!

Nah, just kidding, but great songs though. :bow: . I seriously doubt that anything will stop me from putting November Rain at No. 1.

Also, I assume you mean Voodoo Child (Slight Return), since I don't think Voodoo Chile has the (Slight Return) at the end.

My nominations are both songs that are a kind of similar style to The Beatles:

Good Times Bad Times - Led Zeppelin

The Kids Are Alright - The Who

I'm not trying to be a smart aleck, but I believe the title of Palmer's hit was Bad Case Of Loving You. It was written by Moon Martin and I have both his version and Robert Palmer's on CD. I agree wholeheartedly with you Ron about Robert Palmer. He was a great entertainer who died too young.

My nominations for this go around are:

Long Cool Woman - The Hollies

Who'll Stop The Rain - C.C.R.

Robert Palmer was a real smoothie. That song was released as "Bad Case Of Loving You (Doctor,Doctor)" so you're both correct ! I had a very old topic called "Sub-Titled Songs" once, and that was one of them.


That's a very kind gesture of yours, which I appreciate so much Steel. Thank you. It's my pleasure to be associated with such nice people as we have here.

As far as I know, Voodoo'Chile' is the 15 minute version, and Voodoo'Child' (Slight Return) the 9 minute one with the wah-wah riff. No one has ever explained to my satisfaction just what a "slight" return is exactly ! (I'm not being a smarty). I think they're both too long anyway. Look at all the great 50s and 60s Pop Songs I could listen to in that time at two and a half minutes each.

Certainly edna. That's the first time we've had a hymn: "Glory To God In The Highest". :grin: (My schoolboy Latin). I love "Needles And Pins - Uh".

Hey bluesboy. I'll bet you got a kick out of seeing "Boom Boom" make the last Top Ten ?
