There are some seriously good songs already here. I'm not in the mood for serious though. So...

In The Summertime ~ Mungo Jerry....The last summer I spent living in Southern California, having as big a blowout summer you can when you're 14 with no parents around. This song played all summer.

Wipeout ~ The Surfaris....If you're from my generation, and especially the guys should know, you were nothin' if you couldn't drum Wipeout on the desk or the dashboard.

Hey, that "Wipeout" sounds like it could be a surfing song!!

Another tough task Darryl. I got down to 14 and then it got tough. The last one I eliminated was "The City Of New Orleans." A great song about a Americana. So here goes my list.

1. Spirit In The Sky. I had to go with this as my number one. It takes me back like a lot of our songs do to a carefree time when I was in college. This song played on the car radio the entire time that the Marshall U. geology department was travelling on a field trip to Georgia and other spots in the southeast. The year was 1970 and the month was March. We returned from the trip back to Huntington on Easter Sunday with about 6 inches of snow on the ground.

2. Cry Like a Baby. I "dig" the Box Tops.

3. Me and Bobby McGee. Janice's signature song IMO.

4. Wipeout. I can still see my buddy,David, in high school doing the wipeout thing with pencils on his desk in Physics class.

5. Soul Man. An interesting side story to this one. Sam and Dave were to appear at one of Marshall's homecoming concerts in the late 60's. The bad news was that only one of them showed up.

6. Ventura Highway. The group America was one of the hottest groups in the early 70's. Ventura Highway is my second favorite of America behind A Horse With No Name.

7. Venus. A good solid rock hit. I can't help but think of the ladies venus razor commercial when I hear this tune.

8. In The Summertime. One of the favorites of my dear departed father. He loved the "swoosh, swoosh" sound effect.

9. Roll on Down The Highway. A great travelling hit to play. I can cut an hour off my trip to Mrytle Beach by playing this tune.

10. Some Kind Of Wonderfull. It was between this one and City of New Orleans for my last spot. I love both. This time Grand Funk won out.
