Hi dear edna. I found that list of Rolling Stone's songs. The compiler, Brian Keizer, isn't a performer - although he did play guitar in a band - he's an author of novels and film screenplays. He wrote "Liner Notes" about/with (?)Neil Young + he's a Music Critic, thus the invitation to do the List, I suppose.

I was going to put it here, but it might get confused with the Top Tens. I'll PT it.

:)

#1 : Never Tear Us Apart : " If I hurt you , I'll make wine from your tears " - great line !

#2 : Take The Long Way Home : It's the harmonica . One of the great married man's laments

#3 : Magic Man : The girls' 'Immigrant Song ' :rockon:

#4 : Rocket Man : more marriage angst, but he's simply dreaming ( don't read into this ! ;) )

#5 : Water Of Love : A foundation of that great debut album !

#6 : She Talks To Angels : a pretty ode to the ' lost girls' out there

#7 : All of My Love : Simple and to-the-point love song

#8 : Before They Make Me Run : Keith's last ' up yer's ' before kicking heroin .

#9 : See Emily Play : an interesting taste of the direction PF could have went down .

#10 : Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft : Not a particularly great song but certainly reminds one of the ' StarWars /Close Encounters ' times and mania and I feel young again ... good, wacky call , BF !

-------

#11 : Build Me Up Buttercup

#12 : Ain't No Mountain High Enough

#13 : No Expectations : country-honk at it's finest !

Damn this restriction of 10 ! :) Toughest list for me this week !

I felt bad leaving off Bad Company & DireStraights, the Skyliners, along with 15 or more other good songs, but it had to be done.

Actually I'm beginning to think, I should switch my #1 & #6 to match Kevin's; I have ways of fixing the vote :laughing:

an interesting taste of the direction PF could have went down.

That's exactly what I've been talking about! I knew I wasn't crazy when trying to tell this to PaulEdward.

Wow! I believe you could pinpoint my age just from my votes! Apologies to those left out, (specially Elton) and there were a few. I try to stay away from the Stones, but I particularly like these 2. Not your usual first thoughts, when it comes to the Stones, and that's what I like.
