This was tougher than I thought.

1. Ain't No Sunshine Bill Withers who I believe is a native West Virginian. Has anyone ever counted the number of "I know's" in the song?

2. Does Anyone Really Know What Time It Is? One of my favorite concert moments was seeing Chicago live.

3. Life In The Fast Lane The Eagles. Another great concert experience.

4. She's Gone Hall and Oats was one concert that got away from me and I missed out.

5. Pipeline. The Chantays. To me the greatest surf music song of all time.

6. All Day and All Of The Night. The Kinks

7. Alone Again Naturally. A very reflective song

8. China Grove. The Doobeys I drove all the way to Myrtle Beach from West Virginia one summer with this song on my car stereo.

9. Lonely Boy Andrew Gold One of the first albums my wife and I purchased after we were married.

10. Walk Don't Run. Ventures. Another great instrumental

rtstuff

"Good times and riches and son of a bitches I've seen more than I can recall." Jimmy Buffet. Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes.

With me I can eliminate the "riches" part.

No one noticed or was nice enough not to comment on how I screwed up the Eagles lyrics I quoted! Here are the correct lyrics:

"There were lines on the mirror

Lines on her face"

That's what I get for coming on here way past my bedtime!!!!!
