Down On Me ~ Janis

Love Is The Answer ~ England Dan and John Ford Coley

I heard this song over the weekend, hadn't heard it in a long long time...love the lyrics...so I thought here is a tune to nominate. Kudos to Todd Rundgren for writing a cool song.

Love Is The Answer

Name your price

A ticket to paradise

I can't stay here any more

And I've looked high and low

I've been from shore, to shore, to shore

If there's a short cut I'd have found it

But there is no easy way around it

Light of the world, shine on me

Love is the answer

Shine on us all

Set us free

Love is the answer

Who knows why

Someday we all must die

We're all homeless boys and girls

And we are never heard

It's such a lonely, lonely, lonely world

People turn their heads

And walk on by

Tell me is it worth just another try

Light of the world, shine on me

Love is the answer

Shine on us all

Set us free

Love is the answer

Tell me, are we alive

Or just a dying planet

(What are the chances)

Ask the man in your heart

For the answer

And when you feel afraid

(Love one another)

When you've lost your way

(Love one another)

And when you're all alone

(Love one another)

And when you're far from home

(Love one another)

And when you're down and out

(Love one another)

And when your hopes run out

(Love one another)

And when you need a friend

(Love one another)

And when you're near the end

(Love)

(We've got to love)

(We've got to love one another)

Light of the world, shine on me

Love is the answer

Shine on us all

Set us free

Love is the answer

Light of the world, shine on me

Love is the answer

Shine on us all

Set us free

Love is the answer...

Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting - Elton John

Takin' Care of Business - BTO

:thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I love your selections, RonJon! I'm a big BTO fan and Elton is one of my favourite performers. Hopefully, Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting will fare better this time around.

Elton and his band are playing in Calgary in September but I was unable to snag any tickets. The concert sold out in 23 minutes. Maybe I will have more luck with tickets to The Who concert.

Oh, Pretty Woman - Roy Orbison & The Candymen

Piano Man - Billy Joel

................................................

Teach Your Children - CSNY (Cancelled; please see later Post).

(I thought it was just CSN until I looked it up in my BOOK. Did Neil Young just join in with them occasionally? Same with Crazy Horse; he seemed to record only sporadically with them also. Anyway, I like this song).

Just about anything by Mr Neil Young would be okay with me!....Since we have a few songs by him I'll try to think of some others....Heard these two songs the other day...that I haven't heard in quite a while....

Heart Full Of Soul ~ Yardbirds

Something In The Air ~ Thunderclap Newman

Woodstock was gonna be one of my choices....maybe next time...

I've had these songs in my mind all weekend. Two from Detroit...

Devil With The Blue Dress/Good Golly Miss Molly ~ Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels

Get Ready ~ Rare Earth ( I'm thinking of the 20 minute original version, but for Ol55, we'll say the short single!)

I was listening to Goodbye Yellowbrick Road in the car today, that inspired that pick. BTO's biggest hit deserves a shot.
