1. Doctor My Eyes – Jackson Browne "Is this the price for having learned how not to cry?" seems like a very legitimate question today.

2. Maybe I'm Amazed - Paul McCartney Upon learning that Paul did all the vocals and played all the instruments on this song, I recall thinking, "This man could be a candidate for god!"

3. Cowboy Take Me Away - Dixie Chicks Just love this song .. so evocative.

4. Oh, Pretty Woman - Roy Orbison Not my favorite song of Roy's, but he is my favorite solo artist of all time.

5. Love Is The Answer - England Dan and John Ford Coley

6. Down On Me - Janis Joplin

7. Shake A Tail Feather – James and Bobby Purify Can't dance? Doesn't matter. When this song comes on - even if it's just inside your soul, you dance!
