Dead Skunk (Loudin Wainright III):

 

"Roll up yer window and hold your nose
You don't have to look and you don't have to see
'Cause you can feel it in your olfactory
You got your dead skunk in the middle of the road"

Whenever I call you friend

Kenny Loggins&Stevie Nicks

 

Love the beginning of this song and the 

positive message about the value of

friendship, no matter what 😎

Shiny happy people  REM. I have always

loved REM but this song is a total

departure from the often dark and

somber side of their music. The addition

of the amazing vocals of Kate Pierson

of the B-52’s makes the song.

Love the video also 😎

"She Loves You" (Beatles)--always reminds me of when I was an adolescent and had my first transistor radio.  The neighborhood kids would gather in the streets, transistors pressed to ears, all tuned to same station, and when "She Loves You" came on (which was often) we'd dance like wildmen and sing along.  It's a sing-along kind of song.
