 i agree... twist and shout was a good song to dance to...and to sing alone... plus, you could understand every word the beatles belted out.... good choice of yesterday's songs.....

With a delusion I just can't shake about tracking Ft. Knox to predict events, the other horrible nightnare from galaxies across the universe is "A Child's First Christmas Carol", where the mother music sings a wife for the son, a Blue Whale slave monger in Mongolia, who pretends to be this son and tries to change clothes as the vultures watch them fight down the steps of the Temple, leaving nothing of the City but the cologne and salad and sand to haunt the Docs of space attempting to resurrect the Death March.

But, then again, almost anything from the Moody Blues' classic seven albums would qualify as well.

Even the most stoic, hard-hearted person who ever fell in love has to have a soft spot for the Troggs' "Love Is All Around."

At the prime of my life, age 40, I had been married twice, I fell deeply in love with an extroadinary man; kind, intelligent, caring, terribly handsome, for the first time someone who could really see the real me. Unfortunately, a drinking problem surfaced more and more. Tried everything to get him to stop. Had a NDE. I was so drained and emotionally wiped out after 7 years. The song WHAT I DID FOR LOVE I sang often with a small singing group that entertained residents in hospitals and nursing homes, etc. It has been 38 years since I was with him, but I love that song and still shed tears at having to let him go. The drinking never stopped.He was the love of my life.

Ever since my father died, when I hear the song "Daddy's Hands", it makes me think of him and how even though he was sometimes strict he did what he did to teach me how to be a better person.  He loved me very much and I am the person I am today because of my father's love.  I really miss him a lot when I hear this song.

Brick House by the Commodore remind me of the blue light basement parties back in the day. Dancing was truly an art when I think back to our moves! Shake it down down!

How about 'Fortunate Son' by Creedence. 

The Viet Nam conflict  was so awful, I think many of us boomers have locked away many of our feelings around it. Seems like the primary goal of every young man was to somehow avoid being drafted. Such a time of confusion and disillusion, for our parents had been part of an unavoidable and necessary war, which we actually won.  We were a generation torn between a love of country and the realization that our leaders were making terrible mistakes, for which young Americans and their families would pay dearly. God bless all the Vets.

 I was in my twenties when the album "Born To Run" by Bruce Springsteen And The E-Street Band was released in the mid-70's. Every song on that album is just spectacular. I know every word of every song. I can even play a few of them on my guitar (just not as good as Bruce and little Steven).

Bruce has come a long way and still produces amazing stuff to this day. Listen to the "Live In Dublin" album; or better yet, watch the video. Bruce is one of rock's rennaisance men (along iwth Getty Lee of Rush). Speaking of Rush,....OMG, another amazing rock group. Kinda' got off of the subject didn't I?

"Born To Run" was spectacular - so glad you mentioned it!  I discovered Springsteen when that album came out, though he was popular in certain areas well before that.

 

A later Bruce favorite of mine, which just blew me away when I heard it, was "We Shall Overcome:  The Seeger Sessions".  He assembled such a great group of musicians for that album.  A fine salute to Seeger! Smiley Happy

  Admittedly, there was some "experimentation" going on in the 60's and early 70's, so "White Rabbit" by Jefferson Airplane is still a favorite (and I seem to have some memory of those days, or maybe 60's flashbacks.

The theme from film,  "Dr. Zhivago"...

 

I went off to college in fall of 1966.  In 1994 my dad finally got around to sharing with me that the theme from Dr. Zhivago always made him think of that first fall I went away, & how much he missed me.  Seems the song was playing on the radio a lot that fall.  Now, every time I hear the song, I think about my dad - he passed on in 1996 - & how much he missed me.  Kinda sweet & also bittersweet...
