“Heart and Soul” by Hoagie Carmichael. The melody is now used by Train for “Play That Song”

“ Heart and Soul” is also the name of a charming movie staring Robert Downy Jr. 

It was the first song a piano teacher taught my father when he decided to learn to play the piano when I was a teen.

Easy - "If I Only Knew" by Tom Jones.  It's a staple at family gatherings.  EVERYONE, aged 7 to 77, rocks out.

My 41 year old likes Billy Joel, the Beatles, Pink Floyd, Elton John, Tupac and I could go on. His 4 year old is learning to also love those songs because his father does and they sing them together.

 

My youngest likes Jack Johnson, as well as many songs from the above. They both like 
Fleetwood Mac!

 

The songs they strongly dislike are any songs that I played over and over and over again in the car, by Phil Collins, THE BREAKFAST CLUB sound track, Van Halen and Barbra Streisand.

I think that all the music from the 60's-70's-80's. The talent was awesome and you could understand the words. To many of the artists died of drug overdoses BUT they live on through generations.
