OK, here goes. These are my 10 favorite American songs; 8 are vocals and 2
are instrumentals. Now when some people list their "favorite" songs they
list what they think might impress others. I don't do that - this is the
American music I listen to when I'm alone in the car with the windows rolled
up:

Vocals:

"Darlington County" - Bruce Springsteen

"Heaven Only Knows" - Emmylou Harris

"Hold On Tight" - Gregory Issacs

"Blue Moon Nights" - John Fogerty

"Boardwalk Angel" - Billy Joe Royal

"Bad Moon Rising" - John Fogerty

"I'm Looking For Someone To Love" - Buddy Holly

"That'll Be The Day" - Linda Ronstadt



Instrumentals:

"Last Date" - Floyd Cramer

"Ashoken Farewell" - Scythian



I don't think there's a bad song in the lot. I'd be interested in seeing
any one else's list of their favorite top ten American songs, if they'd care
to share.

Nice thread Mike. Here's 10 that popped to mind. Agree with some of
the others that an actual list of favorites would go on quite awhile
and that it's a subjective thing that changes with time/circumstance/
mood and what-not.

Louis Armstrong - Mack the Knife
Iggy Pop - Lust for Life
John Coltrane - Favorite Things
Rob Zombie - Go to California
Johnny Cash - Walk the Line
Jay-Z - 99 Problems
Jimmy Buffet - The Asshole Song
Aerosmith - Sweet Emotion
Frank Sinatra - That's Life
Hank Williams Jr. and Waylon Jennings - The Conversation

Didn't include Tom Waits because I'd have to list out most of his
library. Oh, and I forgot a few from Leanord Cohen; Bird on a Wire,
Waiting for the Miracle, Everybody Knows. (Scratch that, I just
remembered he's Canadian). And a few classics from Dylan. Shit now
that I think about it -- > ahh, fuck it, I'm babbling.

"Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everybody knows that the war is over
Everybody knows the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fight was fixed
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich
Thats how it goes
Everybody knows.."

-Leonard Cohen

Thanks bucko. Based on your song, you might want to check out "Bastards on

Push comes to shove, my favorite American songs are mostly from Boadway
shows. A few examples:
"Man of LaMancha" (NOT "My Quest;" the one that begins "Hear me now, o thou
bleak and unbearable world")
""Hey there" (from "Pajama Game")
"The Unsinkable Molly Brown" (I think that's the title--begins "Hey look me
over, lend me an ear")
"With a Little Bit of Luck" (from My Fair Lady) (hell, almost anything from
that show)
"I Enjoy Being a Girl" (from Flower Drum Song)
"Pore Jud is Daid" (or whatever the title is. from "Oklahoma!")
"Another Suitcase in Another Hall" (from "Evita")
"Let Me Entertain You" (Gypsy--another show with all wonderful songs. Alas,
a deceptively hard show to do well)
"Near to You" (Damn Yankees--yet another "and all the rest of the songs")
"The Party's Over" (from Bells are Ringing...another solid good show)

That kind of thinking can get you to listen to Bob Dylan, Leonard
Cohen, Kris Kristofferson and the like. Besides, she has a much better
voice than Crosby.

I can understand your puzzlement about liking that song. Driving an

One other thing. It's "Pancho and Lefty" and it was written by the

Well, I guess I am dyslexic.

I listen to Willie's Place on XM frequently and just about every country
singer has recorded 'Lefty and Pancho' None very well I might add.

Speaking of not doing a song justice, look up Johnny Cash doing Sam Stone.
argh.

Tom Waits should certainly be included.

I was just thinking that Iggy Pop and the Stooges should be in here
somewhere.

I didn't even _do_ a list because I couldn't possibly narrow it to
ten. I can't even name my favorite song except by adding "at the
moment" because it changes all the time. When I posted before, my
favorite song was "Clear Blue Flame" by Delta Moon but it's something
else now, probably "Triad" by Jefferson Airplane. I'm going to use a
song where the Chieftans perform with Emmylou Harris. It is one of my
favorites but I am posting it to thank Mike for starting this thread.

Triad is a great song, and Grace does it well, but I still like David
Crosby's version (since he wrote it and all).

For some reason one of my all time favorite songs is Love is the Drug, and
has remained so for close to 30 years. I don't know why, but I just love
that song.

Great choice.

A few that come to mind are

1 Just My Imagination - Smoky Robinson
2 Cry Me a River (Hamilton/Arthur) performed by Ella Fitzgerald
3 Rosalita - Bruce Springsteen
4 Maybe It Was Memphis (Anderson) performed by Pam Tillis
5 That's It For The Other One - Grateful Dead
6 Willin' - Little Feat (also recorded by Linda Ronstadt)
7 The Weight - The Band
8 The Dance (Arata) recorded by Garth Brooks
9 Piece of My Heart (Ragovoy/Berns) - Recorded by Janis Joplin and
Faith Hill
10 The Pretender - Jackson Browne

Rather than being my Top 10 Favorite songs, this list is more like the
Top 10 Favorite Songs that I happened to think of at this moment.

You are correct, but some Procol Harum songs were pretty good too (Whiter

Iris Dement did some duets with John Prine on In Spite of Ourselves and
that is about as much as I know about her. The last time I saw Prine, she
was there and gave a lack luster performance. I was really looking
forward to seeing her, but apparently she was thrilled to be there.

Merle is one of the greatest of all time in my book. He was diagnosed
with lung cancer recently, but is reported to be doing pretty well.

I have most of what he has done. Another one of the great song writers of
our time, but can sing too.

One of a couple semi-strange things tonight. After suggesting Iris' Town I
pick up "Music City Reader 2005" that I got Saturday at the library
booksale, without looking at contents any at all (and I just checked; she
isn't mentioned on the cover).

There she was, a whole chapter, mainly full of how she spent 8 years highly
depressed most of the time.

Other thing, I was musing about this favorite song thing and eventually
thought of Bing Crosby and the song that most came to mind sonicly was
"Mary, Mary, Plain as Any Name Can be". Later I watch Yankee Doodle Dandy
and damn if the song isn't there. Damn! That James Cagney could hoof it!

Bing did it much better than Cohan wrote it, apparently. (Broadway singers
had to shout back in those days.)

Which brings up the show I just chopped in the middle, an Ella Fitzgerald
concert from 1969. By the time she had butchered two or three popular songs
that fairly ordinary performers had done very well I couldn't stand it any
more.

And I have 'always' loved Ella.

BTW, I also think that Glen Campbell "By the Time I Get to Phoenix" and
Dave Loggins "Please Come To Boston" are great songs.

Great song, but it was written by Hall of Fame songwriter Jimmy Webb,

Terrapin Station - Grateful Dead
Cripple Creek - The Band
Forever Young - Bob Dylan
Fat Man In the Bathtub - Little Feat (Waiting for Columbus version)
Let's Have a War - Fear
Whipping Post - Allmann Brothers
Me and Bobby McGee - Janis Joplin version
Gimme Three Steps - Lynyrd Skynyrd
Stay - Jackson Browne
White Rabbit - Jefferson Airplane

Janis was the greatest and Kris is one of my favorite songwriters but
this isn't even her _tenth_ best song. This isn't a good song for her
and it isn't one of Kris' best songs.

"Turtle Blues" is probably Janis' best song. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=
=3Da1Ok0nNc41w
"Sunday Morning Coming Down" is Kris' best song.

From an old fart's point of view:

House of the Rising Sun -- traditional/ Bob Dylan
Papa Was a Rolling Stone -- Temptations
Magic Carpet Ride -- Steppenwolf
Chain Gang -- Sam Cooke
For What It's Worth -- Buffalo Springfield
My Old School -- Steely Dan
(Sittin' on) the Dock of the Bay -- Otis Redding
I Heard It through the Grapevine -- Marvin Gaye
Turn the Page -- Bob Seger
The Boxer -- Simon & Garfunkel

A few newer songs frequently in my head that could crack this list any day:

The Freshmen -- The Verve Pipe
The One I Love -- R.E.M.
Santa Monica -- Everclear

And some oldies that didn't quite make it:

What's So Good about Goodbye -- Smokey Robinson
Runaway -- Del Shannon
Poison Ivy -- Coasters
Somebody to Love -- Jefferson Airplane
Rainy Night in Georgia -- Brook Benton
100 Pounds of Clay -- Gene McDaniel
What's So Good about Goodbye -- Smokey Robinson
Shop Around -- Smokey Robinson
Will You Love Me Tomorrow -- Shirelles
Early Morning Rain -- Gordon Lightfoot (yes, I know, but they're American...)

Aside: Irish Mike, have you ever heard the album "A Woman's Heart"?

I can't argue with you as you are spot on.
Turtle Blues is one of her best. Kris is a great song writer. I actually
think I like Summertime as much as anything she ever recorded.

My favorite Janis song is:

...although I like the studio version on the "Cheap Thrills" album a
lot better than this live version.

That's some good music dare.

I could easily do all Van Morrison songs.

John Prine - That's the way the world goes round
Van Morrison - Brown eyed girl
Bonnie Raitt - Angel from Mongomery
James Taylor - Steam roller
Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard - Lefty and Pancho
Doors - LA Woman
Allman bros - One Way Out
Janice Joplin - Me and Bobby McGee
Stand by me - Ben E. King
Would you lay with me(in a field of stone) - Tanya Tucker
