Here in the Pacific Northwest I listen to a rock station KZOK FM. I don’t like all of the songs played but here is what I like:
Queen – Long live Freddy Mercury all their songs
KZOK does the breakfast with the Beatles every Sunday which is quite good. I got into listening to them while I served in the military Fort Carson. Anyone know of the Paul Mc Cartney conspiracy theory? You’ll need to look it up for yourself. My favorite is Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band.
Jefferson Airplane – I only like one or two songs from this band one is called White Rabbit Grace Slick sang the hell out of it when she performed at Woodstock ( look it up on YouTube, gives you goose bumps)
I just can’t get into heavy metal like AC DC or Metallica or those others it just doesn’t move me.
Heart – The Wilson Sisters who hale from the Pacific Northwest
Janis Joplin- Favorite songs: Summertime, ball & chain I hate how she died so young . In my opinion she should have grown to be an old woman at least until she turned 50. I have my suspicions about the way she died.
That’s it for my list I’ll probably be adding to it. But music sure helps with depression, and any other problems one might be going through in life. When you listen to good rock music you forget for a time anyway all the worlds problems like homelessness, people living in tents, drug abuse, crime. I grew up in a time when there really wasn’t a lot of this going on like when I was a young kid. Sometimes my friends I just wish I could go back into time & leave ! I really miss previous decades.
Talk about diverse I’m now adding the song “Fly Me To The Moon” by Frank Sinatra. Actually I like a few of his songs. Dean Martins “Ain’t That A Kick In The Head” is a favorite as well.
Updated March 25th I also love Jimi Hendrix live at the BBC recording studio. It’s great songs he recorded in session. The one song ( well there’s many people) its called “I hear that train coming”. I think that’s the name. There just hasn’t been a man since who could strum a guitar like Jimi. My opinion.
And have you seen his gravesite? WOW fantastic a true monument to the man. Located in Renton Washington where I used to live if your ever in Renton go to his gravesite at Greenwood memorial park. Or if you can’t come for a visit look it up online. I am disappointed his music isn’t played as much as say Pink Floyd ( not a favorite band) so I’ll need to buy his music online.
