Crazy is good, but not by Willie. Got to go to the original by Patsy Cline. Now for Willie it's Always on my mind and The city of New Orleans. Now if I go back to my mis-spent youth, you have to remember driving down the road at XX mph, an open beer, and "Wipe Out" vibrating the car windows.

Barb and Oshun,

Kind of weird, I didn't think anyone remembered or liked So Rare. That's one of my real favorites. F16, I played Malaquena in a junior high school band contest. Never forgot it. Another one at the contest was Mavourneen (spelling?) that I've haven't heard since. brings back some memories.

My fav of Willie's is "Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground". I also have the movie Honeysuckle Rose. If you like Willie, you'll love the movie. lovehorse

Tough question. To many favs to list and the list changes.

But few come to mind but just scratching the surface:

Best guitar solos - Eric Johnson "Cliffs of Dover" and Joe Santriani - "Surfing with the Alien".

Blues - Bela Fleck and the Flecktones - "Earth Jam" and Stevie Ray Vaughn - "Cold Shot" and SRV's rendition of "Voodoo Child".

Rock/Pop - James Taylor "How Sweet It Is", "Sweet Baby James".

Classical - Bolero and Pachelbel Canon in D Major

Country- All of Patsy Cline and in particular Blue Bayou", Johnnie Cash "I've Been Everywhere" and speaking of Willie - "Mammas don't let your babies grow up to be Cowboys" and "Ghost Riders in the Sky" and Marty Robbins - "Come a Little Bit Closer".

Folk - Peter, Paul and Merry - "Leavin", Simon an Garfunkle - "Sounds of Silence".
Swing - Manhattan Transfer - "Boy From New York City" and "Route 66".


Bluegrass - "Wildwood Flower".

Many more.

Good list John

I thought I had all of Patsy Cline and don't ever recall her doing Blue Bayou. Linda Rondstat (sp) did it really great. I did it on the golf course with one of my drives today. (blew by you) ;D. But anyway, there are so many great songs it is really difficult to pick one. Other great one's. "Solitary Man" and "Sweet Caroline" by Neil Diamond, Allison Kross "When you say Nothing at All". John Denver "Annie's Song" and "Country Road", Elvis Presley "My latest Flame" and many others. Perhaps an easier question would be "Name your favorite artist or group" But I for one would be challenged to name just one. How about, you are stuck on a deserted island and have a CD player but only one CD which has music by only a single artist. Who would you pick?

I hear Willie is coming to Silver Springs in Ocala in 2008. I bought a seasons pass and am really looking forward to seeing him. ;D

In my earlier post I mentioned Pachelbel's Canon in D Major. Here's a video of LAGQ's rendition of Pachelbel's "Loose" Canon. If you have not heard of LAGQ, they are a Grammy Award winning classical guitar quartet. Their timing is extremely precise to create their astonishing sound. These guys are really having fun playing not one but several variations of this wonderful classical piece and you'll be pleasantly surprised what they expertly weave into the fabric of Pachelbel's Canon. If you love musical virtuosity, you'll love this. Enjoy.
