|1. Beatles, Sergeant Pepper
2. Beatles, Rubber Soul ('In My Life' is arguably the best Beatles song ever — at least in my biased opinion. In the end, I could list all the Beatles albums, from beginning to end. I never grew up)
3. Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
4. Rolling Stones, Let it Bleed
5. Yes, Yessongs
So who have I left out? CCR, Fleetwood Mac, Springsteen, Dylan, Simon and Garfunkel, Cat Stevens, Elton John, — it just goes on and on. When I listen to radio, it's the golden oldies station.
Since moving south, have learned to appreciate country and bluegrass, so here goes:
1. Patty Loveless
2. Martina McBride
3. Alison Krauss
4. Hank Williams (a virtual poet)
5. Willie Nelson
Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Conway Twitty, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, among others, all slide in and out of the rotation.
The real hell is that as much as I love music, I don't play an instrument and I can't sing a lick. Whenever I sing, people run for cover and tell me to keep my day job — and I'm retired.
