    Classic from the Hollies (although not necessarily about family)

    Great responses guys! I like how all these picks come from all over the map musically and how everyone responds to family from all different angles! Plus, there are some great familiar classics here! I was actually expecting some classic Soul/Funk tracks in here as well so I'm glad to see them! The Mike and The Mechanics track posted actually came into my life again when my personal family events were happening so it has a strong connection to me now. I never even knew what it was about prior as I'd only heard the melody itself. The Clapton and Genesis tracks are moving and sad. The Meryl Streep track in Mistrals post was beautifully sung. A Pleasant surprise. Great stuff! :grinthumb

    ]As I understand it this is Christine's tribute to Mick Fleetwood during the mid '70s mayhem that was Fleetwood Mac
