Music Wench said:Good question. One that requires a bit of thought, however, so for now here's a few to get started and I'll add to it as things come to me.
1. Things The Grandchildren Should Know - Eels
Kind of reflects how I feel about life in general. I can relate to the lyrics.
2. Rant and Roll - John Trudell
Great song that turned me into a John Trudell fan. Welcome to Grafitti Land...say what you mean, mean what you say, rant and roll when you feel that way...
Love those lyrics.
3. Grow Old Along With Me - John Lennon
I love this song and it kind of reminds me of my husband and our relationship. Most beautiful song Lennon ever wrote I think.
Just three and a slow start but I'll work on it.
Music Wench said:10. Find The River/Night Swimming - R.E.M.
Two of the most beautiful songs this band has ever written. Find The River is one of contemplation of life with great stream of consciousness style lyrics from Michael Stipe. Evokes beautiful images for me and it's the song that comes to mind most often on a beautiful fall day for me as I look out the lake. Nightswimming evokes memories of a more innocent time. The band members are all about my age and were in college at the same time I was and pretty much I can relate to their memories and thoughts of the time. These two songs are always grouped together in my mind. I rarely think of one without the other. They were also both on Automatic for the People.
