    Let's list some songs that we never get tired of hearing.

    One thing leads to another here on BDC music forums and I was thinking of all the songs I never get tired of listening to after reading some of the other subject matter here.

    I could give a list larger than the NYC phonebook ( well, maybe not quite), but I thought I would keep it to songs I have heard zillions of times and still enjoy a great deal.

    Not in any particular order but just randomly..I give you:

    Come Together -Beatles
    Satisfaction- Stones
    Riders on the Storm- Doors
    White Rabbit - Jefferson Airplane
    House of the Rising Sun- Animals
    I Fought the Law- Bobby Fuller Four
    Rock In The Casbah- The Clash
    Born On The Bayou- Creedence Clearwater Revival
    Black Magic Woman- Santana
    All Along The Watchtower- Jimi Hendrix
    Feels Like The First Time- Foreigner
    Roundabout- Yes
    Aqualung-Jethro Tull
    The Thrill Is Gone- B.B.King
    A Real Mother For You- Johnny Guitar Watson
    The Chain- Fleetwood Mac
    Rock and Roll- Led Zeppelin
    Rocky Mountain Way-Joe Walsh
    ...and my all time favorites...
    The White Room - Cream
    Burn- Deep Purple
    Veteran of the Psychic Wars- Blue Oyster Cult
    Almost Cut my Hair- Crosby , Stills , Nash and Young
    Cortez The Killer- Neil Young
    Roll Another Number- Neil Young

    My God, there are a whole lot of songs I never get tired of hearing. Sure hope I never go deaf. Although they used to tell me if I kept listening to Rock music it would eventually happen. So far, so good.

    The hierarchy in my head is always shifting about, but a few of the songs that are almost always right near the top, in no particular order:

    Mr. Jones -- Counting Crows
    Late in the Evening -- Paul Simon
    Real Real Gone -- Van Morrison
    Watching the River Flow -- Bob Dylan
    Hardcore Troubador -- Steve Earle
    Watch Out -- Dwight Yoakam
    Gimme Shelter -- Rolling Stones
    (The Way I Sing) Stand By Me -- Sypder Turner
    When Things Go Wrong -- Robin Lane
    Physical Speed -- Private Lightning
    Another Nail for My Heart -- Squeeze
    Detox Mansion -- Warren Zevon
    Don't Get Me Wrong -- Pretenders (Oh, and 2,000 Miles . . .  I love that)

    Ummmm . . .  

    This could go on all day.

    I'm gonna stop and give some else a chance.

    carnie, as soon as I read your first choice I thought, "I don't think there is a Steely Dan song I ever get tired of hearing."

    I play the albums straight through and after years of listening to Steely Dan , I have to say, 'Countdown To Ecstasy' never, ever , ever gets old.

    I saw Steve play this song live just two weeks ago.  It was one of the last songs of the show and the band was cooking.  Very special, especially since it's kind of his theme song.

    Deep Purple-Highway Star
    Led Zep-The Ocean
    Blue Oyster Cult-Burnin' For You
    Robin Trower-Day of the Eagle

    A couple that I meant to list and forgot, because I'm getting kind of old.

    Polk Salad Annie - Tony Joe White
    Amos Moses - Jerry Reed

    Also, I'm Just An Old Chunk of Coal is Billy Joe Shaver, not Merle Travis. Although Smoke Smoke Smoke by Merle Travis is another song I never get tired of. And big props to mrmojo for mentioning Arrested for Driving While Blind and halifax for Highway Star. We're going to be neighbors someday Halifax.

    There was a covers band that used to play small venues here in southern Mass. and the Cape who were called the McCarthy-Richards Band. They covered many Steely Dan, Doobie Bros. and Van Morrison tunes back in late 70's.

    They covered 'My Old School' and did it almost as well as Steely Dan. It was great.

    There are too many to list, but since I heard this song only yesterday, and for me, one of the most beautiful songs ever, that I will never tire of hearing, I'll mention this one singular gem:

    Southern Cross - CSN

    I like that one alot also.

    If you like Stephen Stills songs, you might want to check out the double LP from the 70's with his great band he assembled for a couple of albums called Manassas (I you are not already familiar with them, some real good studio musicians , Chris Hillman of the Byrds and Dallas Taylor who drummed in CSNY). There are some really nice Stills songs on this album.

    The funny thing about this song is that nobody I knew liked I Feel Alright that much, and I thought maybe Steve was in danger of falling victim to his sobriety. Of course, that never happened, and then Troubador showed up on the Talladega Nights soundtrack and . . .   well . . .   you know how people are.

    Cool

    I had a feeling you (and DD) would be a fan of this song, based on so many comments that you've made.  I couldn't list another song after this one, and I really mean that. 

    Thanks, I will have to look into Manassas.  Sounds very special and if there are any members of the Byrds contributing, that tells me somethin' right there, you know?  :)
