"Karma Chameleon" by Boy George takes me back to my first radio at age 10. That was the first song I heard on it and I'll never forget it. The second song was "The Curly Shuffle". lol

Laura, my daughter is 13 1/2. Surprisingly, she loves a lot of the 80s stuff I grew up with! We listen to country, classic rock, pop, some rap, and whatever else I stumble across on Directv's XM stations.

When I was in my early 20's I wondered if I would be listening to the same music later in life. Well, I'm 48, still like classic rock, and still like it loud. Pink Floyd has to be my favorite.

I have been to an Alison Krause concert, listen to country, blues, bluegrass, (NO RAP!) but if I want to get in a good mood friday afternoon after work...crank up the XM classic rock station.

Not many of those, but some artists and songs just make me feel good.

1. "Great Day To Be Alive" - I own at least 3 versions of this song and they all work to get me out of a funk.
2. "Esperate (Wait For Me)", Tish Hinojosa - I can't listen to it once. It's gotta be 3-4 times in a row.
3. Jimmy Buffett - Practically anything by him gets me on Island Time.
4. Bob Marley - Get jah lost in da reggae, mon.
5. Robert Earl Keen - Any guy who'll write a song about 'cue has *got* to be on here. :wink:

There are others, but these'll do for now.


Ooh when I was a little boy,
Only one or two,
The first thing that I did enjoy
Was a plate of barbeque.

Barbeque, sliced beef and bread,
Ribs and sausage and a cold Big Red.
Barbeque makes old ones feel young.
Barbecue makes everybody someone.
If you're feelin' puny and you don't know what to do
Treat yourself to some meat -- eat some barbeque.

Rob, if you like Jimmy Buffet, have you ever hear of Larry Joe Taylor? He is a "Texas Country" artist with a JB twist. He is pretty good!

Yup. Have several solo albums plus a few CDs from his annual music festival. I think my favorite song of his is "Third Coast", although some others are pretty close.

You see if you ain't sinkin' well your swimin'
if you ain't dead, your livin'
livin' is the thing that better scare you the most
And if you ain't sleepin' well ya better be fishin'
If you ain't anchored, you will be driftin'
All and all, you'll be doing pretty good
when you find your third coast
