Top Ten Tracks

I knew my last post would lead to this...great songs - so what are your top 10 all time tracks? It's so hard, and frankly, a good few of these probably change from week to week depending on what I'm listening to at the time. However, here are 10 of my all time faves, and ones that I play regularly in the car or on my iPhone - generally turned up very loud - and the reason why. You can of course beg to differ.
  • Sweet Home Alabama - Lynyrd Skynyrd: Just a great guitar, great piano, good lyrics
  • Jet Airplane - Steve Miller Band: As a pretty average guitar player myself, just love the instrumental intro.
  • Picture This - Blondie: Could have picked just about any Blondie track apart from the Island of Dreams type stuff, but this is great. Short, to the point.
  • Distant Sun - Crowded House: Superb musicians. Great lyrics, neat chord changes.
  • We Didn't Start The Fire - Billy Joel: A modern day Subterranean Blues - look on YouTube for some great history lesson videos to accompany this suberb track
  • Stainsby Girls - Chris Rea. Great voice, sublime guitar (spot the trend yet?)
  • Sultans of Swing - Dire Straits. Ropey voice, superb guitar
  • Rhiannon - Fleetwood Mac. Just love the FM sound
  • Running Man - Jimmy Nail. A real pumping track
  • Beds Are Burning - Midnight Oil. Listen to that driving bass. Ethical issues too
