I just assumed that the music I remember loving when I was young would be a part of my life forever. When I got my first mp3 player, Duran Duran was one of the first things I downloaded. We don't get in the mood for that as much as I thought we would. And is it possible for anyone to not like End Of The Road by Boyz II Men? My kids don't.
Here is a top 10 list of oldie songs we do love. This list is in a constant state of flux because we keep remembering new ones.
10. Desperado (LP Version) by the Eagles
9. I'm Too Sexy by Right Said Fred
8. Mr. Mom by Lonestar.
7.5 What About Now by Lonestar. My kids love it, but it probably wouldn't have made this list except that it's one of my all time favorite songs.
7. Lucille (2006 Digital Remaster) by Kenny Rogers. And The Gambler, and Coward Of The County (2006 Digital Remaster) This list isn't doing a very good job staying at only 10...
6. Bad, Bad Leroy Brown by Jim Croce
5. It's My Party by Lesley Gore
4. My Boyfriend's Back by the Angels
3. Sweet Child O' Mine by Guns N'Roses (And OK, just about anything by Def Leppard, but I'm running out of space here. And did you see Slash during the halftime show last night??? Good times, good times)
2. Eye Of The Tiger by Survivor (Mainly because of this video...)
This was an outtake--The actor who plays Sam had missed his cue, but no one called "cut!" so
the actor who plays Dean kept going. Isn't he awesome? But I digress...
1.5 I almost forgot!!! My kids adore Elvira by the Oak Ridge Boys.
Drum roll please: The number one oldie song in our family at the moment is:
1. You're So Vain by Carly Simon. You walked into the party, like you were walking onto a yacht... We can't hear it and not sing along. It's impossible.
What are your favorite songs from the "olden days"?
