Default Perfect songs . . . ever time . . .

What's a song that never goes old, always hits perfectly, and leaves you in awe every single time.

I love More Than a Feeling by Boston. I think it just perfectly encapsulates Rock and Roll from that era. Brad Delp had a killer voice, the double tracked guitar, just everything about the song, every time I listen to it sounds perfect.

Default Perfect song?

Perfect ones? Tall task and seems like I'll forget some obvious ones:

1) "Stardust" sung by Nat Cole
2) "Here at the Western World" Steely Dan
3) "Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters" Elton John
4) "Sanctify Yourself" Simple Minds

Merry Christmas! Trent King

Stardust, written by Hoagy Carmichael, is one of the truly great pop standards of the 20th century.

We saw James Taylor in concert a few weeks back. I'd never been a huge fan but my wife loves him. I have to admit he won me over with a terrific show and Going To Carolina was one of the highlights.


BTW...any Ray Charles song is a winner for me.

Georgia by Ray Charles would have to be on a short list the list of best American songs of the 20th century.

Default Perfect Songs

This is a great thread... I used this in class today to get the students to talk as an "icebreaker" activity. Of course, I did not recognize most of the songs that they listed, but did have Queen and Journey represented by the students. I played Let's Groove by Earth, Wind, and Fire, then topped it off with Blue Moon by the Marcels.
Thanks
Steve

Sultans of Swing - Dire Straits. Specifically the version I linked below

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Pa9x9fZBtY

Knopfler's work on the guitar is incredible as always, but that druming is incredible as well!
