    I will give some from some different songs just for variety, all of these may not be considered the greatest songs but each are great...

    1. Voodoo Chile - Jimmi

    2. Yesterday - The Beatles (I know many consider hey jude or Let it be the best but I just like yesterday better)

    3. Back in the Saddle again - Aerosmith (I love dream on, sweet emotions and Walk this way...just like Back in the saddle again as something different)

    4. Mannish Boy - Muddy Waters

    5. Seasons in the Abyss - Slayer

    Good stuff. I'll DL that slayer song for the workout grind. I have the other two Aerosmith songs you mention but prolly should add that one. The Muddy Waters is worth 99 cents if I can find it on Itunes.

    Good stuff.
    Yesterday is a truly great song, but has been redone to death. Give me little yellow submarine. lol.

    I will not apologize for being a chick and loving chick music. :tongue:

    I left off my Lil Jon, Ludacris, and Game, because that was on a whole different playlist. I break that out when I'm trying to release some stress from the gig. ;)


    Seriously, back in the day, I was in LOVE with Bone Thugz in Harmony. I actually knew the words to their songs and could flow with them. I tried to get an interview when I was doing the journalism thing, but I could never pin them down...

    I've also got an 80s Best of triple disc set loaded on my computer. I could've added some of those on here, too...lol
