    So my Old Man asked me to make him a few CDs. He gave me suggestions of songs, and I grouped it into 3 playlists - Rock, Country and old school R&B/Funk/Soul.

    With the latter two, I just had him give me songs, and I arranged them in the best order that I could, although I knew very few.

    But with the rock list, he gave me suggestions, but because our styles are very close (as far as classic rock), I added several and made a list. It is as follows (I included the Righteous Bros on this list, though I had to consider very hard if they were classic rock. In the end, I just figured that even if they aren't, the certainly are not the other two).

    This list is very indicitive of the type of music I enjoy, as far as classic rock goes. I left off 3 important bands to me, Journey, Styx and Boston, only because we both have the exact same albums by each band.

    This is also the order in which the songs appear. I don't care if you disagree - I like the flow.

    1. The Spirit of Radio Rush
    2. Reelin' in the Years Steely Dan
    3. I've Seen All Good People Yes
    4. Southern Cross Crosby, Stills and Nash
    5. Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band The Beatles
    6. Owner of a Lonely Heart Yes
    7. Baba O'Riley The Who
    8. Monday Morning Fleetwood Mac
    9. You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin' The Righteous Brothers
    10. You're My Soul and Inspiration The Righteous Brothers
    11. Unchained Melody The Righteous Brothers
    12. In Too Deep Genesis
    13. Invisible Touch Genesis
    14. Oh Sherrie Steve Perry
    15. Rock You Like a Hurricane Scorpions
    16. Once in a Lifetime Talking Heads
    17. Seven Bridges Road The Eagles
    18. Stranglehold Ted Nugent

    In thinking more about it, I think it might of been more appropriate to put the Righteous Bros. in the soul CD. But I have already made the oh well.

    Further - I don't care what you say about Steve Perry. He had a good voice.

    I know there are things missing - Led Zeppelin, Jethro Tull, and many others, but I could only put so much on a CD....

    Please feel free to post a playlist.

    NOTE - DO NOT POST YOUR MUSICAL LIBRARY. A PLAYLIST SHOULD BE ABOUT THE SIZE OF A CD - NO MORE THAN 20 SONGS. This should be a nice little thread to hold us at least a few days until TC.

    I did some burning this week as well.

    I did a Commodores/Earth, Wind and Fire mix. They were the Beatles/Elvis, dog lover/cat lover question when I was a teen. I loved them both.

    Three Dog Night. A great band that gets over looked.

    I did a country rock mix with Skynard, Allman Brothers, Charlie Daniels, 38 Special, Eagles, with a couple of Garth Brooks songs.

    One weird mix of Springsteen, Queen, Billy Joel, Elton John and Boz Scaggs.

    For the purposes of this exercise, I'm limiting myself to one song per artist mentioned...

    Turn The Page, Bob Seger... though this is gonna be a rock and roll playlist, you still have to have some ballads on it, and I just love the saxophone work on this one...

    Dixie Chicken, Little Feat... this isn't their hardest rocking song, but I like the energy of it, and it's pretty funny...

    Further On Up The Road, Bruce Springsteen... from his more recent album "Rising", this is a GREAT rock and roll song...

    The Runway, Grass Roots... a blues-edged rock song from an underappreciated group...

    I Can't Make You Love Me, Bonnie Raitt... one of the most unusual and prettiest songs in the "lost love" genre, another ballad...

    Your Mama Don't Dance, Loggins & Messina... that bouncy rhythm is just infectious... I'm glad they're gettin' back together for a tour this summer, hope it leads to them going back into the recording studio...

    Cocaine, Eric Clapton... that driving guitar line IS rock...

    Running On Empty, Jackson Browne... that was THE party album one summer when I was in my late 20s...

    Desperado/Doolin-Dalton, Eagles... the reprise of those two songs at the end of the Desperado album, an interesting fusion of the two with some of the sweetest, most mournful dobro work I've ever heard...

    Long Haired Country Boy, Charlie Daniels... that song always cracks me up...

    Queen Of The Silver Dollar, Doctor Hook... kind of country rock...

    American Pie, Don McLean... the day the music died...

    Walkin' Back To Georgia, Jim Croce... I love to focus on Maury Muehlheisen's guitar work on that one... I almost chose Lover's Cross instead, that's one of my favorite songs to sing...

    Language of Love, Dan Fogelburg... Dan is just a brilliant musician, and this song had an edge to it...

    Amazing Grace, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band... most of y'all have probably never heard this one, an instrumental duet on acoustic guitar that is really, really pretty...

    Get Back, Beatles... had to include one from them, and this is their best pure rock song, IMO...

    God's Own Drunk, Jimmy Buffett... just howlingly funny...

    A Change Is Gonna Come, Sam Cooke... no true rock and roll playlist would be complete without at least a nod to Motown...

    Tears Of A Clown, Smokey Robinson and the Miracles... I just love Smokey's voice...

    Dream A Little Dream Of Me, Mama Cass Elliott... again, a singer's singer...

    I know I'm gonna think of any number of songs that should have made this list but didn't after I post this, but this top 20 would keep me quite entertained...

    As I mentioned in another thread earlier, I have been using Limewire these last few days to search out and download some of the great songs from my past... then I converted all those mp3s to wavs that will play on something other than my PC (don't have an mp3 player), using a free progam called JetAudio...

    Today, I burned my first disc, 17 blasts from my past with a heavy folk rock flavor... here's the playlist, in the order it appears on the CD:

    Watching The River Run-- Loggins & Messina

    Black Velvet (can't remember the girl who sang this one, but it is not the Alannah Myles version)

    Modern Day Romance-- Nitty Gritty Dirt Band

    Cover Of The Rolling Stone-- Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show

    Doctor, My Eyes-- Jackson Browne

    Speed Of The Sound Of Loneliness-- Nanci Griffith, with John Prine

    Total Eclipse Of The Heart-- Bonnie Tyler, with Meat Loaf

    Sweet Baby James-- James Taylor

    Dock Of The Bay-- Otis Redding

    Long Haired Country Boy-- Charlie Daniels Band

    If You Could Read My Mind-- Gordon Lightfoot

    Doolin-Dalton-- Eagles

    Rock Me On The Water-- Jackson Browne

    Banana Republics-- Jimmy Buffett

    The Road-- Jackson Browne (I was at the concert where he recorded this one)

    Hot Rod Lincoln-- Asleep At The Wheel

    Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word-- Elton John

    This mix is long on acoustic guitar driven songs, the kind of stuff that shaped my musical tastes... next up, I have another mix of favorites, then I contemplate a Country-Western mix that will feature a lot of Patsy Cline, a lot of Travis Tritt, some Willie Nelson, even some of the old, original outlaws like Hoyt Axton and Jerry Jeff Walker...

    Then, I've put together a folder of Motown stuff that will feature Sam Cooke and Smokey Robinson, along with some white boys (and girls) like The Commitments and the Blues Brothers covering some of the Motown classics...

    And it occurred to me on the ride to work tonight that I might have enough blues-oriented songs downloaded to give me a nice blues mix...

    I'm havin' some fun right now... :D
