Five songs that changed my life

I’d like to teach the world to sing:

I was twelve – what can I say. (the actual song not the Coca Cola commercial version).

Heart of Gold

Again, 12, but this song has stayed with me my entire life. Actually this was the launching of my Neil Young fan club. I’ve got just about everything Neil has written/published/sung over the years. I fluctuate my favorite between this song and the next song on the list. I played this song for my wife when I realized she was “the one.”

Old Man

12, Neil Young, this one touches me. I sing this one in the car when I hear it.

Sound of Silence

This was one the first really hard song our choir sang and I love it to this day. It is one of the most haunting songs I know.

Number five is a compilation song – anything else by Neil Young, a couple of songs by James Taylor that stick in my mind but you could also put a number of songs by Simon and Garfunkel in there. I also love anything by Bruce Hornsby and the Range, the Blues Travelers and of course classical stuff fits nicely here as well.

My fifth favorite song is more of a mood song than anything else.

thanks for listening!
