Take Ten

When I started blogging last year, I filled out the Favorite Music part of my Profile by listing my ten favorite songs (plus three more, one each that reminds me of each of my sons) . This was hard! This year I'm going to list albums instead of songs.

A Day in the Life (Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, 1967) by the Beatles. I read the news today, oh boy.

Sympathy for the Devil (Beggar's Banquet, 1968) by the Rolling Stones. I rode a tank with a general's rank and the blitzkrieg raged and the bodies stank. Pleased to meet you, hope you guess my name.

Won't Get Fooled Again (Who's Next, 1971) by the Who. Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss.

When the Music's Over (Strange Days, 1967) by the Doors. For the music is your special friend, dance on fire as it intends, music is your only friend until the end.

Badge (Goodbye, 1969) by Cream. Thinking about the times that you drove in my car, thinking that I might have drove you too far.

Time Has Come Today (The Time Has Come, 1968) by the Chambers Brothers. I've been loved and put aside, I've been crushed by the tumbling tide, and my soul has been psychedelicized. Now the time has come, there are things to realize, time has come today.

Purple Haze (Are You Experienced? 1967) by Jimi Hendrix. Is it tomorrow, or just the end of time?

California Dreamin' (If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears, 1965) by the Mamas and the Papas. California dreamin' on such a winter's day.

Get Together (The Youngbloods, 1967) by the Youngbloods. We are but a moment's sunlight, fading in the grass.

Born to be Wild (Steppenwolf, 1968) by Steppenwolf. Head out on the highway, looking for adventure and whatever comes our way.

Bet you couldn't do just ten.

I love them all but none perk me up as much as the Chambers Brothers! The time has come today. Bring on the elections.

I love California Dreaming - especially in the summer. Doesn't seem to have the same effect though when it's 18* outside and blowing like the dickens.

what a great exercise. I've got to steal this post. Are you experienced--FANTASTIC album (oh, right, they don't call them that anymore, do they?)

I think an earlier beatles would be on my list (not sure which one)...

Time Has Come: CLASSIC!

I could never list out only 10. That I know for sure. I am a music junkie so I have all kinds of favorites!
