Great selection Tilt... a great example of Donovan's musical wizardry.

And why he's obviously far more talented than Bob Dylan.

Maybe more lyrical than Dylan, but far more talented than Dylan?

I think you edited my words rather shamefully here. Very naughty.

Just that! *smile*
...We Buddhists must find the courage to leave our temples and enter the temples of human experience, temples that are filled with suffering. If we listen to Buddha, Christ, or Gandhi, we can do nothing else. The refugee camps, the prisons, the ghettos, and the battlefields will become our temples. We have so much work to do. ...

Hey, the songs you posted got me in the rock ballad mood! I've always liked "Nothing Else Matters." I'd never heard that orchestral version before.

Here's a peaceful, but cool rock ballad:


...and another!

I was wondering if I had missed them. Now I'm wondering if number 2 is the apropriate euphemism for Pet Shop Boys :tongue:

What's up, Hanzze.

Hanzze wrote:bang your head :jumping:

I heard that that song was very popular in strip clubs, so a lot more things than heads have moved to that song!

Hanzze wrote:ended up in running to the hills

A classic, but I like "Wrathchild" the best--perhaps because I used to play bass!


Hanzze wrote:back to mamas home

Mama? Okay, you've driven me to this Ozzy song:


Hanzze wrote:one stays a wanderer :-) an early US Lama :-)

Wow, that's a pretty cool, old rock and roll song. It has a little a bit of a nasty edge to it, so I can see it as a precursor of later, heavier rock music.

Here's an old rock song I've always loved:

So who's gonna be Number 1, Retro? I hope you pick some really unconventional band and don't just do something predictable like picking the Beatles.

In case you do pick them, here's a great cover of one of their songs by the guitarist Paul Gilbert.


In case you go with the Stones, here's a great cover of "Paint it Black" by Judas Priest's guitarist:
