It’s Still Rock’n’Roll to Me

Here are some more musical trips down memory lane for you, readers! My tastes may be retro rather than hip, but that is what happens when you listen to the music they play at the store. You hear it, and it makes an impression on you – even when you cannot understand all the lyrics!

See ya later, Navigator!

Favorite Band: America

I am a real lover of the ‘oldies.’ This band of the Classic Rock era, a soft rock group actually called America, is one of my favorite rock bands. Though I do not particularly like the lyrics for “Sister Golden Hair,” the music and the vocals are unbelievably great! Therefore, this song is also on the list below.

Favorite Artist: Jim Croce

Jim Croce was a big hit once upon a time. I have heard that he died in a plane crash, but I could have my information mixed up. In any event, I have enjoyed his music for several years now. Today’s post list some of the songs he wrote and performed which I like most.

If you think Jim Croce is “so yesterday,” then remember this: someday we will be “sooo yesterday!” One does not cock one’s hat at time. It will be blown off of one’s head – before or after one has turned to dust!

See ya around!

Some Favorite Rock’n’Roll Tunes

I have quaint tastes. Rap sounds terrible to me, yet I also have a hard time appreciating opera. Numerous tunes and songs from the “Roaring ‘Twenties,” the ‘Forties, the ‘Fifties, and other eras are more to my liking. I am a noted appreciator of ‘Eighties music (shout out to Star-Lord!). But there are some current artists I enjoy as well. The only one I can name right off is Francesca Battistelli; modern tunes that I pick out are usually one-offs, and so I hardly ever pay attention to who the artist is.

Below you will find a sampling of some of my favorite rock’n’roll songs, readers. Before you find something else that is “more your style,” just play a couple of videos for a few minutes and see if you like any. Who knows, you may find something you recognize – or really, really enjoy!

See ya later, alligator!
