14. A great choice, indeed...

 

But, we have 3 "classic rock" stations in Seattle, and that - along with "Daniel", "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" "Levon" and a host of others just get played waaaay too much for me... hell, I'm even at the point where Jackson Browne's "The Load Out/Stay" - which was hands-down my favorite song about the music industry - is now on my list of "never need to hear it again" songs...

2. Not exactly subtle

You could just use ignore like others do with members they don't like.

3. If we're pretending this is about music

I pick Levon, a much better song.

4. That would have been my choice except the local station I listen to overplays it like mad...

 

I hate terrestrial radio.

7. Same here.

We've been Sirius subscribers for years and I could not imagine having to go back to listening to commercial radio.

12. We got a 3 month trial when we bought our Juke.. couldn't afford to renew it though...

 


But now that things are settling back down, I'm seriously thinking about it.

10. You could have gone with



or



or even this



Or at least thirty others that are better, if the post had really been about music.

By hey, you got that pedophile Jimmy Saville in the clip, so there's that.

13. Well, given a 40 or so year career to choose from of course there's other choices...

 

But most are either horrifically overplayed, or they're entirely too schmaltzy (I.e. "the Disney era crapola, or the Kiki Dee duet...)

17. Unfortunately my phone's being a piece of shit today, so I can't see what those videos are...

 

But, if one of them is "Candle in the Wind", I'd say that song has two strikes against it for me... first, the Princess Diana remake got overplayed to absolute death.. but more importantly, my old singer passed away back in 2009 from diabetes.. we had been friends and bandmates for 18 years.. whenever we were on the road, we'd always find some little karaoke joint, and that was "his" song.. he always nailed it, and it was always fun to watch people being blown away by a scary-looking, professional metal singer doing such an iconic "mellow rock" song, and doing it better than even the original.. of course, it was played at his memorial.. still kinda hard to hear 4 years later.

Along with this one.




I damn near wore out my Good Bye Yellow Brick Road album.
