    Grew up listening to the beatles and santana religiously from my parents and was thinking of songs that stuck out as a personal favorite just by hearing it for the first time. It'd probably be twist and shout for me.

    As I got older, country and 40's 50's songs became more my thing. Mostly Johnny Cash and the Ink Spots.

    Don't Be Cruel - Elvis
    Oh Boy- Buddy Holly and the Crickets
    Something (not the Beatles' song) by Roy Orbison

    Grew up on Elvis too. Especially that gold Number 1 greatest hits of Elvis. Heartbreak Hotel or Are you Lonesome tonight. Johnny Cash has been there since I saw ring of fire and from Tony Hawk's Underground that had Ring of Fire with the mariachi band.

    I grew up on Buddy Holly and 50s rock 'n' roll. I still haven't found anything I like more.

    I have fond memories of car shows with my uncle in his 63 new yorker at the wendy's parking lot with Buddy Holly blasting. Mainly Peggy Sue and It'll be the day.

    It was appropriate for the Vietnam era and it's appropriate now.

    this is the first song I can remember being moved by when I was a little kid:



    and it still affects me about the same way today.


    there was, of course, lot's more music in years to come. one album that I listened to a ton as a teenager that still really moves me is santana's abraxas.

    I played "life on mars" 10 times everyday for over a year in my teens..."maggie may" to (1980-82). The ""highway star" solo and "don't fear the reaper" roll I never get tired of. I'm ahead in crazy league.

    When I was a high school kid, I probably played the C,S,N,&Y Deja Vu album more than any other.
    Stephen Stills was my #1 favorite writer/singer/player at the time.
    Carry On was my favorite song on Deja Vu.
    So, Carry On wins the distinction, for me.
    I still love it

    Years ago,
    I heard ( I think on Sirius Underground Garage) that " Wild Thing" was picked ( maybe written too?) by A&R record guy ( forget his name but he was Jon Voight's brother) while the Troggs were in the studio-
    He played a demo for the band, said learn it, it's your new Hit!-
    The Troggs went through the song twice, and 2nd take is what we hear on the radio!
    Makes for a great R&R story, hope true!

    My mom had a box of old 45s, and that's what got me goin.
    The version of Hound Dog I first became familiar with was this one

    And then there was this gem, "Danny Boy" in a real real GONE way


    Tons of great stuff was in that box
