Songs You Never Grow Tired Of

Posted March 2, 2010

What songs do you never grow tired of? What tunes sound great no matter how many times you hear them?


This, of course, is a follow-up to yesterday’s lively discussion about songs we love to hate.  I think “Achy Breaky Heart” was the dubious winner.


Personally, I still love “Rhythm of the Rain” and “The Last Leaf” by The Cascades. I never grow tired of those beautiful 1960’s songs. There’s also an album from Celtic-fusion band Nightnoise called “Something of Time.” I listen to it once a month and it always inspires me. Plus, the CD “Lonely Runs Both Ways” by Alison Krauss and Union Station is an evergreen in my iPod along with The Gladiator Theme from Hans Zimmer and Bach’s Brandenburg concertos.


What about you? What song would you love to hear today, tomorrow and next week?

    You should Alison Krauss' version of Carolina on My Mind. It blows James Taylor's version out of the water!

    I have to go with the soundtrack to "O Brother, Where Art Thou?". Even my girls, ages 3 & 8, love it, especially "Man of Constant Sorrow."

    One would be Seize the Day by Avenged Sevenfold. "Seize the day, or die regretting the time you lost", the words I live my life by. Another one would be Layne by Staind. Layne is about the late Alice in Chains vocalist Layne Staley.
