My Top Ten Favorite Oldies Music

This is a list of my top ten favorite oldies music. Bear with me, I am going to try and add in some youtube videos and this is my first time doing it. Sorry if this post loads slowly because of that.

1.No Rain by Blind Melon

I can seriously relate to the lyrics in this song. It sounds like a happy song but is contrasted by the sad lyrics. The music video is cute, too.

2. My Brown Eyed Girl by Van Morrison

This is the song my Dad sang to my Mom while they were dating. Aside from the family history, the happy, uplifting beat is my speed.

3. Margaritaville by Jimmy Buffet

Aside from being a general fan of Jimmy Buffet, this song is just a laid back and a happy but mournful song. Plus, it reminds me of the Cheeseburger in Paradise restaurant we went to as a family.

4. Sweet Baby James by James Taylor

A sweet ballad, this song had great imagery. It throws me off a little because I envision it in the West but it mentions the Berkshires, which are in the East. But a relaxing song none the less.

5. Sleepwalker by The Wallflowers

This song reminds me of the CD my dad burned that I used to listen to on repeat. It is a woeful song but I always loved singing it in a happy way.

7. Alice’s Restaurant Massacre by Arlo Guthrie

A hilarious spoken song, this song originated as a Vietnam War protest. It is long, fourteen minutes, but totally entertaining for the whole song.

8. For What It’s Worth by Buffalo Springfield

Another Vietnam protest song. It makes you think.  I always get this one confused with Ohio by Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young for reasons that are not entirely clear to me.

9. Mrs. Robinson by Simon and Garfunkel

This song was made famous by the movie The Graduate, but it reminds me of driving in the car with my Dad as a young child. Good memories.

10. Helplessly Hoping by Crosby, Stills, and Nash

This is a sweet slow song that makes me think of the sort of relationship I want to have.

There are so many artists and songs I didn’t mention, like the Kinks, Roger Miller, REM, Elton John, and Billy Joel just to name a few.  But a top ten list is almost impossible to choose just ten. I basically did the first ten that came to mind (okay, eleven) in no particular order.

Are there others that I missed that you would have liked to have seen?

  1. Great post. I was checking constantly this blog and I’m impressed! Extremely helpful info specifically the last part 🙂 I care for such info much. I was looking for this certain information for a long time. Thank you and good luck.


  2. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
