Kate, the OH and I were at the Coldplay concert in Bolton and i was gutted when they came to the end of their set without playing this. :(


I thought we were going to be cheated out of one of the best songs on the album however they came back on stage and played it twice as the video for it was being recorded! How pleased was I???!!! :D:D:D


This thread is way to hard just to pick one song! :lol::lol:

How could I have forgotten Aerosmith - one of my all time favourite bands :roll::?:roll:


I think I would have to go for "Pink" as my most played one though :D I just LOVE Steve Tyler - he is that ugly/gorgeous mix that always gets me!

feel like going home - Notting Hillbillies (feat. Mark Knopfler)


FOR SHAME OF DOING WRONG - Richard and linda Thompson, or even the Fairport version - FANTASTIC


Bird of paradise - snowy white

Hotel California - eagles (when I heard this in ~75 as a new release I was painting the loo door in my Edinburgh flat).


Lesson too late for the learning - Paxton (now we're going back - saw him in the 60's)


Sorta Fairytale - Tori Amos

I will always love you - Whitney's version


But all time favourite song, rather boringly, just has to be;




and I once met the sister of the bloke who claimed to be the session drummer on this track when it was recorded. His story was that he was offered a very very small percentage of profits, or £25 for the session...

And he took the £25 (very decent money back in 1967 - £100 a week would be considered really big earnings, I remember it well!).

But then again, she might not have been telling me the truth!
