I am beginning a new blog. I am going to keep the focus of this blog to music and related subjects.

My favorite song is on the radio and nobody better say anything, do anything--except perhaps to sing along. Some of these songs are critical to breathing.
My taste in music is very eclectic. It spans three decades consisting of such genres as country, pop, classic rock, contemporary rock and Christian. It runs the gamut from Alabama, Amy Grant and Backstreet Boys to Roxette and Bon Jovi.
As with any music the words by themselves do not make the song. Often it is the music itself that draws me into a particular song. Bruce Hornsby, for instance, has an incredible piano sound. Bryan Adams improved upon a very good song, Heaven, by redoing it unplugged. Celine Dion and Peter Cetera have voices that are very distinct and could make just about any song at hit. And some songs just have a very good message in them and it does not matter who sings it. True Colors, which was originally done by Cyndi Lauper, sounds just as good done by Phil Collins. At the same time there are those songs that are Lifestops for no apparent reason other than they are just good songs.
I have not stopped adding to my favorite songs list. Just recently I have discovered Michael Buble...sigh! His new hits "Home" and "Save the Last Dance for Me" are definite residence of my list.
I have compiled this list with the lyrics on my website.
What do you think makes a great song? What are your favorites?
