Vote for Your Favorite Songs - Letter B Part 2

Posted on: August 21, 2008 4:03 pm
 

I'll list many songs done by the Rock and Roll groups for the last half of the B's.  Remember my music library alphabetises by first name rather than last, so for those who want to vote on that Jimmy Buffet song will have to wait till I get to the J's.  This is a partial list of songs, if I listed all the songs these groups performed, I'd be typing most of the day. 

Like the first half of the letter B, vote for your 4 favorite here as well.  If you haven't voted on my previous entries please do as there are ties to be broken.

Again, after I list the songs, I'll list my four picks.  Cut and paste or highlight and drag my entry onto your response when you vote if you know how.  If not just list your votes and I'll get back later and include your vote into the tally.

Here's the list....

    Vote for Your Favorite Songs - Letter B Part 2

    I'll vote for songs already mentioned, at least this time.

    1.  Born to Run -  Best memory of this song, 5 college kids in 1977, rolling down I-70 with the windows open singing like Bruce, loudly and proudly.  We got more stares from passers-by's than we normally did.

    2.  You Give Love a Bad Name - Wish this song would have been around in college.   Could have used it in the 'Ville (Maryville) a few times.

    3.  Rock and Roll Band -  Didn't we all want to be in a band and discovered, even if we had abosolutely zero talent.

    4.  Burning For You -   Favorite MTV tune and video when I was on the road as a salesperson in the early 80's.
