Vote for Your Favorite Songs - B thru Billy Joel

Posted on: August 18, 2008 12:13 pm
 

It would be an unstatement to say that I was pleased with the response I got on my first entry.  Voting for favorite songs from number bands and bands starting with "A" can be continued until Sunday, August 24th.    Thanks to all of you who respond.

There are so many songs from bands with the letter B that I'll have to split it in half.  The Beatles, Bad Company and Billy Joel produced so many hit songs and other songs that strike a chord with people that I have a pageful.   So in the second half of the B's on my entry will have songs from other bands with many hits such as Billy Squier, Bob Seger, Bon Jovi and Boston. 

Again, this list is not complete as there are many other songs by bands in this alphabetical category.  Feel free to pick a song you don't see as long as it falls between B and Billy Joel.  Voting on this entry will go until Monday, August 25th. 

Since this list is a bit longer than the A's, you may choose up to 4 songs on this entry.  Please try to help in keeping score by cutting and pasting to vote total onto your entry when you vote.  If you're not good at cut and paste, thats fine, vote anyway, I'll get it straighted out.

Okay, remember, you can vote for 4.  Here's my list...

  • Every Time I think of You  -  The Babies
  • Burning Sky - Bad Company
  • Can't Get Enough - Bad Company
  • Feel Like Making Love - Bad Company
  • Ready For Love - Bad Company

  • The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down -- The Band (not on list)
  • Eleanor Rigby - The Beatles 
  • Eyes Without a Face - Billy Idol
  • Big Shot - Billy Joel
  • I was a good boy and picked from the list (with one important exception), but there are tons more Beatles songs I would have put down and a few other Billy Idol songs better than Eyes.

    I have to go all Beatles.  They are the best band in history!  Without the Beatles we may not even have Rock and Roll!  Some are not on the list.

    While My Guitar Gently Weeps

    Strawberry Fields Forever

    The Long and Winding Road

    Hey Jude

    You're so right Bluesman about Billy Joel and the Beatles.  Such incredible song writers.  Billy Joel is one of my top three artists.  IMO his every song is a hit to me in the albums Piano Man, The Stranger and Innocent Man.  The Beatles isn't exactly quite my style but I find it hard not to sing along to their tunes when I listen to them.

    Rhino,
    thanks for joining me in A Day In The Life.

    My pleasure johnny.
    Awesome song, eh?/
    I love the way the song shifts like three different times and then it finishes with the longest note in rock and roll history.
