2. The Question / Moody Blues

3. Baba O’Riley /The Who or any other song on Who’s Next.

5. My Favorite Things/John Coltrane: So many moods in here I get lost.

7. Tell Me Why/Neal Young

8. Piece of My Heart/ Big Brother and The Holding Company: Because Janis knew about the blues.

  1. What an varied list! I LOVE “Idiot Wind.” The lyrics are so bitter and great. Dylan wrote it when he was getting divorced.

    Dylan just seems to have a way of capturing the feeling and I just love singing his songs loud. He is such a good role model for people with no voice to speak of.
