Hiya! I do not really have any exact favourite songs, but my favourite bands are Muse and Sigur Ros! Anyone listen to them?

I've always been a sucker for ballads.

"Last Kiss" is a song that was written by Wayne Cochran in 1962 and originally performed by Wayne Cochran & the C.C. Riders, although their version of the song had little success.[1] The song was later covered by J. Frank Wilson and the Cavaliers, Wednesday, Pearl Jam, and several international artists, all of whom had success with the song.

...Wayne Cochran was initially inspired to write the song after having lived near a dangerous highway where several accidents had occurred yearly.[1] Cochran began writing the song in 1956. He came up with the song's chord progression, first verse, and chorus, although five years would pass before Cochran finished the song.[1]

Cochran based the rest of the song on an incident in which several teens were killed and two seriously injured when their car struck a flatbed logging truck.[2] Sixteen-year-old Jeanette Clark was out on a date in Barnesville, Georgia on December 22, 1962, the Saturday before Christmas. She was with a group of friends in a 1954 Chevrolet. J. L. Hancock, also sixteen, was driving the car in heavy traffic and while traveling on Highway 341, collided with a trailer truck. Clark, Hancock, and another teenager were killed, and two other teens in the car were seriously injured.[3] Cochran finished the song, which he titled "Last Kiss", and dedicated it to Clark.

Yeah baby! I'll call your scary 70's and raise you a Hustle. The author of this song agonized over the lyrics for years before finally completing his masterpiece.

Sigur Ros is great. You've got to see them live, if that hasn't already happened.

This one is for Ivan. (and no, it's not because of Sting's weird hair!)


BTW, this song was getting heavy rotation in country-themed juke joints even before Toby Keith glommed onto it.

I think the screams of that crowd [Go Away Little Girl] approach the maximum frequency of human hearing! :biggrin:

I remember my sister playing this stuff for hours on end.

I noticed recently that someone posted a couple of songs done by an old buddy of mine.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wrHoa36xRFk

This was by far Jeff's biggest hit - We'll never have to say goodbye again. It was ultimately released by england dan & john ford coley and did very well on the charts - I think it was number one for a time.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BocR0Pu25Kk

Jeff was also responsible for some of the music in the movie, Midnight Cowboy, and much of his stuff was done by other artists. Years later he returned to school, at which time I drug his butt through chemistry. :biggrin: We had been buddies for about six months when I first visited him at home. At that point I knew nothing of his music career, so you can imagine my surprise when I walked into his livingroom and saw I think six gold albums hanging on the wall!

One of the best songs ever has got to be Metallica's Master of Puppets.
