In a recent late night conversation with a good friend, the topic of music rose to the surface. The question: What is your favorite song? As a person that believes music motivates and enhances your life, it was interesting to consider.
With this blog, my purpose has always been to discuss sales, marketing, business, and so on. I have a certain formula and pattern that leads to a consistent message. Well, this close to Independence Day, I am flipping the free bird to consistency and taking a moment to share the songs that I consider the greatest. I hope you enjoy.
So Lonely – The Police.
A little bit rock, a little bit reggae, a little bit punk – this song blends my favorite genres of music perfectly.
Folsom Prison Blues – Johnny Cash.
The pain and self-awareness of mistakes made. The mention of my hometown Reno. This one gives me chills.
Bring It On Home To Me – Sam Cooke.
The sad longing for love. The soulful passion of a beautiful voice. The simple instrumentation. If I had to listen to one song for the rest of my life, this might be it.
She Said – The Pharcyde.
You might like hip-hop and you might only be exposed to the crap they play on the radio. This is a passionate, stylish song to keep your head nodding.
You Are The Best Thing – Ray Lamontagne.
A week away from my 10th wedding anniversary, this song makes me think of my wonderful wife. Infinite in her patience, constantly filling my life with love and acceptance, my world is incomplete without her. The beauty of the song swells my appreciation for my one true love.
Although these are my Top-5, there is a lot of other music I love. In this blog, I have written about Snoop, Slash, Beastie Boys, Vokab Kompany, Black Joe Lewis, and others. I have shared these passions with you. I encourage you to comment with your favorite song or band. This blog gets about 3,000 views a month – I’m sure the audience would love to hear your suggestions.
