A tough question for me as I don't really listen on 'shuffle' have too many kids books on there so my pink floyd would be interrupted by a chapter from Harry Potter :lol:

I have a strange and eclectic taste in music, I love classical, 70's-80s rock in all degrees from Bon Jovi to Slayer, pet shop boys , simple minds, aha - every one of theirs !

So I listen according to my mood and what I haven't listened to for a while - life has sadly become so busy I very very rarely get to listen to a whole album any more - one of my previous obsessions was listening to them all.

There are the odd songs that make me stop and go 'ooo' though

Shine on you crazy diamond, is a work of genius , Hotel California is brilliant and a few other far to obscure to mention :lol:

I go through "phases" where I'll listen to specific types or groups of music. Maybe it's classical, maybe it's fingerstyle guitar, pop, jazz, or Disney music. I've got favorite playlists for all of the genres. I suppose though, if I had a few favorite songs that I almost never miss, it would have to be ones like:


"He's a Pirate" from Pirates of the Caribbean
"Colors of the Wind" from Pocahontas
"Be Our Guest" from Beauty and the Beast
"The Bells of Notre Dame" from the The Hunchback of Notre Dame
"Reflections of Earth" from Epcot Illuminations


"Rhapsody in Blue" by George Gershwin
"March of the Jazz Angels" by Larry Carlton
"Bali Run" by Fourplay
"Birds with Long Legs" by Dave and Don Grusin
"The Girl from Ipanema" by Antonio Carlos Jobim
"Good News" by Fattburger
"Max-o-Man" by Fourplay
"One Wish" by Hiroshima
"Only In My Dreams" by Acoustic Alchemy
"Puerto Banus" by Paul Hardcastle
"She Walks This Earth" by Sting
"Welcome To The St. James' Club" by Russ Freeman and the Rippingtons

Fingerstyle Guitar:

"Classical Gas" by Tommy Emmanuel
"Lewis and Clark" by Tommy Emmanuel
"Mombasa" by Tommy Emmanuel
"Superstition" by Pete Huttlinger - (from his Stevie Wonder tribute album)
"Sir Duke" by Pete Huttlinger - (from his Stevie Wonder tribute album)
"The Wind and the Wheat" by Phil Keaggy


"An American in Paris" by George Gershwin
"Rhapsody in Blue" by George Gershwin (yes, he gets double billing)
"Fanfare for the Common Man" by Aaron Copland
"Rodeo - IV. Hoe-Down" by Aaron Copland
"Clare De Lune" by Claude Debussey
"Bolero" by Maurice Ravel
"Rhapsody On A Theme By Paganini" by Sergei Rachmaninoff

I know, you didn't ask for my whole play list. I got carried away. But that's a sampling of some of the things that I like to listen to over and over again.

I'll be quiet now. :tape:

Tom (:macwave:... eclectic. At best.)

Hmm, let's see.

There are 2 Bon Jovi songs I don't miss either: Superman and I'll Be There For You

I also love Chain Gang by Sam Cooke.

Blimey that brings back some memories. I was very close to my cousin growing up and I went to a couple of 'Jovi gigs with her.

I'll be there for you and Blood on blood mean a lot to us

'through the years and miles between us, its been a long and lonely ride, but if I got that call in the dead of night I'd be right by your side'
