Not mine in the sense that I sang them of course. But songs that I hear and bring back memories or feelings or that just had real meaning at the time. And these aren't in any particular order. Except maybe the first. The rest will be as they pop into my head. I'm kind of curious of how the genres will group. :) (gone back and bolded the ones that are at the very top of my lists)
You Were on my Mind by the We Five. Best. Song. Ever.
Baby it's You by Smith. God I love this song. Very soulful.
I'll Never Find Another You. The Seekers.
Burning Bridges by the Mike Curb Congregation. Partly because of the movie Kelly's Heros.
Don't Think Twice by The Wonder Who. Actually the Four Seasons of course. Sung a bit silly but still says a lot.
Walk Away Renee by The Left Banke. (hmm, some of this list is being influenced by how it pops up on YouTube as I browse through)
To Sir With Love by Lulu. Together with the movie it meant quite a bit.
Different Drum by the Stone Poneys. God I love Linda Ronstadt.
Long Long Time. Oh look it's Linda again. This song can almost make me cry.
So Lonesome I Could Cry. The BJ Thomas version is the one that I remember the most.
Alone Again, Naturally by Gilbert O'Sullivan. I was living in Georgia when this came out. Or at least that's the memories I have associated with it.
Oh man, almost forgot! At Seventeen by Janis Ian and her Society's Child. Two very important songs to me.
Everybody's Talkin' by Nilsson. From Midnight Cowboy. Back when it was an X-rated adult film. :)
Piece of my Heart by Janis Joplin. Another great singer taken from us way too soon.
I could put almost anything by Jim Croce. Although not Big Bad Leroy Brown and Don't Mess around with Jim. Those were just toss away song. Operator. One Less Set of Footsteps. Lovers Cross.
I seem to be getting into the 70's year but I need to mention You Don't Own Me by Lesley Gore. To me this said a lot about how a man should treat a woman. I've tried to live up to it.
End of the World by Dusty Springfield. Back to the 60's.
We'll Sing in the Sunshine by Gayle Garnett. great song.
Lightning Strikes by Lou Christie.
Ok, more later.
