…what’s yer top three tunes (for today) from whenever?…

…it’s almost impossible to pick yer same three all-time favourite tunes on successive days… try it, and yeez’ll see what I mean… this ol’ Jurassic grew up (yes, Mabel, supposedly , I DID grow up) during the sixties and seventies, which birthed so much fabulous music and musicians… but when I try to pick my three favs on a Monday, sure as hell, on a Tuesday, I’ll pick a trio of different harmonic gems… I was privileged to spend ten years in The Philippines, where it would seem 99.99% of the good folks there can sing, dance and play musical instruments… cover bands are big there, and in the 1990s, I was often a guest singer with a terrific band called Music Network, and we sang together lots of these tunes that have stayed constant favourites with me… top of the list is Queen and Freddy Mercury’s unbeatable ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’

…not far behind is prob’ly Guns and Roses with the amazing guitar work from Clash giving it huge with ‘Sweet Child of Mine’… I defy yeez not to have yer feet tapping away on that one…

…or for the slow rock fans, hard to top Bon Jovi ’s ‘Bed of Roses’… a masterpiece  in slow rock bluesy performance…

…these three picks are all with bands… of course I had other favourite bands, too numerous to list in this post, but there are also solo singers, male and female, who can tie my emotions in knots… on the non-pop charts, how can yeez not be enthralled by voices like those of Andrea Bocelli?… or softer music, such as from the Celtic maestros, Runrig, with their haunting tunes from the Hebrides and Gaeldom?… The Dubliners, and The Fureys with Arthur Davey, Enya and others of that ilk also get into my best billboards… enjoy these for the meantime… I’m sure they’ll change by tomorrow… see yeez later … LUV YEEZ!

  2. I wish I could have heard you sing! All of your picks are good ones. I grew up on the old Motown sound. Still love it today, but now it’s ‘oldies’. 😉

  3. Good picks, Seumas. I still like the early rock and roll pieces. Freddy Mercury’s family are are so proud of his memory. He was a Parsi. They’re the Iranians who immigrated to India long ago, keeping the ancient religion of Iran. I once drove my daughter and a friend to a Guns and Roses concert and bought t-shirts for them. 🙂 — Suzanne
