Just One Song, Part 2
Hey, folks. Well, Just One Song part 1 was fun, wasn't it?
Seems like the secret to this is to find artists who have done a lot of music, are known enough to evince opinions, but may not be as hard to pick just one song from. Of course, it really is impossible to choose just one song from a great artist, because our minds change so much that tomorrow's favorite may not be even in your mind today.
But it can be fun to do the exercise anyway!
So let's make it a semi-regular feature. Every two or three times I do this game, I'll put every respondent's name in a hat, pick out a name, and send the lucky one a custom mix CD. So here's part two...
If you could only have one song from each of the following acts, what song would it be?
*Simon & Garfunkel
*Paul Revere & the Raiders
Below, should you wish to peruse, are my selections...thanks for reading and checking in!
Simon & Garfunkel: Extremely tough choice; I often like their album tracks better than their singles. "Flowers Never Bend with the Rainfall," from 1966, has everything I love about S&G in spades.
The Platters: "Only You," one of my mother's favorite songs.
Paul Revere & the Raiders: Surprisingly tough; so many A-1 singles. I'll go with "The Great Airplane Strike," one of the great guitar 45s of the 1960s.
The Clash: "Brand New Cadillac."
