You’re probably already aware that we’ve been getting a lot of requests to resurrect some of the old songs we played during our downtime.
But there are some that are more relevant to our modern times.
So if you’re in the mood for a bit of nostalgia, here are 10 of our favorite songs.1.
“The Last Train to Clarksville” by The Dollyrots (1951)As with so many classic rock songs, the “Last Train” is a classic and has a timeless vibe to it.
The Dollywood’s song was written and recorded in 1951, but it’s always nice to revisit this timeless tune and revisit what was good at the time.2.
“Alfred” by Al Green (1946)If you’ve ever played “The Blue Album” you know that Green has a special place in our hearts.
It’s not just because he was a great blues guitarist, but because he wrote songs like “The Ballad of Buster” and “The Band.”
Green’s “A New Day” is one of the best-known songs on the album, and the album is often regarded as the definitive Green tune.3.
“I Am Not a God” by Elton John (1947)If there’s one song that has stuck with us since we were kids, it’s probably Elton’s “I’m the One.”
He sings about love and longing, and it’s such a fitting song to sing about.4.
“We’re So Lonesome Together” by the Rolling Stones (1955)We were lucky enough to see the Rolling Stone on The Late Show with David Letterman a few years ago.
We got to hear them perform their hit song, “We Can’t Stop” during a live interview.
While it may not be a particularly classic rock tune, it still holds up pretty well today.5.
“Homeward Bound” by Jimi Hendrix (1961)If Hendrix were still around today, he would probably be one of our favorites, but this song is a tribute to Jimi’s late love, Linda.
This is the song he sang while he was in the hospital after a car crash, which caused him to fall into a coma.6.
“In The Morning” by Billy Joel (1969)This is one song I’m a huge fan of, and one I’ve never forgotten.
The band did a song with Billy in 1972 called “Let’s Be Friends,” and this is a song I remember when I was a kid.
It was one of my favorite songs to listen to when I had a bad cold.7.
“When I Grow Up” by Neil Young (1972)This song is so timeless, and you can’t imagine the joy and happiness Neil Young felt as he recorded this song in 1969.
This song was a hit when he recorded it, and is now a staple of his setlists at stadiums and concerts.8.
“Lonely” by Elvis Presley (1976)This track has such a timeless feel to it that it’s hard to imagine anyone being able to write a song that sounds as good as Elvis.
His voice is still so strong and clear, and his lyrics still resonate.9.
“All The Things You Can’t Leave Behind” by Stevie Wonder (1977)I know that you have all heard the Beatles’ classic “All the Things You can’t Leave Home.”
This song is another classic that Stevie wrote and performed as a teenager.
I think it’s the perfect tribute to Stevie and his amazing voice.10.
“Don’t Stop Me Now” by Paul Simon (1978)Paul Simon’s “Don’s Song” is so iconic that it has become a staple at shows and in music festivals.
The song is timeless, yet it still stands as a timeless classic.
