    Are there any songs that you never get tired of, and still give goosbumps. Been listening to these songs over 20 years and are still a joy to listen to.

    Not any particulare order:

    Neil Young: "Over and Over" from Raged Glory
    Frank Sinatra: "New York New York" from theme song
    Simple Minds:"Speed Your Love To Me" from Sparkle In Rain
    Eddie Rabbit: "You Can't Run From Love" from Radio Romance

    The kind of songs that come on the radio when you're driving and when you get to your destination you sit in the car and wait till the song finishes.

    Won't Get Fooled Again........The Who
    Tchaikovsky's .....................1812 Overture
    Neil Young's .......................Down By The River

    LOL! I did this yesterday for Pink Floyd's Welcome to the Machine. :)

    A few others that come to mind are:
    Manfred Mann's version of Blinded by the Light.
    Anything by Pink Floyd that isn't Money, or off of The Wall.
    Anything by David Bowie that isn't Fame or Changes.

    Can't think of anything else of the top of my head, but I know that there are more.

    I never get tired of any Fleetwood Mac songs. Awesome group of song writers, vocalists and musicians. There were no bad songs on Rumors or the 1975 Fleetwood Mac albums. Not like the one hit wonders of today.

    Damn, I just proved I am old again!

    If old means being alive when music was really good..........I'm guilty too.

    Its funny just as couple of days ago me and coworker were discussing this song and how Commodores with this song proved that they can survive without Lionel Richie as lead singer. Excellent song :)

    I'm really enjoying not having to get up at 5:15 to get ready for work. 7:15 is a much more civilized time to get up. The coffee is ready, the news is on, the sun is up.

    Ha! At my new job, I'm getting up at 3:15! Luckily, I'm an early riser.

    Now, what to do with myself after I get home at 2:30!?! :eyesroll:

    I love oldies, including the following:

    -Heaven's is just a sin away by The Kendalls
    -I fell in love again last night by The Forrester sisters.

    They are truly beautiful and memorable songs.
