    "You Don't Move Me" from Keith Richards and the X-Pensive Winos' "Talk Is Cheap" album/CD. This song was an anti-love letter from Keef to Mick during yet another period when they weren't getting along. The lyrics are good, but something about the chord progression really speaks to me.

    This one always reminds me of my Dad. He was always a sheltering rock in a storm for me.

  8. I could probably list ten songs, real quick like. And if I did, this one would be near the top. Grab a clean glass, a new bottle, & turn the lights down:

  9. I saw Willie sing that in person several years ago here in Indiana. Quite powerful.

    Never fails to send chills up my spine and bring a tear to my eyes:

  12. Don't know if you play an instrument or not but it's a good song to feed into GarageBand or such program, then pick the part you want to play & play along.
     
  13. Here's two versions of another on my list. It's hard to study about what happened at Montezuma because there were 2-3 Kings who ruled under that name. It gets confusing. But I do know what the Spaniards did to the Puebloian & Navajo people's under the disguise of spreading their religion.

    Cortez the Killer -- Neil Young




    Cortez the Killer -- Potter & Satriani

    One night when I was 19, back in 1988, I dropped my girlfriend home across town after a night out dancing with some friends and I pulled up in my drive way at about 1am. In my car stereo I had a best-of Roy Orbison tape playing. There, in the dark silence alone, Roy's original 1963 recording of "In Dreams" came on, and I sat there with it turned up, the beauty and the sadness of the chords and melody washing over me, the brilliance of his singular voice filling me with emotion. Pure genius.

    Two other songs, both by Patsy Cline, also give me that feeling: "Crazy" and "Faded Love." Not just excetional songwriting, but exceptional performances to match, too.

    Thanks HD. Now you've put those videos up, it's dawned on me that everyone else has the songs they've mentioned linked in this thread. Wakey wakey Benny Holiday . . .

  19. I always think of my wife with this one — when we met and yet today. Dylan penned it, but his rendition is not my favorite.



    I heard this version the other day and liked it:
