Re: Floydy's All-Time Top 1000 Tracks

No.991: “Begin The Beguine” by Julio Iglesias

A surprise that one but I also like that song. I acquired the album somehow (although I don't think I actually went into a shop and asked for it). He has a great mellow voice which just reminds me of lazing around on a sunny Spanish beach, drinking Bobadilla 103.

Re: Floydy's All-Time Top 1000 Tracks

No.988: “Stay With Me Till Dawn” by Judie Tzuke

She had a fantastic haunting voice and was surprisingly successful with this song amongst all the punk/new wave bands of '79. I'm sure she must have had other singles but this is the only one I know.

Yes, some of that or a pitcher of Sangria would go down very nicely.
He reminds me of when I went to Italy and all the wealthy Latino men would dress up in their finest suits with a classy lady on their arm, strolling along the streets on a evening.
Trouble is, you don't tell your drinking buddies you like this sort of thing as they'll lump you in with the Barry Manilow crowd or far worse, Cliff!

Beautiful song and it's very typical of the big boom in 1970s singer-songwriters. She's still making music and performing.

Re: Floydy's All-Time Top 1000 Tracks

As mentioned, a couple of lesser-known songs...

No.987: “Bride 1945”
by Paul Siebel (1970)
Folk country singer-songwriter Paul Siebel wasn’t as typically well-known as his contemporaries like Willie Nelson or Glen Campbell, but he did release two acclaimed early 70’s albums. The song* which caught my eye was this rather nice ballad from his first record ‘Woodsmoke And Oranges’. Siebel is still around and is 83 years old at the time of witing.
*Unfortunately this song isn't available anywhere on the net so I'll submit this one instead: 'Miss Cherry Lane'.



No.986: “Leave this Man Alone” by The Shiver (1969)
The Shiver were an early progressive rock band from Germany. ‘Repent Walpurgis’ was their best album and features this driving, guitar-driven epic. Oddly, I can’t find the song on YouTube only the full album so here’s that as a bonus for you. See what you think.



More tomorrow when we are to begin with who was probably the world's first female rock vocalist. I wonder if you can guess she was?

Re: Floydy's All-Time Top 1000 Tracks

Well done, Tiffany!
I think I’ll make this a regular feature at the end of the day’s selections. A little poser.

I was going put this in a batch later on but I’ll just post this one on its own for now until I get organised with the next four songs.

No.985: “(Take Another Little) Piece Of My Heart” by Big Brother & The Holding Company (featuring Janis Joplin) (1967)
From the Cheap Thrills album, a sublime offering from the hard drinking, hard living raucous blues singer and her band. The song ‘Ball & Chain’ was a contender but just missed the cut.



More soon.
