Just a Friend--Biz Markee
This song reminds me of high school. Plus Biz is so off key I laugh every time
If I had $1,000,000--Barenaked Ladies
Another happy, funny song
A Change is Gonna Come--Sam Cooke
I fell in love with this song when I was watching ALI.
Paint It, Black--Rolling Stones
I have loved this song since I heard it as an intro to a TV show about Vietnam.
Blues (kind of)
When Love Comes to Town--BB King and U2
One of my fave songs. Play this when I need to focus and clear my mind.
Drinking Songs (Country)
Its Five O'Clock Somewhere--Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett
Its Hard to Be Humble--Mac Davis
All of these are fun, upbeat, playful country songs. The first two are a few years old, while the last one is new. The Mac Davis song brings back memories of hanging out at the pizza parlor as a young kid after Mom's softball games. When they would sing that song most of the time they got together after a game, especially when they won.
Fighting Songs (Alternative)
Rooster--Alice in Chains
