Back in the days before I lost my hearing, listening to music was my favorite past time. The songs of the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s were playing on the radio and I loved to sing along. Now, I am not the greatest singer, just great in my own world. With my ear damage, my voice is very off key (so those who are in my company tell me!), but I still enjoy singing to songs I remember even though I can't hear the radio anymore.. We all have one or more songs we enjoy. What songs are on your list?

An oldie but goodie, I liked Bing Crosby.
Wow, your library of music is cool. I love Henry Mancini's music - the Pink Panther, Peter Gunn and several other themes. I'm going to hear Pink Panther in my head all afternoon. LOL
I suspect if you set the bass right you should be able to feel Peter Gunn.
I can feel thumping of bass, but the melody is what I can't hear. I improvise and hear songs in my head from "memory."
I saw (and heard) Eric Clapton perform Layla in concert when I was in England (1982/3?). I remember it as being a very long song. I've heard several shorter versions near the end of the 1980's. I thought the lyrics were inspiring. Good song :)
I think that Michael Jackson was an extraordinary talent, from the time he was a little boy. The song and subsequent project he collaborated on - We Are The World - was sheer genius. His music will never get old.
The only chanting type song I can remember from my hearing days is "Give Peace A Chance" by the Beatles. I don't recall the Al Green song you mentioned nor do I know the other two bands. Thx for answering :)
Love Rock! But I always associated Disco with teenagers. It was all the craze in the 70's and early 80's and my kids enjoyed it. It was way after my teen years. Donna Summer was the only one I liked, so sad she is gone now. TY for reply :)
