      All the sights and sounds
      This little world's too crowded now
      And there's only one way out
      An elevator ride
      Through the tunnel towards the light
      And I'm nowhere bound
      Keep going up and down
      Up and down

      Milk Thistle by Conor Oberst

    because i work with the elderly, and they love some of the oldies, i have found myself reaching out and enjoying Dean Martin more and more.  His songs put everyone in a really good mood. I will go to Youtube and put up a link to one of our faves.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hz2cZx118P0

    everyone where i work sings along to this, all the staff even whatever there age.

    I really think that Harry Nilsson's song,  "Everybody's talkin",
    is one of the best songs I have ever heard.  It was also the theme song for the movie "Midnight Cowboy".

    "California Dreamin" by The Mamas and the Papas is pretty timeless. I mean, I don't sit around and rock out on it 24/7, but when I hear it come on a radio station, or in a movie, it just never gets old.

    Oh this is easy...
    For Rock N Roll:
    Paradise City by Guns N Roses...
    One of the most classic lines in rock "Take me down to the paradise city where the grass is green and the girls are pretty... Oh please take me home!!!"

    For R&B:
    Darn near anything from Michael Jackson - Wanna be Sarting Something, Billy Jean, Smooth Criminal, They Dont Care About Us to name a few.

    For Blues:
    I gotta go with Mannish Boy by Muddy Waters... That guitar riff has been used by so many since then

    For Metal:
    Gotta go with War Pigs by Black Sabbath... The ong came out in the 70s and is still listened to by teenagers listening to metal today.
