Soothes My Soul

Remember when "Suzie" wore her dresses tight When Elton John was Singin' 'bout "Saturday night" Singin' bout the rocket man and his old blue jeans While Arlo Guthrie sung a song 'bout a train down in New Orleans Remember Led Zeppelin when they first came out The Beatles were Singin' songs that would make you "Twist-N-Shout" Pink Floyd was Singin' "Money"- wasn't off the "Wall" But "Mandy" hit the top charts...if I do recall Talkin' 'bout the era 'round nineteen seventy-five Right before the disco music came alive I don't know 'bout you, but I still like my Rock-N-Roll Jerry G. and Johnny Cash and Billy Joel Bruce Springsteen's got my number when I'm "Out On The Streets" Rolling Stones- "Painted Black"...has some really cool beats Elvis Presley was an influence ...he is said to be the "King" But Charlie Daniel's "That Devil" Well, he sure could sing Meatloaf came about like a "Bat Out Of Hell" Neil Diamond sung "Sweet Caroline" and he sang it well The Doors sung a song 'bout "The Soft Parade" David Bowie's "Space Oddity" really made the grade Eric Clapton picking on his lead guitar People say Jeff Beck was the best guitarist...by far So many great guitarist's it's so hard for me to to choose Johnny Winter and Muddy Waters sure can play those blues Remembering all the music from the good old days Jimi Hendricks Sang a song 'bout some kind of "Purple Haze" Jethro Tull was Singin' songs 'bout a "Locomotive Breathe" And Elton sung a song about "Diana's" death Bob Seger sang a song..."That good ole...Rock-N-Roll" Gotta love that music, that just soothes my soul Remembering all the music from my younger years So many great musicians- brings my soul to tears

Very nostalgic and amazing poem. Those were the days my friend. How about Danny's Song? It was sung by Loggins and Messina, and was my favorite song right before my first baby boy was born. My husband and I played it over and over, it made us cry! You share the same name as the artist.

No, but that would have been so cute! We had chosen family names honoring his daddy and two grandpa's, they were all so honored and excited about that. The names were chosen before he was even on his way :-)
