Your Ten Favorite.......Band songs

Postby BlueChair » Tue Nov 07, 2006 8:58 pm

I seem to remember there being some fans of The Band around here, so I'm hoping my installment of this game doesn't die flat in the water!

1. Daniel and The Sacred Harp
2. Acadian Driftwood
3. Stage Fright
4. The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down
5. Whispering Pines
6. Unfaithful Servant
7. This Wheel's On Fire
8. Up On Cripple Creek
9. Rag Mama Rag
10. The Shape I'm In
This morning you've got time for a hot, home-cooked breakfast! Delicious and piping hot in only 3 microwave minutes.

Rick Danko's was one of the most amazing singers Ive ever heard, his vocals give me goosebumps.
echos myron like a siren
with endurance like the liberty bell
and he tells you of the dreamers
but he's cracked up like the road
and he'd like to lift us up, but we're a very heavy load

That's pretty depressing, Ringhio. Assuming you like those three, I bet there are tons more that you would like if you gave them a chance.

The Band are not talked about enough! For all the praise they get they always seem underappreciated.

When You Awake
Kind Harvest (Has Surely Come)
Caledonia Mission
In A Station
The Shape I'm In
Sleeping
Across The Great Divide
To A Kingdom Come

Can you name a few?

Not Rag Mama Rag and such, possibly.

Not a country fan I guess.

Start with "Unfaithful Servant" and "Stage Fright" and see how those go

Chest fever
I don't want to hang up my rock'n'roll shoes
King Harvest has surely come
Up on cripple creek
The shape I'm in
The night they drove old dixie down
Orange juice blues
Don't do it
Across the great divide
Time to kill
Is that so surprising nowadays?

Five years late to this one yet over forty five some years of active listening and do not mind following Wardo:

1 It Makes No Difference
2 This Wheels on Fire
3 Up on Cripple Creek
4 Whispering Pines
5 King Harvest[Has Surely Come]
6 Across the Great Divide
7 The Shape I'm In
8 Stage Fright
9 Bessie Smith
10 Let the Night Fall
11 Going Back to Memphis
12 Don't Do It
13 [I Don't Want To] Hang Up My Rock and Roll Shoes

Yes- most definitely my favorite American band - there is a freshness to their material that never goes stale or sounds dated. And I appreciate the symmetry as this is my 1955 post and also my birth year and my favorite Band.
