Some songs grow on me,others I just love the first time I hear them.Like these:
Aerosmith's "Pink".
Jewel's "down so long"
Nirvana's "smell's like teen spirit"-i didn't even know the lyrics at first(which don't make a lot of sense btw).
A song by Joe cocker,I think it's called "The one you turn to" or somethig to that effect.I've never heard it again,byw.
The beegees' "This is where I came in"
Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet home alabama".It's in the movie conair.That's where I first heard it.Then I requested a local radio dj to play it,and he did(he's the one who infact told me who's sung it and what it's called).I've never heard it since.I loved the sound of that guitar.
Nickelback's "How you remind me".Mainly it was the way they play in the parts where the sing "I've been wronged,I've been down...." that did it for me,the muting.
Matchbox 20's "Mad season".
Three doors down's "Kryptonite".The guitar,the bass,the drums,the pace.
Train's "Meet virginia".
Bon Jovi's "Two story town",from "Crash",the same album that had "It's my life",a song which I don't even dig,but is what you're most likely to hear on radio from Bon Jovi.
And some jazz arrangement called "Take five".

I forgot this one.
The song at the end of Bedazzled.That Liz Hurley movie.I don't know what it's called.I suspect it's by Eagle eye cherry,tho' I could be wrong.It sounds very neat.

About every song by Lorrena Mckennitt.

I don't really fall in love with heavy songs. Ballads are the ones that gets me.

I'm not somber enough to fully answer this thread, but "Take five" is a Dave rubeck tune that is called take five because it is in 5/4 time. It was in fact written by Paul Desmond, but is you want to hear it, look for Dave Brubeck, because he was the band leader when it was released. Great tune, by the way.

I have a few of her albums. I've gotta admit though . . . a friend of mine at my old job burned them for me. *shrug*

From all our chats and emails, I know you're into celtic and ethnic music. You definitely want to check out the albums "Book of Secrets" and "The Mask and Mirror" by Loreena. There's not a single bad song on either of them.

and this one too:
En Vogue's "Don't let go".I love that guitar there.
And when the song "Love is all around" by wet wet wet,the one that goes "I feel it in my fingers,I feel it in my toes...".
If you have the full song,there's some guitar lick at the very start.I love that too.

I dig a little Lorrena Mckennitt. My Dad has one of her albums. I like differnt kinds of music like that. Another group that you guys might like are Celestial Winds. This guy playes two recorders at the same time. Very cool.
As for songs I fell in love with the first time I heard them are Human's Being by Van Halen and probably Lay Your Hands On Me by Bon Jovi (its catchy) and Crying in the Rain by Whitesnake, The End by the Doors, Erotic Nighmares by Steve Vai, stuff like that.
And God said, 'Let there be rock!'
-And it was good

the music or the orgy?
To improve technique and of course trying to keep all as clean as possible. I know my own limits and speed limits and so on I never play anything I'm not capable of. That wouldn't make any sense. After three years of playing I tried to play everything as fast as possible and that sounded, I would say, like shit, and I didn't realize that if I'd play bit slower things than I was capable of playing then everything would sound much better.

Green Day-When I Come Around
- Good Riddance
Rolling Stones-Angie
-Jumpin' Jack Flash
-Sympathy For The Devil
Beatles-Let It Be

And the one i forgot, which happens to be the most memorable one: The Rolling Stones-Sister Morphine
This song the first time I heard it, I don't know, it actually gave me chills, i just kept listening to it over, and over again. Awesome guitar, and then when the slide guitar comes in, in the second verse, WOW, awesome song.
Electric Guitars are the inspiration for cries of "Turn that damn thing down"-Gibson website

And TLC's REd light special.I like songs like that that aren't totally guitar based,but have some nice guitar with a beautiful sustain...
I think that's the song that will be playing in our honeymoon suite when me and my new wife finally get there on the wedding night.
