My "Probably the Best Song in the History of the Whole World"

My pal, Bunnie Diehl, has graciously tagged me to come up with the best song - and I quote - "in the history of the whole world." You should check out her list. I'd say it's eclectic, but eclecto-freaky is probably more apt. And she said I can name more than one. I'll stick with pop/rock songs. So fasten your seat belts, 'cause here goes nuthin...

  • Free Bird by Lynrd Skynrd. Seems an obvious choice, I know. But it still moves me. Get the movie Duets and check out Andre Braugher doing it a' cappella. It's way good.

  • Tom's Diner by Suzanne Vega. Always makes me wistful.

  • Don't Bring Me Down by Electric Light Orchestra

  • Mr. Blue Sky by Electric Light Orchestra. I really fell for this one watching Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

  • Save Me by Aimee Mann. She almost won the Oscar for this song from the Magnolia soundtrack. We saw her in a live outdoor concert a couple of weeks ago. We had great seats. It was a beautiful evening. And she was incredible. O happy day.

  • Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band by the Fab 4. Or Let It Be or Hey Jude or Twist and Shout.

  • Johnny B Good. The Jimmi Hendrix version. I went to the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame and saw the footage of him playing this and it completely floored me.

  • I Got a Woman by Ray Charles. Rent Ray and tell me if you don't think Jamie Fox was so good it's scary.

  • Moondance or Domino by Van Morrison. My wife and I often say that we just don't have enough Van Morrison in our life.

  • Sunrise by Norah Jones. It really makes me feel like the sun is rising. But I also like her Don't Know Why.

  • Train Song by Mindy Smith. Also Come to Jesus. She's got a voice and style that is just warm and comforting.

  • I've Been Everywhere by Johnny Cash. I used to hate him. Now I can't get enough of him.

  • Who Are You by the Who. Who? Saw them do this at the concert for America in New York after 9/11 and my feet began to dance. All by themselves. It just happened.
Well, I could go on and on naming the best songs in the History of the Whole World, but I need to sleep.

That was fun. So now I tag Pastor Tom Chryst, Pastor David Petersen, and Pastor Greg Alms.
