What Are Your Five Favorite Songs?

I thought that this would be a fun topic. If you could play five of your favorite songs on the radio, which ones would you pick? Which songs do you hold dearest to your heart?

I've listed mine below.

Times are hard

Who can do the job for free

CHORUS:
I'm a fool to do your dirty work
Oh yeah
I don't wanna do your dirty work
No more
I'm a fool to do your dirty work
Oh yeah

LOL!

Nat King Cole-Send for me.. Credence Clearwater revival-Born on the Bayou.. Dean Martin-Your nobody till somebody loves you.. Bobby Gentry-Ode to Billy Joe.. The Hollies-The air that I Breathe. Here are five of my favorite songs. I look forward to hearing more great music on your show. I never thought any show could top Fox and friends. You are unique in all the world. I can count on you and your team to provide endless belly laughs..What is the name of the song with the really fast guitar riffs that you play before you go to a break? I loved your bondage brownie story today. Do you have an official fan club? I look
forward to your show every morning. Sincerely, Margi Wright

CG --

Notes on your hands is called a Hillbilly Teleprompter. I'm a (little bit) Hillbilly so I know from experience.

Sarah could learn from Dagen to use an acronym. I'll never forget PIGS -- Portugal, Italy, Greece, and Spain. Thanks, Dagen.

Acronyms got me through graduate school -- writing on my hands got me through 4th grade. I'm just sayin'.

Barrack said...

4th grade? wow, sounds like an insult. Time to donate more money to Palin.

Palin is so smart! She certainly knows how to generate dollars! The more insults, the more that green cash flows in...

Andrew Cuomo said...

Wonder if Imus will ask David Patterson what his 5 favorite songs are?!

Al said...

My 5 favorites...

1. 'Can't you hear me knocking', by The Stones!

2. 'Pink Cadillac, by The Boss!

3. 'Memphis', by Lonnie Mack

4. 'The Wanderer', by the Great DION!

5..'Love Shack', by the B-52's

Dave Hartley said...

I'm a jazz guitarist, so my list has NO chance of being played unless Charles was in charge.

Just wanted to make a comment about the "Blind Boys of Alabama". Has anybody else noticed that they aren't really singing the melody of "Amazing Grace" ? It's actually the melody to "The House of The Rising Sun".
Little bit of irony there, I would say.

Maybe I just don't get the joke, but Don should know this, considering he says he has listened to gospel music since he was a kid.

Al said...

Dave, If I remember correctly, Imus wanted the Blind Boys to sing 'House of the Rising Sun' for an upcoming Imus Ranch record, but the Blind Boys didn't want to sing that particular song...

So, maybe they are compromising by using the melody of 'House of the Rising Sun', while singing 'Amazing Grace'...

Bobbie said...

Have the "Blind Boys" recorded that version? I like it.

CG said...

Hah, I had never noticed that about the Blind Boys...that's pretty funny.

Thanks for all the songs! I actually want to check out a lot of these.

If I had to create another 5 Favorites list, I'd send in the following webpage. (My #4 song was also on here.) I CANNOT recommend this article enough, for its pure entertainment/awkward hilarity value:

The telePrompter picture is pretty good, but I really liked when they were discussing Obama's "corpsman" mistake on the program (he had mispronounced it as "corpse-man" repeatedly in a speech). Charles randomly started talking about how he had spent all this time researching archaic definitions and tons of alternate pronunciations and meanings for the word, and for some reason I found this endearing. Charles is awesome

Sarah from Alaska said...

Hi Kids,

Look what I found...the Obama-Corpsman video! haha

Quite a prosaic list of mine, I know. But in a nuclear holocaust it would definitely serve its purpose. (Actually, it's all just formality; give me any Leonard Cohen song by itself and I am content.)
