i'm one...by the who.

can't tell if this one is full of self esteem and positive-ness...or wallowing in self pity. but it features the best harmonies the band has ever done.

Great song chris...thanks for that. Quadrophenia is a classic that doesn't get enough love.  :)

I honour of Mr. Jones.....maybe more famous for sad songs, I remember hearing this one a lot around the house when I was a kid.

When you led off this topic with Al Stewart, it reminded me that I just found a YouTube channel, Avro (http://www.youtube.com/user/webportalavro?feature=watch), with some excellent-quality videos from the 70's and early 80's.

Al Stewart has several on this channel, including this one of "On The Border": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QU0aaoZuWnw (haven't heard this song for ages!)

Guess who I chose for my song of the day (from February 1975!): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PatEynaDidk

Been listening to a lot of early ZZ Top lately, this one from 1973 has a good groove - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PdjllsV-g3M

...and this is their first ever single from 1969 - 'Salt Lick': http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dfjAcPRrFfE

Was scrolling through my ipod and realized I'd never loaded Rod Stewart's "Footloose and Fancy Free" CD onto it....fixed that, post-haste!

This is my fave from that CD:

Loving the new album by Andrew Stockdale (ex Wolfmother), this is his new single 'Long Way To Go' -

That's a killer riff....kinda reminds me of Lenny Kravitz. I guess I'm gonna have to check out some of this guy's stuff.

There's a track on the new album called 'Of The Earth', and features this wonderful off-the-hook guitar riff that reminded me a lot of 'Are You Gonna Go My Way', not melodically, but it serves the same function - a really appealing catchy lead guitar hook that opens the song and permeates throughout it.

I wanted to see Wolfmother when they were on the same bill as Macca at the Hard Rock Calling in London 2010.. but they pulled out because Stockdale was striken with illness and were replaced with The Hives (they were great too!). But I finally got to see them this year when they supported Aerosmith here in New Zealand. By then, Stockdale had already announced that he had gone solo and these would be the final Wolfmother concerts. They were sooo sooo good! The general vibe I got from people who went, all agreed that they were just as impressive as Aerosmith - I can't disagree with that!

There's not much of his solo stuff on YouTube unfortunately (seems to be tightly controlled).. this is one of the original Wolfmother hits - 'Dimension' (keeping the tradition of power trios going thru into the 21st century!) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bjJ7KCBykVU

I'd never heard of this dude until yesterday.....saw a recommendation on a power pop FB page and dug it right away:

That's a great song....I like all the change ups...keeps it interesting.  :) I'm sure I said this somewhere else, but this is a good song for Michael Buble to cover. Somebody should call him .  ;D
