Songs That I Love

Some of my Favorite songs ( I am limiting myself to one song from each group)

Queen – Who wants to live forever
This was used in the movie “The Highlander”. The movie is about a group of immortals that are fighting for a prize but that’s not why I like the song. In the movie Conner Macleod (the main character) gets married to a mortal before he himself knows he is immortal. And after he finds out he is immortal he still stays with her right to the moment she dies in his arms from old age. So who wants to live forever anyways?

Alice in Chains – Nutshell (unplugged)
To me this song is about how Lane Staley felt about his life and how it pained him. The main part I love about this song is the solos performed by Jerry Cantrell mostly the ending solo. If you listen to this song sit back relax, don’t expect a complicated song, its not, the lyrics are pretty simple but the guitar work is pretty melodic.

Dire Straits – Brothers in Arms
A song about war and the horrible effects from it. It’s a slow peaceful song, maybe it’s the way you would feel just before you let lose your mortal coil.

And a few more I wont go into.

Marc Cohn – Old Soldier
Green Day – Wake me up when September ends (I’m still debating if Good Rid. Is better)
Stone Temple Pilots – Big Empty
Pearl Jam – Jeremy
