Some of my Favourite Things - Music Edition

I am sitting here waiting for the cable guy, so I thought I would actually blog! Shocking, I know... I thought I would share some of my favourite songs that I am listening to at the moment.

I started with Blue Oyster Cult. I love 'Burning for You' by them. I think I have mentioned a few times on here that the charming comedian (aka 'The Guy') sings karaoke. This is my favourite song he has been singing lately. It is kind of for a corny reason, so instead of sharing why I am just going to share the song:

And, well, actually... Here is the cc singing it. I recorded it one time with my phone:

After that, I decided to listen to some Styx. With Styx I either like them, like this song, or hate them, like 'Mr Roboto'. The song is 'Boat on the River'. It is not as well known as some of their other songs, but it is a great song!

And, I know that most of you don't like Rush, but have you ever heard the duet they did with Max Webster? The song is called 'Battle Scar' and I thought it was really great. I wish a video existed of the actual concert, but this is the song:

(Sorry Debi, but Rich might like it... This is the song I was going to send you for him and still haven't...)

Moving on...

I thought I would include a newer song because most of this so far has been the 70's and 80's. Heather has been sharing music lately on her blog and got me listening to Escala. Here is 'Palladio' by them. It is one of my favourite songs.

It is too bad they only seem to have one CD because they are very talented.

I think I will end this with The Eagles. We watched one of their concerts the other night and they have been on my mind lately. I was newly impressed by their harmonies as I am each time I listen to them.

My favourite Eagle is Timothy B Schmit. I have never really listened to his solo stuff, but it is not-surprisingly really good!

He is really good at harmonies, but he is also really good when he once in a while sings lead with The Eagles:

So, there you have it, some songs I enjoy. What are some songs that you enjoy?


  1. Okay CC is pretty darn awesome!! I loved it and glad that you taped it on your phone!!

  2. I Can't Tell YOu Why is a favorite of mine!! I grew up listening to my parent's Eagles albums...awesome song and he is fantastic!

  3. Escala is a fun group. I've caught some of their music on Pandora lately.

    And Styx is good anytime, anywhere!

  4. Fun to see your guy singing! I love it. Great song. And hey, who says we don't like Rush? I love Rush! Even been to a concert! It was... very very LOUD! :)But awesome.

    The song I can't seem to get out of my head lately is that freaking Maroon Five song.. One More Night. If I even think about it right now, it will be in my head the rest of the day!
