I don't know about anyone else, but for me, music is a fluid experience. Granted, there are songs that will always be "favorites." But I also find that my current "favorite," varies as time progresses, mood changes and experience broadens.

My "favorite" song of the moment is a song called "Esteem" by 8 Stops 7. It's a haunting melody which fits a portion of my life word-for-word. Honestly, first time I listened to it, I cried.

So what's your "Song of the Week?" And why? (Remember, if you're going to quote from the song, please recognize the artist and keep it to a few lines!)

I have so many favourite songs it would scare the pants off of a conservative person who follows rules...like 'favourite' represents a penchant for a singular entity...

Today, however, my favourite song is called 'Promise of You' by Edwin McCain.

The promise of you
sleeps in the air
the air that I breathe
and I know that it's true
don't have to convince myself
to believe.


Not only is it incredibly beautiful...in fact it has reached down right inside my soul and won't leave...but it is also very pertinent right now.

Sigh.

Absolutely incredible song.

silky surface of the Severn...
it was a famously difficult

Finally!!!!!!!
Some one who appreciates the musical genuis of Edwin McCain.
I haven't heard that one, but I LOVE his music.  Most of the people I talk to haven't even heard of him, so it's good to find someone who thinks his music his great (sorry, I should say their music).

As for my song of the week?
Oh gosh, there are so many of them...um...maybe...I like Edwin McCain's "Through the Floor" but that's like Chris said, it's an all time favourite.
So my song of the week would have to be...
"It's My Life" by Jon bon Jovi.

"Promise of You" is off his most recent album, "Messenger," which also has several other beautiful songs like the one mentioned above!

Okay, Okay...I'm here...(serenity glares at the sun...)  Sound check..."Testing, Mike One, One Two Three...Test...Test..." sigh...

My offering for the week?
  
               Twisted
              by Joni Mitchell

My analyst told me,
that I was right out of my head,
the way he described it,
he said I'd be better dead, than live...
I didn't listen to his jive...
I knew all along, that he was all wrong,
and I knew that he thought,
I was crazy but I'm not.

My analyst told me,
that I was right out of my head,
he said I'd need treatment,
but I'm not that easily led, he said
I was the type that was most inclined,
when out of his sight to be out of my mind,
and he thought I WAS NUTS,
no more ifs or ands or buts...

They say as a child
that I appeared a little bit wild
with all my crazy ideas,
but I knew what was happening
I knew I was a genius,
what's so strange when you know
that you're a wizard at three?
I knew that this was meant to be.

I heard little children
were supposed to sleep tight,
that's why I got into the vodka one night,
my parents got frantic,
didn't know what to do,
but I saw some crazy scenes before I came to,
now, do you think I was crazy?
I may have been only three,
but I was swingin'!

They all laughed at angry young men.
They all laughed at Edison,
and also at Einstein...
so why should I feel sorry
if they just couldn't understand
the idiomatic logic that went on in my head?
I had a brain.
I was insane.
Oh, they used to laugh at me
when I refused to ride
on those double-decker buses
because there was no driver on the top.

My analyst told me,
that I was right out of my head,
but I said Dear Doctor,
I think that it's you instead,
because I have got a thing
that's unique and new,
to prove that I'll have the
last laugh on you,
'cause instead of one head--
I've got two!
(and ya know two heads are better than one..)

Thank you very much.  See ya at the show.

This is my song of the year:

"One Voice" by Billy Gillman.  If you haven't heard this little boy croon, you are missing a treat.


Yesterday is ash, tomorrow is smoke; only today does the fire burn.

Most people would rather die than think; in fact, they do so.

~Serenity,...Right on with the Joni Mitchell!!! Love it.  This week I'd have to say it's Badfish, by Sublime of course.  . Reason being,...ahhh,...it's a song I've sung,...a cry I've cried. *Peace.

My favorite song of the week is "My Everything" by 98 degrees... it's so sweet! Their new album just came out today, and I'm about to high-tail it over to wal-mart to pick up a copy. (God bless Napster and their illegal MP3's!)

My song of the week, which has maintained a steady palce at the top of my Song of the Week list since early July, is one from the '70s. "It Never Rains in Southern California", by Albert Hammond. It has this amazingly beautiful melody, and the words just about break my heart.

Got on board a west bound 747
Didn't think before deciding what to do.
All that talk of opportunities
TV breaks and movies
Rang true, sure rang true.

Seems it never rains in Southern California
Seems I've often heard that kind of talk before.
It never rains in California
But girl don't they warn ya
It pours, man it pours!


Out of work
I'm out of my head
Out of self respect, I'm out of bread
I'm underloved, I'm underfed
I wanna go home...


Seems it never rains in Southern California
Seems I've often heard that kind of talk before.
It never rains in California
But girl don't they warn ya
It pours, man it pours!


Will you tell the folks back home
I nearly made it
Had offers but don't know
which one to take.
Please don't tell 'em how you found me
don't tell 'em how you found me
Give me a break, give me a break!

Seems it never rains in Southern California
Seems I've often heard that kind of talk before.
It never rains in California
But girl don't they warn ya
It pours, man it pours!

It just does something to me. Reminds me of someone I read about once.

I found this great songwriter! He's written a lot and I think he's really young too so I'm hoping he'll be around for a while. I guess my favorite that he wrote is called "Symphony in D Minor".

Hmm... definetly "Stellar" by Incubus for the moment. I don't know why but the light guitar combined with lyrics that I think are stellar just make this a great one for me, and I loved their last release "Pardon Me."

Hmm, mine would have to be "Do What You Have To Do" by Sarah McLachlan off of the "Mirrorball" CD.  Something about that song, the quiet melody, the painful, soulful words (especially in the live version) never fails to make me teary eyed...so, that's my song for the week..

My all time favorite song will always be "Imagine" by John Lennon. I don't think any explanation is necessary for this one since it speaks for itself...the song of the week is a little trickier. There are so many that I really like and I like all different styles so it's hard to pick just one. Let me get back to you on this whilst I ponder the question a little more.

Well, there are two that usually fit my mood and mode of thinking. One is 'Just to See You Smile' by Tim McGraw: "Just to see you smile, I'd do anything that you wanted me to. When all is said and done, I'd never count the cost, it's worth all that sauce, just to see you smile."

The other one is 'Flowers on the Wall' by The Statler Brothers: "Countin flowers on the wall, that don't bother me at all. Playin solitaire till dawn with a deck of fifty-one. Smokin cigarettes and watching Captain Kangaroo. Now don't tell me I've nothing to do."

There is one other of honorable mention, by Jimmy's Chicken Shack: 'What Do I Do (Right)'. That one is self-explanatory.

everlong, by foo fighters

"Hello
I've waited here for you
Everlong

Tonight
I throw myself into
And out of the red, out of her head she sang

Come down
And waste away with me
Down with me

Slow how
You wanted it to be
I'm over my head, out of her head she sang

And I wonder
When I sing along with you
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again

The only thing I'll ever ask of you
You've got to promise not to stop when I say when
She sang

Breathe out
So I can breathe you in
Hold you in

And now
I know you've always been
Out of your head, out of my head I sang

And I wonder
When I sing along with you
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again

The only thing I'll ever ask of you
You've got to promise not to stop when I say when
She sang

And I wonder
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again

The only thing I'll ever ask of you
You've got to promise not to stop when I say when
She sang"

I downloaded "Promise of you" and "I could not ask for more" on napster...Promise of you has a really cool saxaphone riff in it (at least I think it's a saxaphone...)
I've got 'Misguided Roses', when I first got it I couldn't stop listening to it, it's got some really catchy tunes in there..

Wow - surprised I knew almost all of them! I didn't (and won't, no-no-no-no-no-makethebadmanstop) know the 98 Degrees one - bad mojo Kemosabe... And I don't recognize the one's by Nick Drake, which Trevor listed. But other than that. Wow!!!

(Ali - I think it's:"...it's worth all that's lost, just to see you smile.")

MB20's new one is awesome!!! (though not recommended if you've suffered a recent breakup and have sharp objects nearby...)

Heather - If'n you're interested (Janet Marie told me about it) Rob Thomas (Lead for MB20) was also in another band before, called Tabitha's Secret. I got the album (thanks Janet) ironically called "Don't Play With Matches" - on it, I found a song I recognized, though it was a little different - 3AM.   Was a good album!
