It's so very difficult to mention ONE......there are soooooooooo many.....'Roadhouse Blues' by The Doors, 'Free Bird' by Lynyrd Skynyrd, 'Going to California' by Led Zeppelin, 'Me n My Bobby McGee' by Janis Joplin, 'Baker Street' by Gerry Raferty, 'Like a Rollin Stone' by Bob Dylan, 'Amazing Journey' by The Who, 'Don't Come Around Here No More' by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers are a few that comes to my mind right now.

Enjoy.

"Sultans of Swing" by Dire Straits.

If not for that song, I would have become a drummer instead of guitarist, so it really changed my life.

Top of the World - Shonen Knife (bubble-gum pop at it's finest)

Torn - Edna Swap - darker, more depressing, and raw than Natalie Imbruglia's sanitized cheery version

Vitamin C - Can
Chakra Khan - Various Artists
Giant vs Third Eye Foundation - The Third Eye Foundation
La Rapture - Yann Tiersen
No Dove Covenant - Third Eye Foundation
Third World Lover - Dynamite D./Kid Koala
Totally Confused - The Married Monk
While You Sleep - Shannon Wright/Yann Tiersen

I have a favorite album side: Great Divide and Pussy Wiggle Stomp from Don Ellis Live at the Filmore. Loud, fast, complicated material, last gig of a long tour, pumped up band pushing the edge of everyone's ability, amazing stuff.

I tend to get into an album, listen to it over and over, then move on. Right now, it's Bree Sharp. Some notable songs are "David Duchovny", an over-the-top tribute to the former X-files star (the man, the myth, the monotone), "Cheap and Evil Girl", and "Guttermouth". Great stuff!

Before that it was The 5,6,7,8's, then Jack Johnson, then The White Stripes.

My nightmare? Being locked in a room with John Todd as the DJ. I imagine he might have the same nightmare about me!
