    I could probably spend what time I have left on this Earth learning some of the songs I have on my "would like to learn" list (and not finish). Several of these songs were already on that list. Now several more are! :cool:

    So many songs, so little time.

    I was actually watching this vid yesterday.
    I would add Paranoid Android - Radiohead.

    Can't really disagree with much on that list. I could do without hearing quite a few of those songs ever again, but I can't disagree. :D

    I would've put 'Closer to the Heart' Closer to the top, but I'm a huge nerd and I was born in Toronto so I just may be biased.

    Good list, but nothing too surprising either. I would have to add 'That's Entertainment' by The Jam. Not the most complicated song, but it's one of those songs that transports me right back to my yoof.



    Also I guess you can add any pre electric blues (which I guess he kinda did with Babe I'm Gonna Leave You by Zeppelin).

    I'm kind of surprised that wasn't on the list as he does a separate video about how much he loves Radiohead.

    I've a couple that aren't super involved, just easy to play, and for me, memorable.

    Supertramp's "Give a Little Bit".

    One of the songs that made me want to play guitar hearing it while delivering papers one day---
    Neal Diamond's "Cherry, Cherry".

    Moody Blues, Question. (Although you could argue it's derivative of Pinball Wizard.)



    RIP Ray Thomas

    Does "Bungalow Bill" count?

    (Trick question, of course. The flamenco intro to "Bungalow Bill" was just a key on the Mellotron.)

    Pretty good list. I like this guy. Enthusing without an overbearing smell of cork.
