Oh, MY! I remember so well when this came out and we learned it...guitar through a Leslie...we played it in a club the next night and the people went crazy! Great song, and a great band.

So, so many--boy am I old:
Otis--These Arms of Mine--someone in the recording studio said you could "hear the tears" in the song. Yep. And let's not forget its use in Roadhouse, of course...
Ronettes--Be My Baby--some say the best song ever recorded of that ilk.
Allman Brothers--Stormy Monday on the Live at Fillmore album. Two best back-to-back live solos EVER recorded. I was fortunate enough to play a gig with them at a small college in 1972--us, them, us, them. Stood on the side of the stage and watched Duane travel to places unknown when he played a solo. It was surreal, to say the least.
The Duprees--You Belong to Me--"See the pyramids..." Sinatra recorded this as well as Stafford, of course.
The Crests--Sixteen Candles
Emily Lou Harris--Poncho and Lefty, but pretty much anything she did, obviously including Grievous Angel with Gram Parsons (RIP)
Linda Ronstadt--Anything--best voice in the business, but she likes Bonnie Raitt!
Buddy Holly--Rave On--try to sit still when THAT song is playing--not easy to play WELL live, either.
New Riders of the Purple Sage--"white" album
UB-40 with Chrissie Hynde--Breakfast in Bed--'nuff said.
and finally, not a pop song, but I love it:
Glenn Miller--Moonlight Serenade
OOH RAH / SEMPER FI /

2. Layla - (Original recording)

Planning on having this at my cremation-hopefully not too soon!
Thought of 2 more:
This one takes me back to my freshman year in college . . . and a specific young lady.
Is he kidding? No, he is not.
I've been thinking that there were really no songs that stopped me in my tracks, but...being in isolation and going through my record collection again...well, clearly there are a few.
