Driving Music, the List.

Central Figure, Animal Bridge, Jackson Park, Chicago

I've rethought this list idea, here, and rather than posting individual lists, I'm going to do one list, mine and open to suggestions. I think that was what I was really interested in. I'll see where it goes.
Song title, composer if known, and performer. Sometimes a cover is better than the original. Not in any particular order, just there.

1. All Along the Watchtower, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix. Dylan thought this was better than his own.
2. LA Woman, Jim Morrison, The Doors.
3. Henry, John Dawson, New Riders of the Purple Sage. Baer Charlton suggested "Riders", Henry is really a driving song. 8-)
4. Ride of the Valkyries, Richard Wagner. Baer suggested Vogner, what better, though somewhat cliched, because of "Apocalypse Now".
5. Little Wing, Jimi Hendrix. I like his version, Eric Clapton has covered it, but my favorite is an instrumental cover by Stevie Ray Vaughan
6. Caruso, Lucio Dalla, Luciano Pavarotti. I could listen to him sing the phone book.
7. O Sole Mio, Eduardo Di Capua, Luciano Pavarotti.
8. Fire on the Mountain, Toy Caldwell (?), The Marshall Tucker Band.
9. Radar Love, George Kooymans/Barry Hay, Golden Earring.
10. East West, Mike Bloomfield/Nick Gravenites, Paul Butterfield Blues Band. This is a very important piece by a band that influenced the San Francisco sound, including the Grateful Dead, and their "long" versions.

There, that's a start. To be continued ....
