    Since we are posting favourites, here is perhaps the greatest love song ever written (big call i know)
    Tim Buckley - Jeff Buckley's father plays a song he wrote "Song to the Siren" - remembering Sirens were woman in greek mythology who sang to sailors in such an angelic and beguiling way that they jumped over board to get to them...It was made famous by the Cocteau Twins, Liz Fraser sang the crap out of this and gave it a slightly different feel...Tim's version is the original and deeper I think.

    The Lyrics:
    Long afloat on shipless oceans
    I did all my best to smile
    'Til your singing eyes and fingers
    Drew me loving to your isle
    And you sang
    Sail to me
    Sail to me
    Let me enfold you
    Here I am
    Here I am
    Waiting to hold you
    Did I dream you dreamed about me?
    Were you here when I was forced out
    Now my foolish boat is leaning
    Broken lovelorn on your rocks
    For you sing, "Touch me not, touch me not, come back tomorrow
    Oh my heart, Oh my heart shies from the sorrow"
    Well I'm…
    Well I'm as puzzled as the newborn child
    I'm as riddled as the tide
    Should I stand amid the breakers?
    Or should I lie with death, my bride?
    Hear me sing, "Swim to me, swim to me, let me enfold you
    Here I am, here I am, waiting to hold you"

    Cocteau Twins version:

    I’m sure you know this is the Cavern club...very famous as the Beatles played here many times before they were famous...and many other English bands who went on to fame...

    this puppy is too old for love songs.
    fortunately, recorded the oscars, and was able to ff that ridiculous duet "shallow", which mysteriously won best original song. Brad and gaga...lol.
    the meat dress, remember.
    that bitch needs help. she cray cray.
    funny how Oscar's was to be 3 hrs, so I missed spike Lee's hissy fit for not winning best picture.

    die hollywood, die already

    I bit of competition would help Hollywood instead of death...perhaps the EU should form a mega movie mill...

    CGI. they are terrified of it.. take the money away from sickwood. they are one of the many arms that propagate twisted ideology.

    Or Moody Blues "Nights in White Satin"; Led Zeppelin "Stairway To Heaven"; Everything by Creedence Clearwater Revival.

    Especially while riding around in this: Finally found a picture of what my first real car looked like. Mine had black interior.

    At least in respect to sf films and shows Vancouver BC is giving Hollywood a bit of a run for it's money.

    Love of my life. 1969RS : cost in 1972 - $1,600. Set the record for most absent days in final semester of high school. Something just made me take the day (days) off and drive the back roads.
    Keeping with the theme of thread, 8-track quadraphonic cassette player and Radio Shack rear deck speakers. Total of 5 plus sub-woofer bass in trunk.

    So many American and British bands here...thought an Australian band which most of Y'all probably haven't heard of EASY BEATS! Stacks of hits and the guitarists went on to write many hits for other acts...They were huge in Australia - This one, "Friday on my mind"

    ^^^ That's my girl fiend's( now wife) little sister and her friend on my 1965 Honda 50 Sport. Bought it used from a local car dealer who sold Corvettes and also had the Rolls Royce franchise. So I say that "I bought my first vehicle from the local Rolls Royce dealer" when I can.
