I recently went to buy a cd for the new player I got for my studio and while ambling down the aisles looking for something new...I found something old. A cd of Kenny Roger's greatest hits. I bought it, brought it home and love every song he sings on it. Like don't fall in love with a dreamer...Everytime two fools collide...etc. Sometimes I think some of the older songs are still the best. What do you think and what are the older songs that really rock you?

I know this is going to sound off. I mean, I wasn't alive during the Vietnam War, and I think this is when that song was written. My favorite song from Kenny Rogers is "Ruby Don't Take Your Love to Town." It's an odd pick, but his other work is just so varied from the tone of this song.

Yes it is.....I think sometimes and it's my own opinion that some of the older singers have something the newer ones don't and that is class. Dolly Parton...even Johnny Cash. I don't listen to country much but spent alot of today listening and watching the country videos...some of them I wouldn't waste my time watching again. I think maybe I am getting old! LOL Do you have any other country singers you like? More the modern ones?

I prefer the songs I grew up with. Mostly, 70's and 80's light rock, but also 'coffeehouse' type music. Funny, though, I can't ever think of music I want to listen to, but when something comes on, I go, oh, yeah, I love this song!!!! About the only two that consistently come to mind are Jimmy Buffet and James Taylor.

I also like light rock and have gotten away from the country in the past years. Too depressing some of them...and too cheesy. I'll have to start listening to it more. I like both jimmy and james...good choices.
