Wow did i overdo that post

No, it was interesting.

It's not deep and meaningful but what do you think of Bach's Toccata?

As another offering, I'd add Gentle Maiden. It's a lovely session tune (waltz) and the words are nice. It was used in an adaptation of Hardy's Tess of the d'Urbervilles when the girls were dancing in white dresses on May Morn on the Dorset coast - a place called Dancing Ledge, as it happens. It's mournful and reflective and I played it at my father's funeral. There are plenty of instrumental versions on youtube but I couldn't find a sung one that I particularly liked.

Rather than 5, I guess that the one that brings back childhood/teens memories is "Tom Dooley" by the Kingston Trio - it seemed to be around for years. If the wife is out I'll put "The Rock" soundtrack on (loud).

The only time i was ever really moved by a song was Wild Horses by Rolling Stones, listening to it in the car after a great weekend with friends, i was bawling my eyes out.


The only time I have ever been moved was when the Bailifs came knocking at my mountain cave.
But I agree with you about the song.
