Uriah Heep




Lady In Black - Studio Version

This is one of my favorite Classic Rock bands. This clip is from their album Salisbury which has my favorite music track of all time also titled Salisbury, a moving piece with many, many changes in tempo, rhythm and flavor.

This particular piece is rich with beautiful visualizations, not to mention the song itself...



Pink Floyd



Echoes - Studio Version
Echoes - Live Version

Recorded in 1973, this was a groundbreaking album. In fact, most of what Pink Floyd does is in some way groundbreaking for that matter.

The following are the lyrics of the song. Put your headphones on - kick back and read the words as they come up - Nice...

Songwriters: GARY, PAUL / NICOL, STEVE

Overhead the albatross hangs motionless upon the air

And deep beneath the rolling waves in labyrinths of coral caves

The echo of a distant tide
Comes willowing across the sand

And everything is green and submarine
And no one showed us to the land
And no one knows the wheres or whys
But something stirs and
Something tries
And starts to climb towards the light
Strangers passing in the street
By chance two separate glances meet
And I am you and what I see is me
And do I take you by the hand
And lead you through the land
And help me understand the best I can
And no one calls us to move on
And no one forces down our eyes
And no one speaks
And no one tries
And no one flies around the sun
Cloudless every day you fall
Upon my waking eyes
Inviting and inciting me to rise
And through the window in the wall
Comes streamin in on sunlight wings
A million bright ambassadors of morning
And no one sings me lullabies
And no one makes me close my eyes
So I throw the windows wide
And call to you across the sky.


Elton John




Funeral for a Friend

Love Lies Bleeding

What can I say about this? Magnificent comes to mind...

I was lucky enough to see Elton John in concert. I sat just behind him and to his left. I was able to watch him play. Truly one of the highlights of my concert going experiences...


The Eagles




Love Will Keep Us Alive

Live Version

Not often do you have the talent that the Eagles have, (or had?) I am not sure if they will ever tour again or make another album.

But they have left us with so much to treasure. This is one of my favorites, I love Timothy B. Schmit's voice, he is angelic...







Live Version

Styx has always been one of the Classic Rock bands that bring me back to my youth, I tenderly love this song.

This is an exceptionally intimate live version...



Josh Groban




Live Version

Personally, I think Josh Groban has one of those voices that come around once in a generation. His vocalizations, no matter what the piece is astounding.

I once watched a TV show where Josh was singing someones song, (sorry, I can't remember who it was) you could tell by the look on the writer's face that he was ecstatic Josh was actually singing his song, it almost brought him to tears. Me too...
