My Alphabet of Songs: C

I’ve enjoyed listing some of my favorites from my iPod.  These are not The Top Ten (or Eleven) — just a few I’ve selected to share with comments.  I love my iPod. I love having all of my music around for me to choose what I want.  Shall we proceed?

1. C’est La Vie by Robbie Neville – I liked this song from the first listen.  I thought we’d hear more from Robbie, but alas, no.  C’est la vie. 😉
2. California Dreamin’ by The Mamas & The Papas – love the harmonies and arrangements.  Cass died too young.
3. Canary in a Coal Mine by The Police – ‘First to fall over when the atmosphere is less than perfect,’ This is a bouncy, fun song, and I’ve been known to leave it on repeat.
4. Cheeseburger in Paradise by Jimmy Buffett — fun song, makes me think of summer.  And retiring in Key West.
5. Coconut by Nilsson – everybody knows this song.  You can teach it to your kids, and it’s fun to sing.
6. Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd – not my favorite Floyd song (that comes later in the alphabet) but still nice imagery.  This version gave me goosebumps.
7. Could it Be I’m Falling in Love by the Spinners – all of that Motown music and Philly Soul that was on AM radio when I was growing up still gets me singing along and chair dancing.
8. Crazy on You by Heart – in my opinion, few voices are as pure and powerful as Ann Wilson’s.  This is probably my favorite of Heart’s songs.  And yes, Nancy CAN play guitar!
9. Crazy Train by Ozzy Osbourne – the first single off his solo debut album, The Blizzard of Ozz,  the song is instantly recognizable by the opening riff (courtesy of Randy Rhoads) and that unmistakable Ozzy voice.  Love it.
10. Creeque Alley by The Mamas & The Papas – For a long time, I didn’t know it was pronounced “Creaky” — but i love the autobiographical nature of this song.
11. Crossfire by Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble – SRV was lost to the world too soon.  I consider him to be one of the world’s finest guitarists.  RIP, SRV.
12. Cupid by Sam Cooke – Oh, Sam, your voice was as smooth as silk.  I can listen all day long.
