- Easy Lover by Phil Collins and Philip Bailey – love the harmony on this.
- Eleanor Rigby by the Beatles – one of my faves from the Fab Four. My mother sang her own silly words to it.
- Elvira by the Oak Ridge Boys – a great karaoke song, and just a fun song to sing. Everyone’s heard it — Giddyup, a-oom papa oom papa mow mow/heigh-ho Silver, away!
- Even Flow by Pearl Jam – when this first hit the airwaves and I heard it, I couldn’t get enough. All that long hair and flannel sure looks dated now, but Eddie Vedder rocks my world. 😉
- Every Breath You Take by The Police – I call this the Stalker Anthem.
- Everybody Plays the Fool by the Main Ingredient – I go through phases where I will play nothing but 70’s Motown/Philly groups like the O’Jays, the Spinners, the Temptations, the Stylistics, and these guys. Trivia: Actor Cuba Gooding, Jr.’s father, Cuba Gooding, Sr., sings lead on this song.
- Every Picture Tells a Story by Rod Stewart – Love this song. This album made Rod red-hot with Maggie May.
- Evil Woman by Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) – ELO’s fusion of classical strings and rock ‘n’ roll is a winner, in my opinion. Lots of ELO on my iPod.
- Edge of Seventeen by Stevie Nicks – I end up humming or singing harmony with this song. I dig that beat. Stevie has a strange, raspy voice, and this song fits her.
- Easy to Be Hard by Three Dog Night – I’m a kid who grew up on 70’s AM radio, and these guys were always on rotation. Huge fan!
- El Paso by Marty Robbins – What a classic. This is as much a part of my childhood as anything, because my Pa sang his own version.
- Elenore by the Turtles – My favorite by them. Written as an “F-You” to their record company for always wanting another ‘Happy Together’ mega-hit, this song nonetheless climbed the charts, even with lyrics like, “you’re my pride and joy, et cetera.”
Well, I have to stop here and leave it at a dozen, or I will find five or six more. Lots of good “E” songs! Enjoy!
