Lovin’ that music! Hope you are all enjoying the memories that come along with it. Check out the rest of the Alphabet posts!
- Josie by Steely Dan – probably my favorite Steely Dan song.
- Jackie Blue by the Ozark Mountain Daredevils – remember this from 70’s radio? Love it.
- Jessica by the Allman Brothers Band – You can thank guitarist and lead singer Dickey Betts for this one and “Ramblin’ Man.”
- Java Jive by the Ink Spots – great tune from 1940, and the Manhattan Transfer version is great, as well. Bonus – Birdland by the Transfer. Enjoy!
- Jazzman by Carole King – a prolific and successful songwriter for others, she came into her own with her album Tapestry.
- Jackson by Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash – I just want to see June ‘dancin’ on a pony keg.’
- Jambalaya by Hank Williams Sr. – another song we sang around the house growing up. Good times.
- Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho by Jimmie Rodgers – I loved singing this as a kid.
- Jive Talkin’ by the Bee Gees – here they are again.
- The Joker by The Steve Miller Band – Wanna feel old? It came out 40 years ago, in 1973. Ouch!
- Joy To The World by Three Dog Night – another one of those songs that everyone can sing. Love these guys!
- Just the Two of Us by Grover Washington, Jr. and Bill Withers – This tune, cowritten by Grover Washington, Jr, an R&B/jazz saxophonist, and Bill Withers, is a winner.
