post #781 of 906
How can anyone forget Dan Fogelberg's "Same Auld Lang Syne" ..especially during this time of year?

..and the story behind the song:

post #782 of 906
Glad to see that many of my picks have already been listed and mentioned but here are a couple that I thought deserved mention in this thread:

Jackie Evancho "Nella Fantasia"

Alex DeGrassi "Turning:Turning Back"

Evan Rachel Wood "If I Fell" (Beatles cover from the movie 'Across The Universe'). This is one of my go to Blu Rays for auditioning center channels.

Pink Floyd "Learning To Fly".

BTW, if you haven't seen this stunning timelapse video set to "Learning To Fly", it's quite a treat. Unfortunately, due to the popularity of the video, Tom Lowe (who made the video using a Canon 5D Mark II) has since taken down the free full 1080p download and it is now available for sale. Here is a not quite HD sample of the video.

Alison Krauss "When You Say Nothing At All"
Johann Pachelbel "Canon in D Major"
Luciano Pavarotti "Nessun Dorma" by Puccini
Etta James "At Last"
Andy McKee "Rylynn"
Andy McKee "For My Father"
Art Lande "Tenderly"
Joe Satriani "Always With Me, Always With You"
Nat King Cole "When I Fall In Love"
Sergei Rachmaninoff "Rhapsody On A Theme Of Paganini"
Jonatha Brooke "West Point"
Annie Lennox "Waiting In Vain" (Bob Marley cover)
10cc & Godley Creme "I'm Not In Love"
From Les Miserables "Bring Him Home"

To my mind and to my soul the most beautiful song ever ABBA - The Winner Takes It All.

To Her mind - who had taken all - the most lovely song Rihanna - We Found Love ft. Calvin Harris.

Hence, the wildly divergent choices offered up in this thread.

"These Days" by Gregg Allman:

Don't throw your shoulder out of joint with the vigorous back slapping, tiger.

I didn't know he had done a version of that song. First one I had ever heard was a version by one of the many rotating vocalists in the Golden Palominos. I forget her name, but it may have been the only song she sung for them. And I was vaguely aware of Nico's version. The only other thing I knew was that Jackson Browne had written the song. In any event, the AMG guy sure likes Allman's version, so you're not alone there.

Incidentally, it turns out Browne & Nico once had a "thing". Weird. Not a pairing I would have ever imagined anyway. The artsy broodingly teutonic chick and the laid back California dude.


An unusual and quite wonderful rarity on 2002's I'm No Angel, Jackson Browne's "These Days" highlights Gregg Allman's tie to folk music forms. Cast in his usual blues-based forms, Allman takes the sincerity and poetry of the youthful, coming-of-age message to heart, and it works wonders. Previously recorded by Nico, of all people, the song has an ageless quality to it, and when Allman adds his jazz-based organ solo to the arrangement, the final effect is pure magic. Perhaps not the definitive version of the song, it nevertheless remains a unique and emotional reading. http://allmusic.com/song/these-days-t862708

Yeah I knew Gregg wasn't the writter, but I didn't know it was Jackson Brown. Huh. Gregg Allman's version is on his first solo album: "Laid Back". Another favorite of mine from that album is "All My Friends", which I also consider a very beautiful song.
