An admittedly lame post, but I’d like to share with any readers here my favorite song.
Not sure that’s the greatest version. But I absolutely, positively believe Shannon Hoon was one of the truly great young songwriters of my generation. His band sorta flickered after “No Rain,” then he died of a cocaine overdose in 1995. Man, though, the guy had something going on.
Anyhow, here’s an official list of my top five favorite tuns (top of my head, admittedly).
1. Blind Melon, Change.
2. A Tribe Called Quest, Check The Rhyme.
3. Dr. Dre and Snoop, Deep Cover.
4. Dixie Chicks, Cowboy Take Me Away.
5. Hall & Oates, Rich Girl
No laughing, please …
