I'll shamelessly plug "My Life Revolves Around Pee".

Someday we'll win this thing...

Re: your countries national song?day

Four Strong Winds is one of my gig night songs. Ian Tyson wrote that song in the early 60's, and recorded it with his now former wife Sylvia. Neil Young's version is not my favourite, although it is probably the most widely listened to version. Simple song to perform, but, its simplicity allows for personal interpretation of it. It's my wife's favourite song from my playlist.

Hank's prosepctive gutiar player said: "Mr Williams, I'm not sure I can play for you, the onliest chords I know are C D & G"
Hank repleis, after a short pause: "Well, what else is there?"

Re: your countries national song?day

the song i relate to mostly is; "I think I'll drink a beer then my world revolves around pee" it's an age thing (so they tell me).

my favourite Welsh song would be "Sospan Fach" which means "small saucepan" but for some reason is the anthem of my home town Llanelli, in South Wales UK

There are two "L's" in Phill

+100  Thanks J3, I loved this song when I heard it the first time I saw the Woodstock movie at 13.

Re: your countries national song?day

Seriously though, do we have a "best song in America" thing?  If so, I've never heard of it.  If not, then it comes down to individual opinions.

From time to time I hear radio stations have "all time greatest song" countdowns (usually around New Year's Eve and I'm not sure how it's determined) and Stairway to Heaven is usually #1 followed by A Day in the Life.  Not saying I agree, it's just what they say.
