Re: What is your favorite song.
Brown Eyed Girl - Van Morrison
When that song came out in '67 I was playing drums in a rock band and that song just blew me away. I was in a local burger joint once that summer and played the song 12 straight times on the juke box, driving one of the waitresses crazy. My oldest daughter is my "brown-eyed girl" and we danced to that song at her wedding.
My favorite song is probably one I wrote last year called "Hard Times". My favorite song written by someone else is "Never Leave Harlan Alive" by Darrell Scott.
"If Einstein hadn't discovered the theory of relativity someone else would have because its a basic science truth. Same for Watson-Crick and DNA. But if Beethoven hadn't written "Moonlight Sonata", no one else would have. If Van Gogh hadn't painted Starry Night, no one else would have."
I don't want to play songs, I want to create songs.
