    Everyone has a song, or collection of songs, that speaks to them. Songs that are expertly crafted, have moving, vivid lyrics, sound like no other song, have a personal meaning, and/or can be listened to over and over without becoming tired or stale. I've listed a handful of my own favs....what are some of your favorite songs?

    Black Moon Creeping-The Black Crowes
    That's The Way-Led Zeppelin
    Breathe-Pink Floyd
    Sowing the Seeds of Love-Tears for Fears
    Tones of Home-Blind Melon

    Maybe this list will encourage fellow TBers to check out a new band or new song that has previously been overlooked, leading to new inspiration. :bassist:

    Led Zeppelin - The Lemon Song

    Great drum and bass parts in that song. Very bluesy in some parts. B)
