You know, I have a lot of songs that I really enjoy that the list would simply be far too long...

However, there is one song that's something pretty special to me, much like how "Sentimental Journey" is to Potter; that song is "Accidentally in Love" by Counting Crows... I already liked it when I first heard it on the soundtrack for Shrek 2, not to mention Counting Crows is a pretty good group, but the song actually later meant something to me, because that actually happened, I was indeed accidentally in love with someone I wasn't really supposed to fall in love with (because she was already taken).

On that note, there's also a song with her name in it that's pretty special to me as well, lol... I won't reveal the name or the song, but I will say it's an OLD Hall and Oates song. :mrgreen:

Hall & Oates are cool dudes! I dig their stuff very much. They've seem to only get more popular over the years, and built up a huge sort of cult following.

Counting Crows are awesome too, very chill laid back tunes. I'm glad you mentioned them, that just made me remember a song by them a haven't thought of in a long time called "A Long December" One of my favorites.

Lol, well the 80s is my favorite period for music, so I hear Hall & Oates quite a bit, though I do dig 'em, and you're right, they do seem to be one of those groups who keep growing in popularity (and cult followings) with the passing decades... kind of like Stevie Nicks, lol. And MrsTuttle, lucky you! I know John Oates came to my town recently, though I missed seeing him. :|

And getting back to Counting Crows, exactly, in a world where the current trends in music are rap, hip-hop, and crazy Lady Gaga racket, I love their music for how laid back it is... I've recently gotten hooked on their "Big Yellow Taxi" (or as I think it should be titled, "The Day Paradise Put Up a Parking Lot").

Ahh i love that song! But yer, it's a silly name for it lol

And i don't really want to admit it, but i have never heard of Hall & Oates until like last month when i was asked to the concert/picnic thing.. But i looked on itunes and found out that i knew alot of there songs, just didn't know they sang it (if that makes sense)..

What a wonderful tune, I get goosebumps hearing Slash wail on those solos. Brings back great memories from the midwest in summer, listening to Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, and Guns N' Roses heavily.

George rocks! :)

I love The Beatles and all the solo stuff I've heard, just total legends, John especially. George Harrison was the one who struck a chord with me for some reason. Maybe being "the quiet Beatle" I identified with him. I just always loved his attitude and everything he was involved with from the early days with The Beatles, his solo work and The Traveling Wilburys. Just one of the chillest, coolest dudes.

Even as a kid I took a liking to George. The memories are hazy, but I've been told that when I was a kid, I was rockin if I heard "I Got My Mind Set On You" on the radio. :)
