My top 10 changes every day, but the song "Watching The Wheels" by John Lennon is my early retirement anthem. Love the line "No longer riding on the merry-go-round - I just had to let it go"

I listened to this song on the day I retired. Definately related to the merry-go-round lyric. Here's another good one John gave us.

Statesboro Blues is the tune I left with on my last day of work. Freedom on that final drive away!

Freebird, was the first song on the radio I remember hearing, driving to our honeymoon suite. It just made me cry like a baby at age 30, with thoughts that life as I knew it would never be the same. That was 32 years ago, and 32 years of bliss with my bride.

I really like a lot of the music posted here. Dylan, Joni Michell, Annie Lennox, all the stuff HFWR posts, lots of Purron's too. Brings me back. But Alvin Lee - and Ten Years After - just stir up some very nice memories, for which I am always grateful.

It's funny, because DW sees me smile when I am reading posts or posting and she thinks it is some weird thing when usually it is just a song and a good memory...

Here are 10 that I really have enjoyed over the years, limit one song per performer:

Cream Sunshine of your Love
Santana Black Magic woman
Jethro Tull Aqualung
Led Zeppelin Stairway to Heaven
Steppenwolf Born to Be Wild
Eurythmics Sweet Dreams
Guns and Roses Sweet Child of Mine
Ten Years After I Want to Change The World
Don McLean American Pie
Lynyrd Skynyrd Freebird
Janis Joplin Me and Bobby McGee

I know, that's 11. One spanish song, not rock & roll, and few will recognize but just as good

Mocedades Eres Tu

What amazing music in this thread.
