What song best describes (or is) you?

If you can sum you up in a song, what would that be? Mine is "I shall be released" by Bob Dylan.

You guys!
So many to choose from! Oh my, which one to pick.... How about this one? I do like standing by my friends when they need me. Besides, this youtube is such a beautiful version of this song and I love listening to Carole King.



"You've Got A Friend"


When you're down in troubles
And you need some love and care
And nothing, nothing is going right
Close your eyes and think of me
And soon i will be there
To brighten up even your darkest night

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you got to do is call
And I'll be there
Yes I will
You've got a friend

If the sky above you
Grows dark and full of clouds
And that old north wind begins to blow
Keep your head together
And call my name out loud
Soon you'll hear me knocking at your door

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there
Ain't it good to know that you've got a friend

When people can be so cold
They'll hurt you and desert you
And take your soul if you let them
Oh, but don't you let them

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there
You've got a friend

No way does this song describe me, but I just adore Carly's magnificent set of chompers.

"Tambourine Man" or "Chimes of Freedom", Bob Dylan. I hear these in my head every day.

I am trying to live up to this song: "Je ne regrette rien (I regret nothing)".


I wonder if anyone here will step up to claim this song: "House of the Rising Sun". Well, maybe not, as such person would not have internet access.

Speaking of "House of the Rising Sun" as one of the favorite songs in my teens, I just recalled the band The Ventures. Anyone here still remembers them?

Oh dear, such a sad song. You were fated to telling only lies? Your love is vengeance?

I Am A Rock (Simon & Garfunkel).

Key words (for me):

"And a rock feels no pain;
And an island never cries."

Ah, that would have to be James McMurtry's Restless

He's got no studio video, only live stuff.

I always wanted to be Pretty Woman (Roy Orbison, gone too soon) but closer to Hard Headed Woman (both songs, by Elvis Presley, also gone too soon, and Cat Stevens).
