    I'm not necessarily stuck in the 60's or 70's but when it comes to best songs and artists "ever", my starting list for rock and pop could be simplified by saying, "Woodstock". Jazz and classical opens up a whole nother batch of choices.

    I have to go and listen to a lot of these, I bet I can sing them but don’t know the titles

    Rogar you are right, so much incredible talent. I often listen to Beethoven and Mozart just to relax. Last night I listened to Schubert’s symphony number 1.

    So much beautiful music.
