Three Queens by Heather Dale (click)


Without a doubt, the most beautiful song I have ever heard. It moves me to tears every time I listen to it.

"Black is the Color of My True Love's Hair" - various artists. My all time favorite version is by Gaelic Storm (also the most haunting).

"Summer Wine" is a close second. My favorite version is done by The Cores, with Bono doing the male vocal.

Dire Strait's is a really great band with many wonderful songs (for example. sultans of swing), yet they aren't my absolute favorite band. That said, my favorite song of all songs is actually a Dire Strait's made song:

Oh my gawd, how does anyone answer this question? There's so many amazing songs.

BUT this one just about shades it, for me. Especially given the context.

By far their best song, one of my all time favorites as well. This live version is even better than the studio version.

The entirety of Rust in Peace is just about the best musicianship to ever get super high profile attention.

In general, the more recent my song the better the musicianship. Most of my most recent songs this year are instrumentals. No recordings yet, sorry. In terms of lyrics, I haven't written many since the early to mid 1990s, but some of those lyrics are still awesome. None of my hundreds of original songs have ever been professionally recorded yet.

Currently my guitar is still experiencing technical difficulties after it came back from a guitar shop in worse shape than I sent it. Hopefully that will be repaired soon (by a different shop), and hopefully somehow someday someone who is good at recording will do my songs justice with proper recordings on decent equipment. I cannot afford to pay for professional studio time at my current level of income, and unless some miracle happens somehow it does not look like my level of income is going to increase anytime soon.

I hope I can get decent recordings somehow while I can still play. I wish I had some quality recordings of my "best" songs to share with you all. There are two or three dozen videos and mp3 files of some of my older stuff online, but in general I play and sing better now live than anything you will find posted online anywhere. A radio station filmed me recently and put me on their YouTube channel (541RadioCom), but during that filming my guitar was experiencing the technical difficulties I mentioned above, so the songs aren't nearly as good as they could have been even if they still rock.

As for other peoples' music, one of my all time favorite songs by other people is the Beatles song Help! I frequently used to play along to that song a hundred times in a row. That would take about four hours nonstop. Here I am in Feb 2012 playing a cover of it while riding my bicycle inside a middle school gymnasium.

Fleurs du Mal by Sarah Brightman (click)

Completely forgot to include this song in my last post. *smacks forehead* It's beautiful, gave me the chills the first few times I listened to it. :)

BTW, the actual song doesn't start until 1:18, due to the fact that they included an intro.
