When I pick up my guitar my fingers form themselves around the same old familiar chords and runs as I tend to return to a short list of songs time after time. I've tried over the last few years to remember new songs but I forget them after a couple of plays. Drink I guess. Age. Befuddlement. Whatever.
So what would you hear, listening in at my kitchen door?
It's Too Late - Carole King / Wichita Lineman - Glen Campbell / Walk on By - Dionne Warwick /
Me & the Devil / Hoochie Coochie Man / I'm a Man
Honky Tonk Women / Country Honk / Brown Sugar / Love in Vain / Satisfaction
Proud Mary - Various / I Get A Kick out of You - Frank Sinatra / Return to Sender - Elvis Presley / Run to Him - Bobby Vee
Wake me up before you Go-go - Wham / Wanted Dead or Alive - Bon Jovi / Say Hello, Wave Goodbye - Soft Cell
As a special treat I recorded especially for this article - for you - this video of four of these songs.
