All Mixed Up by The Cars.
Oh yeah! Haven’t played that one for a while. Thanks, Lisa! You just gave me a GREAT idea!
This is impossible for me but I’ll say Kashmir.
Great choice, Bill. Your pick may change tomorrow. Mine (Andy’s) would probably change hourly, knowing me. That first chord of “The Rover” off the same record. That would be a window-rattler.
Anything, well actually Everything, by SRV! 🥰🤩
Just run through the catalog…. That sound system can handle it. (The neighborhood will thank us later). 🙂
Riviera Paradise, SRV.
There you go! ABSOLUTELY LOVE your pick, Don.
If You Want Blood (You’ve Got It) – Heavy Blues Riff Rock with Bon at his best!
Absolutely delicious. The best medicine for a neighborhood WAITING for something to happen. 🙂
Eruption EVH…watch the blowback!
Blowback, indeed. That’s the UNDERSTATEMENT of the year. LOL. Might as well let it play into “You Really Got Me.”
The Hellion/Electric Eye by Judas Priest
THAT’S what we’re talking about! “I’m made of metal, My circuits gleam!!”
Helter Skelter is my choice
Tom Sawyer by Rush! The neighborhood would be blown away!
You would be the Pope of THAT neighborhood… those changes would be permanent.
Singing “Sky Pilot”
Probably Ten years gone. The mighty Zep. Some of Robert’s most soulful singing, and my favorite solo by Jimmy…
Such an underrated song. Musically, one of the band’s VERY VERY best. It’s got it all.
I would love to hear Little Dreamer by Van Halen!
How good would THAT be? You’d be doing the neighborhood a favor! LOL.
