Dunno how true the words are.

Youtube seems to be blocked again in China at the moment.

You want a truly classic song? The Floyd's "Shine on, you crazy diamond"...I got married to the guitar intro of that song.

Music is funny. It somehow defines our personal lives and also the times we live in. Some never loose their point despite how long they've been out. One I believe that follows this is Buffalo Springfield classic, :Something Happening here":

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=vJV44YV69z0&feature=related

  This is especially true in the US. Strangely, one of this band, Neil Young, comes from a village ten minutes down the road from where I live now. This song is now fourty years old.

 Add to that, proof that times never change even after 45 years. Barry McGuire's "eve of Destruction" is just as valid today as when it was written.

  Funny, and sad, how some things never change.

Sniff sniff...the old eyes were misting over at the end of that. Wonderful..
I've seen the Floyd eighteen times and that piece of music never fails to raise the hairs on the back of my neck...inspirational stuff.

... the first one was edited when my grandfather died in an accident and I tried to rescue him. When we drove home from the hospital this song was running on the radio. I was age 11 and had no idea about the lyrics. It took me days to find them and translate with a dictionary.Since that day I loved that song...

So many classics out there.....

This, I think, is a modern one:

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=DFzXacriFJ4

One for the warship boys:

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=mZU7QHCYId8

One of the classic comic songs - I think that Jasper Carrot overcooks it, but I couldn't find Jake Thakeray singing it:
