I think it was ODLP who tagged me for this. And maybe somebody else. It was, I think, during the time of the Roman Empire. So I'm slow. 5 songs with the power to knock my socks off. Or sandals, in this case.

Ok, there's just no way to do some all-time list. I'll stick to songs currently speaking to me.

1. "It Tears Me Up," by Percy Sledge: majestic heartbreak.

2. "Black Star," by Gillian Welch: 58 hours since I last slept with you. 59. 60...

3. "I'm Always in Love," by Wilco: pop so sweet your brain will get cavities.

4. "Holdin' on to My Baby's Love," by Bobby Womack: criminally under-appreciated 60's and 70's R&B artist; great guitarist.

5. "I'd Rather Go Blind," by Etta James: Etta James. Enough said.

I totally dig that Black Star Ep.

And Etta James is my momma.

"I'd Rather Go Blind" is one of my faves, too. Great list.
