    Mellow songs

    I'm a dinosaur rocker for the most part. Led Zep is my favorite band, but I do like a lot of other music too.

    I'd like to see what you CFers like when it comes to mellow music, or specific songs.

    Some of my favorites:

    Holding Back The Years -- Simply Red http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yG07WSu7Q9w

    I Go Crazy -- Paul Davis version http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oj4jXavFbOc

    Don't Dream It's Over -- Crowded House http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J9gKyRmic20

    Everybody Here Wants You -- Jeff Buckley http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nrMwgTc69y4

    It's crazy how talented John Mayer is. Unfortunately he got overexposed after his first big album and kind of started acting like a d-bag.

    Re: Mellow songs

    Boots of Spanish Leather. The Airborne Toxic Event cover is pretty good. It's in the Youtubes.

    Why is it that Dylan songs sound better when Dylan isn't singing them?

    Springsteen and Melissa Etheridge singing Thunder Road kicks butt.

    Air Supply!

    Donovan - Chase the Wind

    Don't Give Up On Us Baby - David Soul....the 70s were a weird time. Hit up the Bridge on Sirius. All of that soft hit stuff is there

    Re: Mellow songs

    Black Water - The Doobie Brothers (not very slow, but definitely mellow)
    Total Eclipse of the Heart - Bonnie Tyler
    As I Lay Me Down - Sophie B Hawkins
    A Long December - Counting Crows
    Making Love out of Nothing at All - Air Supply
    She Talks to Angels - The Black Crows
    No Woman No Cry - Bob Marley and the Wailers
    By The Rivers of Babylon - The Melodians
    Walking Away - Craig David
    Enjoy the Silence - Depeche Mode
    Lovesong - The Cure
    Twisted - Keith Sweat
    Standing Outside a Broken Phone Booth with Money in my Hand - Primitive Radio Gods (that is one long title, but great song)

    I'm sure I have a ton more, but these are some of my favorites. Plus a ton of other reggae slow songs and Spanish ballads.
