Hah well I like all that stuff, but anything from about mid 60s through the 70s maybe into the early 80s I've heard so much I don't seek it out now. But I mean that's just a start. While I can't say I'm a fan of what I call "rock country" I do like some old timey country and blue grass even more. Then of course raggae, blues, old jazz, classical.. even I can appreciate the "hits" of opera with you know the 4 tenors. Oh wait there's big band and "crooner" music. The list surely goes on...
But really the thing is I don't seek it out now. I do have a stack of CDs. I never play any of it. Then some old albums.. no turntable. Live? I can't think the of the last time...
I do listen to the radio some. There's a station here that has a "AAA" format. They are out of a university. Because they are a kind of public radio in which they solicit donations it took me awhile to realize the kids don't listen to it's ... It's the "old folks" of a certain era.
Anyway if you look up the term "AAA radio" on Wikipedia you'll see they play kinda anything yet shy away from the well worn track of yore or even today...with exceptions.
While I believe for example I have heard say stairway to heaven on it...
It was probably in comparison to some obscure cover by some other famous band outside the genre for a kind of fun or something like that.
Now I like this station because it's all over the map like that but my wife hates it so there ya go.
Wow, I have so many favorite songs, but:
Pancho and Lefty - Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard, or Rosanne Cash does it well, too.
Wrapped Around Your Finger - The police, great song but I particularly love the video that focuses on their drummer, Stewart Copeland, during the entire song. Wow.
Highwayman - by the Highwaymen
Miracles - The Starship

You didn't have to be a Led Zeppelin fan to be inundated with Stairway to Heaven. You know we landed Americans on the moon, right?
Yeah, I knew you were kidding, but I thought I’d post that interesting photo anyway......many folks probably don’t know that they have been back in the moon‘s orbit to take pictures of the landing sites....
It’s been almost a month since he passed, but I just read it in Road and Track.
He was the greatest driver never to win a world championship. If you were a racing fan in the 50s and 60s, you knew who he was.
In the US, when you get pulled over, the cop might ask “Who do you think you are...

DIVORCE versus MURDER
A nice, calm and respectable lady went into the pharmacy, walked up to the pharmacist; looked straight into his eyes, and said,
"I'd like to buy some cyanide."
The pharmacist asked, "Why in the world do you need cyanide?"
The lady replied, "I need it to poison my...
