Alphabet of Songs



1. Reply to this post and I'll assign you a letter.
2. List (and upload, if you feel like it) 5 songs that start with that letter.
3. Post them to your journal with these instructions.

Meme from huskyteer and she gave me the letter B.

The only song on my top 100 beginning with B is Be My Baby, The Ronettes. This is Phil Spector at his best; listening to it is like being in the bath.
I could have gone for the obvious Bar-bar-bar from the Beach Boys but I don’t like it much so I’ve picked the beautiful Breakaway, full of lovely harmonies.
I must have Dylan: Blowin’ in the Wind? No. Boots of Spanish Leather. This was a great favourite of cybersofa’s. I think it reminded him of his teenage folkie days listening to Paul Simon playing in folk clubs.
Brown Shoes Don’t Make It, Frank Zappa. Could have been Billy The Mountain, but I like the riff.
Bring It On Home to Me, The Animals. Plenty of versions of this song but I like the rawness of this one.

I started this quite unable to think of any songs beginning with B. Suddenly I had a list of about forty songs to choose from and really, the ones I’ve left out are as good as those that stayed in.
