  • What are your favorite story-telling songs?

    Not the usual verse chorus verse, rinse and repeat... A few of mine:


    A day in the life

    These have a bit more pop structure but still tell a story...

    Rosalita (even tho I'm not a Bruce fan, great song)

    American pie

    Alice's Restaurant is strictly forbidden since thanksgiving has already past

        Examples but not necessarily favourites:

        Love Chronicles - Al "Schoolboy" Stewart featuring J Page on tasteful fills and accents. A tale of English Public Schoolboy morphs into adulthood, assisted by a stream of young women.

        Almost any rock theatre epic from Meatloaf.

        Blood - the Middle East. Not political but the story of love and loss in an Australian family.

          A Boy Named Sue by Johnny Cash is a classic. Take the Money and Run by Steve Miller is a good one too.

            Whiskey in a Jar - Thin Lizzy is definitely a fav

                      Jim Croce had a bunch, but my favorite was always "Don't Mess Around with Jim"

                      Rod Stewart: "Every Picture Tells a Story Don't It"
