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

                        American pie




                        I was going to say "American Pie" even though that might be a bit cliche'

                        And indeed, "A Day In The Life" is also a good choice.



                        I was going to add 'The Edmund Fitzgerald" even though that's also a bit cliche'



                        But speaking of Bruce, that reminds me of one of my favorite story-telling songs -



                        "The River" I think this is one of the best story telling songs, because I think most of us can relate to it in one way or another.

                        And I can also relate to Bob Seger's Night Moves to such a strong extent that I often find it to be an emotional process for me from time to time. I mean, I can live this song, because I did. But it was a '65 Chevy. And the characters for me are more like a composite than exactly one individual.

                        but I can remember one girlfriend who was so beautiful and sexy in a halter top and hip hugger jeans that you'd think the designers came up with them for her. That memory has on occasion brought a tear to my eye (from '74)

                        Well Dick, it's got a good beat, and I could dance to it, so I give it a 10!
                        I have opinions of my own,strong opinions but I don't always agree with them.
