"Hoyt Axton" is a syn·o·nym for "flexibility" He wrote all of these songs.








Great writer. This one may belong in the remake better than the original thread. John Kay the lead singer learned
to speak english from listening to American Rock n Roll.

The dealer will sell you sweet sweet dreams.

The pusher is a monster. He doesn't care if you live or die.

50 + years later it's still true

And I always think of him as the Dad from Gremlins
I didn't know about that I guess because I didn't know about that TV show.

I haven't lived where there was TV signal available since I lived 7 miles up a more isolated road from Hoyt Axton's isolated place in the mountains of Montana. So I didn't know he'd played a TV show cast role.

It was a movie, not a TV show.

This is my Oldie but Goodie contribution.

I damn near throw my back out busting a move to this groove. I do a jig around the island in the kitchen. Then run and slide down the hallway. Every single time. One of these days I will bust my arse. But I don't care.

This song was the beginning of my interest in New Orleans. I loved the title and lyrics that transported me and millions of others on the train ride of a lifetime.

This is the one that did it for me. So many NOLA legends on stage here.

The backstory and history of that song is pretty interesting (at least to me). Michael Stipe really isn't a fan of it, and where it got its name and how it was almost used at the theme song for one of the biggest sitcoms of all time adds to it.



Oh, and Kate Pierson is phenomenal.

I'm a big REM fan. This is one of my favorite songs from them, and might be my favorite video by them. It's just such a cool, laid back vibe they have going on.


My favorite REM

And here’s mine. One of my running songs. The lyrics are as relevant today as they were in 1971


And another

My favorite from Curtis. It's another powerful social message. A good man grows up in the hood and pushes heroin
to make money.
