100 Favorite Songs: 31-35

Well this is an interesting bunch.

31. "The Look of Love" by Dusty Springfield (1967)

More Burt Bacharach, but this time from the soundtrack for the spooftastic Casino Royale. Mostly I just love the bridge. At least I think it's the bridge, but since there's no discernible chorus, it's hard to tell. It's the part that's starts with "I can hardly wait to hold you..."

I may or may not start to move like Dusty Springfield whenever I sing.

32. "Old Love" by Eric Clapton and Robert Cray (1989)

2 ways to get me to listen to blues: an interesting chord progression or gorgeous instrumental solos. Luckily this has both--mostly in the form of gorgeous guitar solos from both Eric and Robert in this version.

I love Sting so much.

33. "Sunday Morning" by Maroon 5 (2004)

Their one song that doesn't get obnoxious after about 5 times through. Plus I can never resist some good blue-eyed soul. (Skip to about 1:30)

It's just so catchy.

34. “More Than a Feeling” by Boston (1976)

I love pretty much every song by Boston since they all sound like slightly different versions of the same awesome road trip song, but "More Than a Feeling" is their finest. Not only was this the least obnoxious ring tone I ever had, but it contains some great Brad Delp's voice blending into a wailing guitar moments.


35. "Photograph" by Def Leppard (1983)

Blah blah blah, Def Leppard is pretty lame and WTF was with all those Union Jacks. Whatever. This is pop rock at its finest.

Passion killer? Cage? Marilyn Monroe? This video's creepy.

  1. More Burt yay!
    "The Look of love" is a flawless song, I don't think I've ever heard a bad version of it.
