Songs R Us...

List 10 songs that begin with the letter given to you and explain why you picked them.
Comment and I shall give you a letter.


debg gave me "R."

"Rock & Roll Music" -- Chuck Berry
Any old way you choose it, if you want to dance with me...
(Just edging out "Roll Over Beethoven.")

"Rubber Bullets" -- 10cc
The catchiest song about a prison riot ever.

"Revolution" -- the Beatles
Still one of my favorites. One of the songs to throw on the player when someone sniffs that the fab four were just a pop band.

"Romeo and Juliet" -- Dire Straits
b/w
"River" -- Robert Downey, Jr.
Two takes on lost love, one bitter, one sad, which pretty much captures the experience. Knopfler's guitar work in "Romeo" is wonderful. I like Downey's cover of "River" quite a bit. Who knew he could sing? (And Joni's original is aces.)

"Razor Dance" -- Richard Thompson
Speaking of bitter. "What, my dear Lady Disdain! are you yet living?"

"Roam" -- B-52's
Great dance tune.

"Rainy Day Woman #12 & 35" -- Bob Dylan
Whimsical Dylan. Back in the day, I had such a hard time finding a copy of this song, mostly because I thought the title was "Everybody Must Get Stoned."

"Runnin' Down a Dream" -- Tom Petty
A great air guitar song.

"Radio Free Europe" -- REM
It seemed like this was always playing on the radio in my lab in grad school. I have no idea what they're talking about, and that probably makes it better. I wonder how many people remember the actual Radio Free Europe?
