    I am soooo going to show my age!

    Everything by Queen, and I mean everything!
    Michael Buble - all songs
    Eric Clapton - best concert I ever went to and I love all his songs especially Wonderful Tonight
    Def Leppard
    Duran Duran
    Westlife
    Scissor Sisters

    And I love 'You've lost that loving feeling' by the Righteous Brothers for sentimental reasons (it was our wedding song! Carl wanted Eric Clapton but the DJ didn't have it so Carl picked this one instead. He sang it to me with such feeling!)

    With that information, I'm going to peg your age at late fourties or early fifties.:p:D

    I know I'm not a parent, and we did one of these on the Teens section but here:
    When I Speak Your Name--->>IBChoir
    Praise His Name--->>Sheri Easter
    When God Unfolds The Rose--->>Tim Spell This is the guy who originally sang it, but the person I heard sing it best was at youth camp--->>my friend Jaisa.
    Victory--->>IBChoir
    On Time God--->>Talley Trio
    Those are some of my faves that are on youtube, most of my favorite songs are songs I've grown up on like,
    I've Been Changed
    The Blood
    One Day Jesus Will Call My Name
    I Choose To Be A Christian
    What's That I Hear?

    If I had to pin it down to one artist - it would be James Taylor.....
    Although I do like many other artists throughout the decades.

    Yes, I am showing my age too.

    O.A.R. "I Feel Home"
    The words are awesome for my DH and I because he travels a bit for work. We crank it up and sing it at the top of our lungs :eek:

    click to hear song (not a video, just a still shot)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eR3oAPGdl8Y


    "....To me it's so damn easy to see
    That true people are the people at home.
    Well, I've been away but now I'm back today,
    And there aint a place I'd rather go.
    I feel home,
    When I see the faces that remember my own.
    I feel home.....

    ....And that's just what I feel.
    Because home to me is reality,
    And all I need is something real
    My home home to me
    Is the only reality I have left
    That's why I go home...".

    I think we had a "What's on your iPod" thread about 6 months ago.

    The two most listened to CDs on my iPod these days are Taylor Swift's "Fearless" and David Cook's debut album. I'm a sucker for the "singer/songwriter" types and Taylor Swift tells a story with music as well as anybody. David Cook's album is good guitar driven rock music and is very similar to Daughtry's album.
