Hey everyone,
If you had to pick just one ABB song that is your all time favorite, what would that tune be?
For me, no doubt, its Melissa. Why? Who knows really. It simply captivates me. There is this soulfull melody going on, and then Greggs AWESOME voice, and the way he actually portrays this drifter. It makes me wanna get on my bike, and ride. Leavin all this bullsh** behind and simply, BE. Not BE perfect. Not BE good. Not BE what everyone wants you to be. Just BE you, (or me in this case
I could listen to this song several times a day...what do i mean could, i DO!!!
Ok, thats my story, my song, whats yours??
Peace,
carly

First of all, welcome to the site. I think you'll find there are some people here who are passionate and well informed when it comes to the Brothers. I always appreciate what they have to say.

As for your question-Blue Sky. The first time I heard it was 1986. My buddy Digger turned me on to the band. I knew there and then that this was THE band I would be listening to for the rest of my life. Why do I love it? That would be like describing why do you love your boyfriend/girlfriend. It is just a perfect song.

This is one of the hardest decisions that I have ever had to make. But if I had to choose just one, "Mountain Jam".

Dreams is tops for me. There's a good reason their boxed set is named after it.

After that it's (in no particular order) Ain't Wasting Time, Blue Sky, High Falls, and Don't Want You No More to round out the top five. If it's the Allmans, I'm not complaining.

well, I cant pick a favorite cause I love almost all of them, but, I have to say that the most beautiful piece of work created by the ABB would have to be Mountain Jam. I always hated instrumentals, but, my husband opened my eyes to the beauty of the music.

Mountain Jam takes you to another place!

Whats up?
I love all your choices! It gets harder everyday to pick a favorite. Blue Skies is really growing on me. Gregs coming to the Hard Rock in Chicago. I would LOVE to be there, but finances and circumstances won't let me. But hey, thats ok. I have CD's and I can listen any time. If any of you get there...Light up your lighter for me! Its been awhile since I posted. Life has been a bitch. Taxes...grrr. Paperwork...double grrr!!! but big brother needs some more money to finance that war in Iraq I'm guessin. I'm gonna go turn my stereo on. Need some peace...
