Top Five On Friday - 4/16/10

It's the Top Five!

Top 5 songs you love to hear live

1)  "La Chanson de Mardis Gras" by BeauSoleil.  This song is always best when done live, with as much intensity as possible.

2)  "Dream In Blue" by Los Lobos.  I know I'm in for a good time as soon as I hear that cool drum beat and that blistering guitar lick.

3)  "Hallelujah" by Jeff Buckley.  I don't think I've ever heard him do this song the same way twice.

4)  "Tullochgorum" by Natalie MacMaster.  Natalie usually plays this in her live shows, and it's always the highlight of the night.

5)  "Red House" by Jimi Hendrix.  Just like Jeff Buckley, Jimi never played this song the same way twice.  The version on the Isle of Wight concert is the best, I think.
