Is asking a true music-lover’s favorite song like asking which has been the favorite breath of air you’ve ever inhaled?

 

  I like far too many songs of various types or genres or categories to name just  one song as my favorite, even when it’s narrowed down in the question for certain specifics. Added to that is how much music has ever been released, combined, it’s got to be at least hundreds of thousands of songs in my lifetime and in the decade or so before my birth alone. I don’t just like music that has come out recently, some of it preceded my time here on Planet Earth. With all the old music that hardly gets airplay, one of the most enjoyable things for me is to randomly or unexpectedly hear an old favorite one that I haven’t heard in a long time.

    I feel that way about the Beatles and some other artists and groups such as Harry Chapin, Pete Seeger, Cat Stevens, and the Eagles. I like too many songs to pick a favorite.

    Yes, it's about like asking that. 

    I'm the same way, getting excited when I stumble upon a temporarily forgotten favorite.  Then I play it and play it and play it again. 

    I like listening to 70's, 80's, 90's music channels on tv. I've rediscovered many songs on there, especially from the 70's.

      I’m listening to this one right now:


    ”Second Time Around” by Shalamar, 1979.



    LYRICS

    The second time around
    The second time around
    I know you come a long way, Baby
    But you don't need that heart of stone, no
    You proved that you could do it, do it, Baby
    You could make it on your own
    But you can't keep runnin' away from love
    'Cause the first one let you down, no, no, no
    And though others try to satisfy you, Baby
    With me true love can still be found
    Love can still be found
    The second time around
    Ooh, the second time is so much better, Baby
    The second time around
    And I'll make it better than the first time
    You know I really love you
    And I paid for my mistakes, yes I did, girl
    The more I try to hide my feelings, Baby
    This old heart gets in the way
    And love won't let me wait
    The second time around
    Girl, with me it's better than the first time
    The second time around
    Let's do it one more time, say it again
    The second time around
    All that I've been through
    I'll do it again just as long as I'm with you
    The second time around
    Ho... the second time
    You can't keep runnin' away from love
    'Cause the first one let you down
    And though others try to satisfy you, Baby
    With me true love can still be found
    The second time around
    I'm gonna keep you mine the second time, Baby
    The second time around
    I'll know what to do, just as long as I'm with you
    The second time around
    Do it one more time, say it again
    The second time around
    I'm gonna keep you mine the second time, Baby
    The second time around
    So in love, so in love
    The second time around
    Oh... ho...
    The second time around
    Oh...
    The second time around
    Ooh... ooh... ooh...
    I'll make it so good to you, Babe
    I make it so good to you
    Not like the first time (Not like the first time)
    Not like the first time (Not like the first time)
    Not like the first time
    Talking 'bout the second time
    Not like the first time (Not like the first time)
    Not like the first time (Not like the first time)
    Not like the first time
    Talking 'bout the second time
    The second time around
    Gonna keep you mine the second time, Baby
    The second time around
    I'll know what to do, just as long as I'm with you
    The second time around
    Do it one more time, say it again
    The second time around

    I can tell you the favorite breath of air I ever inhaled, I'll never forget it.
    Many years ago, after living in L.A. for a long time, I took a trip to the mountains by myself.  When I got out of the car and took that first breath of clean mountain air with a hint of fir trees, wow!  It was memorable.  I sat on that rock and just enjoyed it for a while.
