so_zanie gave me G. It turned out to be surprisingly tricky, although the clever use of Google did help. And yet I can't help having this terrible feeling I missed something really cool...
Going Home (Wayne Gratz) I've just loved this type of dreamlike piano since a friend and fellow D&D geek introduced me to ''new age" back in the 80's. It probably helps that I can almost play it myself on piano.
Greenman (XTC) Adrian gave me my serious introduction to classic alternative rock. I don't know what else to call this stuff, but it's great! And this is one of the best of the bunch.
General Wolfe (trad) England, Cecil Sharpe House. A bunch of crusty English sitting around, drinking beer and sharing music. Just wow.
Gypsy Boys (David Francey) couldn't decide between this and Green Fields. I like Gypsy Boys better. Scotsman gone Canadian truck driver now singer / songwriter, singing about itinerant American workers in the wake of industrial collapse in the midwest.
Glen Kabul-Trip to Pakistan-The Fourth Floor (old Blind Dogs) Only a small stretch, a tune set that has uillean pipes doing this slinky Asianesque tune that just wants to make you get your Kali on. It’s a beautiful thing
Going Under (Evanescence) Modern emo. Sorry. In fact, the search for this song led me back to the whiny, angsty music path. I didn't realize until recently that I was emo-goth before they had a word for it. I got better... It’s still good for dancing, or vacuuming the house to.
Gypsy (Moody Blues) - I grew up on the Moodies thanks to my dad, I pissed of my first college roommate by playing them (because, you know, they were *old*) - that's why the group. I spent my college life through my twenties as Gypsy, and there's still people who know me only as that. And the song is *Totally* cool, and descriptive of my life then. So it's a million kinds of good.
Ghosts of Cape Horn (Gordon Lightfoot) An early heard creepy sea song. I'm sure it had no effect on me a'tall ;P
Garden Song (John Denver, and/or Kermit the Frog) Mr. Denver is another cherished relic of childhood thanks to my dad. The song itself I learned from the Muppets. Outside of immediate family, Henson and Denver are the only people whose deaths I have mourned to the point of tears. So this song scores 11 points. Thus you get --
Bonus 11th song - Giant (Stan Rogers) there's really nothing more to say. It's Stan Rogers.
