what's the common denominator in songs that successfully appeal to the emotions?

I'll add another . . . although it was mentioned above Mr. Bojangles has a very warm spot in my heart as the tune describes Issac "Pork Chops" Mason, an old New Orleans street dancer to a tee. I simply loved backing his act on a couple of occassions when the opportunity presented itself. And with all do respect to Mr. Robinson Pork Chops will always be my Mr. Bojangles. Here he is on stage at the Famous Door on Bourbon Street with Sharky's band back in the 50's. Issac Pork Chops Mason

Ya got good taste, Danny C.

BTW -- the Hammnd organ part on the original classic recording of Ray's America was played by none other than the late great, "fifth Beatle" -- Billy Preston -- when he was still yet a kid, no less. Somewhere around the age of 12 or so, and playin' a recording date with Ray Charles...


WOW! Twelve years old and playing a gig with Ray Charles! I can only imagine what must have been going on in that kid's head.

I don't have time to read through this whole post now, but there are several songs that emotionally move me.

One that always brings 'Happy Tears' would be Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's 'Dance Little Jean.'

What a wonderful song, and what a wonderful story.

And yes, even just thinking about it makes my eyes blurry.

Music touches everyone, and everyone can touch music, if they wish.
