Re: Top ten favorite blues songs?

I can't post youtube links from where I'm situated now. Maybe later.

Also, ten is hard.

"One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer," John Lee Hooker
"Wang Dang Doodle," Koko Taylor
"You Gonna Need Somebody on Your Bond," Blind Willie Johnson
"Remington Ride," Freddie King
"Your Love Is Like a Cancer," Son Seals
"Smokestack Lightning," Howlin' Wolf
"If I Had Possession Over Judgment Day," Robert Johnson
"Call It Stormy Monday," T-Bone Walker
"The Thrill Is Gone," B.B. King
"Rollin' Stone," Muddy Waters

By now, "blues" and "blues-rock" have merged in my ears, but in the interest of squeezing ten more in (heh-heh), I'll add ten from artists generally classified as "rock."

"Mystery Train" (live), the Band and Paul Butterfield (from The Last Waltz)
"Rollin' and Tumblin'" (live), Cream
"In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" (live), the Allman Brothers Band
"Hear My Train A-Comin'" (live), Jimi Hendrix
"Crossfire," Stevie Ray Vaughan
"Midnight Rambler," the Rolling Stones
"Morning Dew," Jeff Beck Group
"Somebody," the J. Geils Band
"Spanish Moon," Little Feat
"Why Does Love Got to Be So Sad?," Derek and the Dominos

Speaking of classifications, I love "Lonely Avenue" but I consider that soul or R&B. Which then makes me think of stuff like Louis Jordan's "Choo-Choo Ch-Boogie" or Big Joe Turner's "Shake, Rattle & Roll" or . . .

Ten is hard.
