My favorite vocals—why...?
I mostly listen to talk radio, but the other day I hit the FM selector in a rare error. The Laconia station was playing a tune with the words "I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans".
I listened with interest and, later, recalled a few of my longtime favorites. (Words, not Titles):
2)The Day They Drove Old Dixie Down (Joan Baez)
3)The Gambler (Kenny Whatzhisname)
4)The Southern Cross (Some Famous Group)
5)Blue Skies ("Iz" Somebody)
6)Eo Mai (Keali'i Reichel)
It's too early in the AM to recall any others when I first thought of these—and I've already committed myself to all the above words.
What is the common denominator among my [presently recalled] favorite vocals?
Evocative of "some other time"?
The year in which these were produced?
The guitar (uke)?
