What are some songs that you just HAVE to sing along with. Ones that "no matter how hard you try", you just can't stop yourself from singing.

A few of mine:

The Devil Went Down To Georgia - Charlie Daniels Band
Betty Davis Eyes - Kim Carnes
Total Eclipse of the Heart - Bonnie Tyler
Welcome to the Jungle - Guns & Roses
One Night in Bangkok - Murry Head
Time After Time - Cyndi Lauper
Rocky Top - No clue who original artist was, been redone 1000 times
Walk Like An Egyptian - Bangles

I guess I'm lucky in the fact that most of those songs aren't played much anymore. whew!


What are some of YOUR songs that you MUST sing along to?

Cover of the Rolling Stone: Dr Hook
Sister Golden Hair: America
American Pie: Don McClean


And for some unknown reason.. Please Come to Boston
Actually I Have to sing along w/every song I know.

We're not fooled, MERTON. We know you sit at home and sing along to every N-Synch song there is....and gaze at your N-Synch posters while singing!

Born to Run, Thunder Road, Born to be Wild, anything by Abba (God help me) and old, old country stuff by Hank Sr., Ernest Tubb, Roy Acuff, the Carter Family and that vintage of artists. Also any country song that mentions drinkin', cheatin', prayin' or dyin' of loneliness. And Dixieland by Steve Earle -- the greatest song ever, except for Summer Wages by Ian Tyson. Come to think of it, if I'm in the car and I know the words, I gotta sing.
