Top 10 Songs Featuring Harmonica

Carlos is not a fan of the harmonica or any song containing it. And I love the harmonica. 

Back in the day, my friend Matt and I each bought $60 harmonicas for the sole purpose of learning how to play - and then woo women.

It was the early 1990's.

I was still dating women then.

I still love the sound of the instrument and any song containing it. Here are my Top 10 Songs Featuring Harmonica. Enjoy. You too, Carlos!

Black Country Woman - Led Zeppelin

From Me to You - The Beatles

I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues - Elton John Featuring Stevie Wonder

Isn't She Lovely - Stevie Wonder

Long May You Run - Neil Young

Piano Man - Billy Joel

Roadhouse Blues - The Doors

Running To Stand Still - U2

What I Like About You - The Romantics


What Would You Say - Dave Matthews Band


I've never been a fan of Bob Dylan or Bruce Springsteen so I couldn't list their songs. I could have listed many more U2, Neil Young or Stevie Wonder songs. What songs are your favorites?

Top 10 Artists: Badfinger (Revisited)

Back here, I posted my Top Ten Favorite Badfinger Songs (in chronological order).

The site Ultimate Classic Rock - one of my daily reads - recently posted its list of Top 10 Badfinger Songs. Not surprising to me, our list shares exactly one song: Meanwhile Back At The Ranch / Should I Smoke. Their lists in general tend to lean toward the more popular songs by a band, rarely anything from deep in the catalog.

Though I do appreciate their love for Rock Lists!

Here is the song that we both agree on...
