At Last by Etta James. Except it has been ruined over-played in a car commercial. Same for Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue used in United Airlines ads. They ruin the songs for me.

Another car manufacturer (Volvo) reworked "I'm Feeling Good", hardly equivalent to Nina Simone version.

Woops! I can't edit the post, but Lee Greenwood is "God Bless The USA" I was looking for the version I liked of "God Bless America" and couldn't find it. I forgot to edit the post. I was clicking back and forth on different tabs to find the links!

ETA: The actual title for the song by Jim Nabors is "The Impossible Dream", but I always find it by the line in the song "reach for the unreachable star".

Jim Nabors had a fabulous voice--I was so surprised the first time I heard it.

Me, too, sjerin. I had only ever heard/seen him on "The Andy Griffith Show", then on "Gomer Pyle, USMC", so hearing/seeing him sing for the first time was a jaw-dropping experience.

It's hard to chose just one favorite song, or even 2 or 3, because so often what I listen to depends on the mood I'm in at the time, or what I'm doing, etc. But one that will almost always relax me and give me a very peaceful feeling is "What a Wonderful World", by Louis Armstrong.

I also love Lee Greenwood's "God Bless the USA", almost anything Waylon Jennings sang, Willie Nelson's "Blue Eyes", Kris Kristofferson's "Why Me, Lord", and the list goes on and on and on. . . . . . . . . . .

I usually like very little country music, but there are some. Normally, it mostly rock. When I have time, I like to search for a song I like, listen to it, and then click on the next suggestion on the side. I am always amazed how far down the rabbit hole I can get!

I also love Ray Charles version of America the Beautiful.

Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground (Willie)
I Will Always Love You (but only the Dolly version)
I like just about anything by Freddie Fender

My tastes in music are eclectic but I am partial to old and classic country. When my friends were listening to the Beatles in their early days I was listening to a local country radio station. I had little interest in tween/teeny bopper music. Later as the Beatles evolved I grew to like their music.

My rock years were all the groups of the later sixties, most of which I saw live in San Francisco and around the SF Bay Area, The Jefferson Airplane, Big Brother (with Janice, The Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix etc. along with many of the garage bands that abounded at the time, some of which went on to fame.
