Anyone alive out there

  • Anyone alive out there

    Not sure if this group is pushing up daisies or not, but we'll see.

    What 10 songs would you use to introduce a newbie to the legend of the Airplane. These are mine

    10: Ballad of you and me and Pooneil
    9: 3/5 of a mile
    8: She has Funny Cars
    7: Saturday Afternoon (won't you try)
    6: Greasy Heart
    5: Volunteers
    4: White Rabbit
    3: Today
    2: Wooden Ships
    1: Somebody to Love

  • I'd probably just throw the Live At The Fillmore East album at them, and if that doesn't work, they're hopeless. Most of your choices are on it, and the live performance is good and quality is great. If you haven't heard it, I definately suggest it! Man, you post some great threads.

  • Hmmm... I can never sum up the Airplane in 10 songs... That gives each singer only 2.5 songs apiece...

    Here goes, with a newbie in mind:

    She Has Funny Cars
    Blues From an Airplane
    Won't You Try/Saturday Afternoon
    Crown of Creation
    Greasy Heart
    Plastic Fantastic Lover (live at Woodstock)
    Fat Angel
    Wooden Ships
    The Farm
    Feel So Good

    That attempts to capture at least a hint of their varied essence, but I could really do better with 20 songs ;-)

  • 01.Crown of Creation
    02.Upfront Blues
    03.3-5 Of A Mile In 10 Seconds
    04.Go To Her [Version Two]
    05.Let Me In
    06.Greasy Heart
    07.If You Feel
    08.Bringing Me Down
    09.Tobacco Road
    10.The Other Side Of This Life
    11.It's Alright
    12.White Rabbit
    13.Somebody to Love

    No good
