    @ Jayanth

    before i converted to metal, I used to listen to a lot of folk and country music and John Denver used to be one of my favourites. I still dont mind listening to some of his best stuff like country roads, annie's song, sunshine on my shoulders, leaving on a jet plane etc...

    For me, I usually listen to country music when I'm particularly sad with life. Either country music or doom metal.

    ok, here's my 2 cents acc to what i can recall right now:

    aerosmith - dream on
    bryan adams - into the fire
    gnr - sweet child
    kansas - dust in the wind
    led zeppelin - kashmir
    led zeppelin - stairway to heaven
    led zeppelin - ten years gone
    led zeppelin - the rain song
    scorpions - wind of change
    u2 - i still haven't found
    u2 - one
    u2 - stuck in a moment
    u2 - where the streets have no names

    many others... then many hindi songs i've loved over the years.

    i do like country too... after indulging the extreme sophistication of the urban music, u do sometimes find it a refreshing change to switch to simpler things for awhile.

    btw i guess the solo at the begining of aersosmith-angel kicks ass..
    and the one after the first verse in poison-every rose has its thorn
