Aaaaagggghhhh....those first 3 songs...it's like choosing between your children

Sometimes more than others,
we see who and what and where we are,
I'm just a one man band,
With my feet in the sand,
Tonight I just need my guitar

FALSE ECHOES.

A beautiful song about Jimmy's fantatstic father. And since I have the world's SECOND best story teller as a father, who, at 82, is getting closer and closer to THE home port, I chose this one.

Hard to chose between Jamaica Mistaica and School Boy Heart, but I'm going with SBH for all the good lyrics. I always seem to go for the songs that are ballads about Jimmy.

I do love how Jimmy does JM at the live show, but when I'm just listening to favorites, SBH would be on the list.

Happily Ever After. As I go through these it has dawned on me that I love his slow stuff. There are some great lines and sentiments expressed in this song. Might be my favorite Jimmy song.

That's his best line from any of his songs and has been my signature since the day I joined BN.
