    The best version of Stairway to heaven I've ever herared was played on a banjo (guitar effect) and in the style of a hillbilly. I guess it just stood out as "different" - that's Bill Bailey for you though.

    Eric Clapton unplugged- Would you know me in Heaven

    Ahh YES!, thanks for that one SOcRatEs, such a sad touching song about his son.

    Paranoid Guy and Masque: No probs guys, a little debate just added some spice.

    My daughter was only 3, maybe 4 years old when this song came out, Butterfly Kisses. I do not know the writers name, he is sort of a wannabe song writer with this one hit wonder. He wrote it for his daughter.
    That ones a little too mushy for you guys..but there might be a dad or two amongst you who might relate.

    She Talks To Angels-Black Crows
    Road Trippin'- Red Hot Chilli Peppers

    Great list gents.

    An odd one to add to the list
    The "Lords prayer" to the tune of "House of the rising sun".
    I heard it once sung acapella by a young girl (Mill Rat) on ASU/Mill ave. Tempe.

    I'm probably wrong here, but is it not Tears in Heaven?
    And Kirock, that Butterfly Kisses thing rings a bell, I'll ask my dad :D

    More Cowbell

    Gentlemen,

    We need more songs with more cowbell!
    Did any1 see the SNL skit with Cristopher Walken?:http://www.evtv1.com/player.aspx?itemnum=780
    In Toronto some record producers have put together a whole CD with only songs that feature the cowbell. All this started from the above video.

    It seems to me no-one in this thread has mentioned the most obviously uplifting,and heavenly songs in existence.I refer,of course,to every track on the album "Blue Horse" by The Be Good Tanyas.Canada`s finest product.

    Let the beat hit'em - Lisa & Lisa Cult Jam
    Nearly anything by Sasha, but there are exceptions. It's all special to me. I was part of the scene back in the 90's.
    For less chemical I'd have to say Broadsword(bring me my) by Jethro Tull.
    Hard times of old England - Steeleye Span, I love this. I could go on, and on. Dock of a bay, Sunshine on a rainy day, Bring it back by Moloko. I guess music has a powerful effect on me. Sometimes stuff by KrissDamage (German Gabber) is uplifting for me.

    Well I can't find a link to a video of the song, but here's a link to the lyrics of Butterfly Kisses by Bob Carlisle. BOB

    If you have a daughter, it's a very touching song.

    Cheers.

    Bush - Glycerine

    Glycerine is a chemical used in perfumes and medicines and also to preserve food. The title comes from the explosive applications of glycerine to stabilize nitro: in an interview Rossdale said the song was about how love was like a bomb.

    Download it or something, legally of course *cough*.
    I tried to find a stream but none worked.

    See if anyone can beat this for obscurity, one of my all time favourite songs is Waiting Room by Fugazi.
    If anyone can come up with the name of the album that song is from (without using a search engine of any sort) i will be seriously impressed,

    I believe the album was called 13 songs. It was the first track. ;)

    howard_hopkinso Newcomer, in training Posts: 25,948   +19

    Because I have the album. Originally it was on the self titled Fugazi EP.

    I also have the Steady diet of nothing album too.
