Tuesday's Top Ten: Mountain Songs

Let's countdown ten songs with "Mountain" in the title this Tuesday. Complied together, it makes a neat little playlist (feel free to throw in Alabama's "Mountain Music" to countrify things up if you wish...)

1. Jane's Addiction-Mountain Song
2. Blitzen Trapper-Wild Mountain Nation
3. Prince-Mountains
4. Fleet Foxes-Blue Ridge Mountains
5. Drive-By Truckers-Lookout Mountain
6. INXS-Kiss The Dirt (Falling Down The Mountain)
7. Midnight Oil-King Of The Mountain
8. Bob Dylan-Thunder On The Mountain
9. Led Zeppelin-Misty Mountain Hop
10. Billy Bragg & Wilco-Remember The Mountain Bed

As a bonus, why not another ten songs..from early seventies rock outfit Mountain. I remember listening to Leslie West, Felix Pappalardi, Corky Laing and Steve Knight on vinyl from my dad's vinyl collection when I was young. "Nantucket Sleighride" is still the bomb. Goodbye....little Robin Marie....don't try following me. Never has a song about whaling touched the heart so much.

Top Ten songs from the band Mountain:
1. Nantucket Sleighride
2. Flowers Of Evil
3. Theme For An Imaginary Western
4. Don't Look Around
5. Tired Angels
6. Travelin' In The Dark
7. Pride & Passion
