A BOY AND HIS FROG--Okay, I am fessing up. I'm a dirty rotten filker and this Tom Smith song about Jim Henson and Kermit always gets me....

GREEN FIELDS OF FRANCE--Tabor's version is the definitive, but it's still hard to listen to with other good performers.

LILI--Joan Baez--How many women can relate to going back and seeing an old high school friend and finding that some things have changed and some have not? The first time I heard this song was in concert at Portland Zoo. Joan apparently had some kind of trouble onstage and had to leave. The band ended up finishing the song with a nice upbeat African style motif, but I still feel the worry I had over Baez' quick departure from the stage--and my joy that she returned a few minutes later okay!
