One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.

Well, not sure my generation but this is the song that came to mind. Saw them in concert a couple years back and still sound good.

Three Dog Night One



And it goes without saying American Pie!

I don't count my generation as over yet.  So I'm still open to there being something better. Wink

Youngin' - Johnny Cash - "Ring of Fire" 
Thought about John Denver "Rocky Mountain High" here. Parents albums had an influence

Teen - GnR- "Paradise City" 
To many rock bands to narrow it down really. Found Sabath and Judas Priest by the time I was 10

20's - Linkin Park "Crawling" 
Really hard to pick this as it's when my interest and ability to purcahse and explore music grew.

30's (almost over) - Pot Belleez "Dont Hold back"
Again to many to choose from.  MP3 has changed everything.

There is probably better choices if I split it by genre but the above are all in current rotation on the ipod.

Well I've been at this one for 6-7 hours now. I gotta agree with most of what you all posted.

gwm - For what it's worth would be on my list
Steve - redeemed himself, sometimes his favorite from a group makes me go WT?? but they did good songs ... LOL ... But Neil's Ohio is epic, the studio versions guitar work makes you FEEL the national guard marching in to subdue the students
RX - The Beatles, I was weaned on them, the medley is a fav, but Oh, Darling with its guitar that just defines a nagging partner. Then in Rain, "I can show you that when it rains or shines, it's just a state of mind", what a statement & Ringo's drum work, you just gotta LISTEN to it. I Want You (she's so heavy) Crank up your speakers, until you can feel it, put on the headphones, lay on the floor and drift away with the storm, when they cut it mid-bar at the end I guarantee you will skip at least two heartbeats as you come back to earth, I used to do that with the kid, we would both gasp, grab our chest and look at each other to see if we were back. The rooftop concert from Let it Be, after all the fighting when they got together and just played their joy still shined through. The forum wouldn't let me list the rest, Across the Universe, Helter Skelter... Plus what they did on their own. No way to choose 1 fav.

Where did I go when I started looking? Bob Dylan's Tangled up in Blue & It takes a lot to laugh, it takes a train to cry and 100 more from Bob. Then off to the Grateful Dead, Friend of the Devil and a dozen more from them. The Band's The Weight. Steppenwolf's Pusher. Niel Young, where to even start, Down by the River. Lynrd Skynrd, Charlie Daniels, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zep, and on and on ...

But a song we hoped would define our generation ... hoped, fought & died

I've been giving this some thought. I have no idea what generation I'm supposed to be from.

So here's a punt:

We are all living so much longer now.......how can we choose "OUR Generation"....the songs of the fifties and sixties would make sense for someone my age, however, the DEAD and Pink Floyd and Zep continue on, not to mention Abbey Road, and so many more that I can't remember...............I'm sure I'm in the second stage of alzheimers, but  I can remeber lyrics that embarrass my children...................you know?  ....remeberin every word of every song that Dylan, Jimi, the band, etc.    how ccan someone be brain dead, but remember the lyrics of all the songs just   hearin' the melody?

I think that dementia might not be all that bad Wink
