How eclectic?

Well, I love everything from Frank Zappa to Adam Ant.

Some of my favorites:

Amazing Grace performed by the Royal Scots Dragoon Band

Khe Sanh by Cold Chisel

Listen to the Band by The Monkees

Pictures of Matchstick Men by Status Quo

New York Mining Disaster by the Bee Gees

Spicks & Specks by the Bee Gees

Juke Box Hero by Foreigner

Angel of the Morning by Juice Newton

Take it on the run by REO Speedwagon

Son of a Preacher Man by Dusty Springfield

Spirit in the Sky by Norman Greenbaum

Metal Gods by Judas Priest

and many more.

Gene McDaniels became very political during the Vietnam War and wrote the great song, Compared To What.

The president, he got his war.

Folks don't know just what it's for.

Nobody gives us a rhyme or reason,

Have one doubt they call it treason.

We're chicken feathers all, without one nut.

Goddammit: Try to make it real, compared to what?

There is also a great jazz version by Les McCann and Eddie Harris:
