Of course, with the passing of Malcolm Young this weekend, we received a ton of AC/DC songs. RIP Malcolm.

4 Millionth Song Choice
AC/DC - For Those About to Rock (We Salute You)
Tell us why this song should be THE ONE.
With the passing of Malcolm young this close to your four millionth it is only fitting. They have always been a staple in WBLM's history. It a song the represents the past and future of rock. This song is special to me it introduced my daughters to rock. I used to listen to them to get ready of a game or an event. It got my blood pumping with that something extra like no other could. Now My daughter hears this song and many others of AC/DC at games and it fires them up.

4 Millionth Song Choice
Touch of Grey by the Grateful Dead
Tell us why this song should be THE ONE.
Touch of Grey is an amazing song because it brings me back to a happy time. Also, it was an introduction to their music. This song, by the Dead, makes me feel like everything will work out even if it doesn’t feel like it will. When this song is played on the radio or on my Alexa, it is turned up so loud that my kids tell me to turn it down. It’s a total role reversal! And it is just the way it should be.

 

 

We knew we would get some Elton songs coming in with his show in Portland this weekend.

A classic LIVE performance would be great idea!

4 Millionth Song Choice
Stevie Ray Vaughan's 1984 live at Carnegie Hall recording of Voodoo Child
Tell us why this song should be THE ONE.
When I heard about this this morning, I thought immediately it needs to be a live recording of something truly classic, but something we don't hear all the time: something special. My mom raised me on pretty much everything between Beethoven and Led Zeppelin. We had a postage-stamp black and white TV that never came in well, and a really sweet JVC stereo system with big box speakers. Priorities.
In June of '91 we moved from Anchorage, Alaska (where I was born) to East Machias, Maine (my mom grew up in Starboard a few miles down the road). The JVC came with us, and it was a big part of what got me through the culture shock. The turn table didn't work anymore, but the tape decks and the tuner did, and one cassette in particular: a copy of SRV's In Step.
Since then Stevie Ray Vaughan has been my go to artist when I need a lift, when I'm sad, when I'm angry, or when I just want to roll down the windows and jam out. For me, the bar of rock n' roll guitar is set by three legends: Jimmy Page, Jimi Hendrix, and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Stevie is my favorite. But the other two are damn close. If there was a recording that somehow combined the three, I would nominate that, but I can only get two. Therefore, I think your 4 millionth song should be SRV playing Voodoo Child live at Carnegie Hall in 1984. He brought Hendrix back to life as no one else ever has, before or since. But the performance was still unmistakably Stevie; he had Hendrix in his veins, but he was still himself. For those few minutes, they were one in the music.
