2. Hard choice in picking a version ...

they are all good!

Picture is credited to jillan in the Sanders group

How many millennials remember this song, evidence that Sanders has some older supporters.

And a few are even women

3. I love pretty much anything by the Junkies, learned to play this one on guitar.

Played it for my -at that time - 84ish year old mom and got her singing along with the refrain! Sweet sweet memory, and she's 91 now

4. Wonderful, music can be such a unifying and uplifting force ...

wishing you and your Mom many sweet memories

I remember some of those with my daughter and Mom in the hospital with a cassette recorder, that was when they still let small children in for a visit. My daughter has gone from a three year old sitting in bed with her grandmother in the hospital singing to now being doc, happy memories

Thx!

7. Another version was at the Capitol theater in NJ ...

which I almost picked as we have seen the Allman Brothers band there a few times, so I'll just leave this here with another great song.

17. Melissa is a gorgeous name and another great song ...

although one of my all time favorites is Elizabeth Reed, still would prefer Melissa though

This song catches you in the beginning, then brings you in slowly and just builds from there.

Yes we are influenced by the times, I'll PM you my daughter's middle name

33. My name is Melissa and I abhor that song!

I hate it with a passion, the white hot passion of a million burning suns. I was a young woman in the late 70's and you have no idea how many guys tried to woo me by singing "sweet Melissa" at me. It was one of those things that immediately ended any chance the guy might ever have had. My face has always been an open book, so they usually knew it pretty quickly. My niece is named Jessica, another Allman Bros. song, and I tell her to be thankful it is an instrumental piece!

we should have kept them for the covers if nothing else, but damn they are heavy.
