Turtle What's YOUR Favorite Tom Paxton Song? (101* d) RE: What's YOUR Favorite Tom Paxton Song? 24 Aug 00


For funny songs, "I don't want a bunny-wunny in my widdle wowboat"—still gets a whole circle of my friends singing and laughing at the same time every time it comes up. And what about "Daddy's Taking Us to the Zoo Tomorrow"?

For serious songs, I think that whole first album of his, which I listened to over and over and over when I was growing up in the 60s, is just stunning.
"What Did you Learn in School Today?"
"The High Sheriff of Hazard"
"Last Thing on My MInd"
"Ramblin' Boy"
"Standing on the Edge of Town"
"Job of Work" "Can't Help But Wonder"
I'd be hard put to choose one,maybe because that whole album is so much of a piece in my mind. How could anyone get so many good songs on *one* album, not to mention on his *first* album?

And I've always loved "Even a Gray Day" and "Leaving London" for wistful love songs.
