List of Favorite Songs

Here’s a list of my favorite songs. They come from different styles, but I haven’t included classical or jazz numbers, for the most part. This is the kind of list I’d put on my iPod, if I had one.

2 thoughts on “List of Favorite Songs

  1. Oh. Mah. Gah. “Lovergirl,” “You Spin Me Round,” “All Souls’ Night,” “Paralyzer,” “Saturday Night,” and “Stacey’s Mom,” all on the same list! I think I love you! (So what am I so afraid of?)

    Though the conspicuous lack of Duran Duran, when you’ve got Spandau Ballet and Kajagoogoo here, concerns me. 😉

    Been making my way down the A to Z linky-list and just wanted to stop by to say howdy. So…”Howdy.”

What do you think?
