A friend had the task assigned to her for an office retreat to list her top ten songs. She sent her picks to a bunch of her friends and invited us to do it. I thought it would be more difficult, but really, it wasn't. Of course, if I start thinking about different genres of music that I like, etc. I get befuddled, but given my middle class white suburban 40-year-old-now upbringing, listing these songs as my top ten isn't too surprising. The reason they were chosen is that they either are fun or have some emotional connection or are just great music and/or great artists, no matter when I hear them I enjoy listening to them, and I think I know all the words to all. I originally had trouble picking #10 so I sent 11, so you have two bonus tracks here (again, I started thinking about diversity, and that got me all befuddled). And if I don't post this now I'll rethink it all and change some, so posting now.
Enjoy, I hope. Music for your weekend.
