List Your Songs
by Tim O'Connell
I'm gonna wimp out this week and do a list. I've got nuthin' that's either not ridiculously long or just plain silly. Open up your music player. List your songs in alphabetical order. No songs that begin with numbers, in italics or other bullshit. Just 26 songs. A-Z. Music, no comedy, no books on tape, no podcasts. No repeating bands so you may have to go with the next one down. I was going to give this a St. Patrick's Day theme and have you try to pick all Irish performers, but then quite a few of us would nothing but a list of U2, The Chieftans and Irish Rover songs. Which reminds me, I have to put my St. Paddy's Day playlist together.
