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.

Éireann go Brách ya beautiful bastards!

good to know i wasn't the only one to wimp out with a list of songs. Crap. Sometimes i just can't think.


I've got a couple of stories that I'm working on, including the beginning of something I think is going to grow up and be a book someday. None of them are ready to leave home yet.

You know what confuses me? Lots of people mention The Who but they never mention their best song, "Teenage Wasteland".
Why is that?


Looks at Veeshir like some sort of...mold experiment.


Hahah, Timmer ... can I call him ol' drippy?


Ahhh, I just like to stir things up.
Considering that was the second song you mentioned, it made me laugh.
After I wrote it I realized I should have closed tags /moron>
