Songs that list

Songs that list, what are those? The short answer, a song that has a list in the lyrics. The long answer, well, wait till Thursday and you’ll get an in-depth answer. That’s right, I have a featured article ready to publish! I’m so excited. While I usually tease any featured articles at the end of the playlist posts, this one is special. This article is the first one I’ve written (for AudioPerfecta) in several months. So, this playlist is here to serve as a teaser, an appetizer if you will, for the main course that’s coming later this week.

Ok, but what songs are in this playlist? There’s Johnny Cash’s I’ve Been Everywhere. The Beach Boys sing about California Girls. The Nails sing 88 Lines about 44 Women. Meanwhile, The Barenaked Ladies sing about what they would do with a million bucks. David Byrne sings about Things to Do, and Julie Andrews sings about her favorite things. Lou Bega’s Mambo Number 5, Bob Dylan’s Subterranean Homesick Blues, Hair by The Broadway cast, R.E.M.’s Man on the moon – even I Get a Kick Out of You as performed by Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga. The list of songs that list goes on!

Enjoy this week’s playlist, and make sure to come back this Thursday for more list mania!

I feel like I could write an entire book on this subject. The featured article barely scratches the surface. So…want to sponsor my book writing? I’m not joking. Well – kind of. But not really though.

There’s one more thing I want to ask today. What do you want to see next? Would you like to see a new cover vs original? I want to do something Halloween-related, but that’s really the only parameter I have. Maybe I could do something on This is Halloween? That might be fun. Let me know in the comments if you have any ideas.

See you Thursday. Until then, rock on and rock steady!
