Talking About Music ("The Rules")

There's a lot of content on Facebook, but I don't see much being posted about a subject I love and have been thinking a lot about: music.

I've been collecting music on CDs off and on for almost 30 years now, and I've been curating a favorites play list ever since the first cheap and crappy MP3 players came out (30 songs or so! sheer luxury!). It's grown to over 300 songs, with another 50 or so in an Exercise playlist I haven't kept up with for a while. I've also neglected adding favorite songs to the list as I've purchased albums (new and at second-hand stores), so that number is growing.

I'm going to talk about these songs one song at a time. To pick them "fairly", I've put them in a new playlist, and when it's time to find the next song to discuss, I hit shuffle. After doing the write-up, I remove it from the blog playlist, and go to the next song.

I reserve the right to put off talking about a song if I have a special series planned out and it's in it, and there's a few songs that are "Paula and me" songs that will take me a while to get to. I'm also going to take some Saturdays and dedicate them to talking about the newest songs in the playlist. Otherwise, I'm rolling the dice and taking my chances, and so are you.

Now, let's get on with the music.
