Windfall Woman: I love your numbers 1,18,20 & 25. My current fav singer is Corinne Bailey Rae...her songs, Like A Star, Enchantment and Put Your Records on are creative as is her voice.

Thank for stopping by novelistrogue. You were the first to comment on my first post. I'm new at this and hope I don't become bored with it. BTW I'm intrigued with your 25 thingies.

WFW: I left a comment but somehow erased it, I think.
1. God Bless America, Kate Smith
2. Some Where Over the Rainbow, Linda Lane (she was in the third grade and I was in the fourth - always think of her when I hear the song).
3 - to whatever. Dixie Chicks, I like anything they sing.
I like a bunch of others but these come first. Old Baldy

thanks, you're doing really well too. we're neck in neck there. or not. i don't know, i can't figure that thing out. i never thought i'd do something like that, but it's been fun. i always wanted to be caught between lots of ass like that! (so creative.) i really like your 25 lists. ambitious, yet structured. if you'd like to cross-link, let me know.

i feel like adding a song, too. i'm tempted to add some shite, so here's one i think you might like: Fear by Sarah McLachlan. cheers/saludos.

Gotta have "Stairway to Heaven", "Under the Bridge" & "Bohemian Rapsody". Also "Natural Woman", "What Becomes of the Brokenhearted?" and "Tell It Like It Is". Golly. There's no way to pick 25, but you gave it a heckuva try.
