My FOURTH 100 Songs


I posted My 100 Songs 11/2016,

SECOND 100 Songs 4/2019,

THIRD 100 Songs 6/2020, and

FOURTH 100 Songs today.

I should have My FIFTH 100 Songs and LAST, sometime in the near future.

Over the years I chipped away at this project, slowly adding, moving around, or even deleting songs from the playlists.

This past week, I spent some extra time and updated all four playlists and created a custom top menu for your convenience. Hopefully no videos will have been blocked or deleted by YouTube as I'm moving to using the original artist's song video from their YouTube Channel.

In getting to this FOURTH 100 playlist, I've created a bit of a shuffle exercise for myself. A pecking order pattern has emerged where ultimately, the five 100 playlists will sequentially move from all-time favorites to favorites. Within each 100 songs, I will not rank them other than the first 10 songs or so of the first playlist are ranked as special special to me. 

Now, what do I do when I have curated 500 favorite songs and then want to add another great song? Well, I have thought that through and decided that a song from the FIFTH playlist will just get deleted and replaced with a song I like a bit more! 

And now, an imaginary scene rolling around in my brain. I'll be playing Meathead.
