A few weeks ago, Miss Luci asked me what my favorite song was. She was gonna play it for me the following weekend at Junkyard Blues. Oh my, oh my! That was a very, very hard question to answer. I couldn’t even narrow it down to a favorite artist. Finally, I said, I really like Zydeco but I don’t know much about the Zydeco artists.
Miss Luci’s question got me started putting together a Playlist of my favorite music but as I added more and more to my playlist, the more I realized that there are very few types of music that I don’t like; that is, if the music is performed well.
The playlist expanded rapidly to over 20 songs, at which point I decided to pick only one song per artist. And the list has continued to grow and is headed to 50 or maybe more. The music spans many genres including Blues, Zydeco, Jazz, Asian, Classic Rock, Alt Rock, New Wave, Classical, Country & Western, Folk, Opera, Pop and prolly other categories that have slipped my mind, no Hip Hop/Rap tho. And the songs date all the way back to the 1920s with George Gershwin, to today with Taylor Swift.
Anyway, I call my Playlist, My Totally Eclectic Music List and you can check it out at the very bottom of this blog page. BTW, the order the list is in doesn’t represent my ratings. No, I still can’t tell you what my favorite song is.
