Music, Music, Music!!!

Who doesn’t like music? Last night I received my copy of the CD, Kenosha Comes Alive. This is a compilation put together by local musicians who are dedicated to seeing that the Kenosha Unified School District Music Programs stay in tact. All proceeds from the sale of this CD will go toward that purpose. This is a wonderful project and I encourage you to help out by purchasing a CD. Including shipping, it cost me less than $14.00. If you would like to help this worthy cause, click on Kenosha Comes Alive to be linked to Amazon.

While burning the CD onto my iTunes, I noticed that I now have over 960 songs providing me with almost 65 hours of musical bliss. Being a lover of lists, I decided to choose my favorite song from 76 different artists.

Full Disclosure: Selecting a song for Dropkick Murphys, Queen and R.E.M. was very difficult. The Who was next to impossible.

Oh man, I don't think I could ever make a list like this! I have way too many favorites. It would take a lifetime!

I just went down the list in my iTunes, MB. I could have added plenty more. And like I said, some were very difficult to do.
