It’s April 1st and you know what that means. No, not April fools day, although I should make the joke that I was only kidding about doing the A to Z Challenge because after doing that test one, this may have been a bad idea. I’m going to change up how I do this. I will still list all the songs on my playlist but I’m only going to write after some of them. They’ll still be alphabetical but I may just go post the pic and go on to the next one. It was taking me an average of 3 days to get a post together and I never would have survived past the first week. I may throw a few things without much text.
* the “genres” listed are my own timeline of music which you’ll find here. If you want to know a quick story of the genre, (Why the hell is he listening to that?) then click the genre link to go back to the timeline page. (My genres are classic, 80’s, Christian, hip hop/rap/90’s, rock/alternative, Virginia song, before spotify and spotify.
**Any pictures of album covers denotes that I owned it at one time in my life.
AC/DC – How can you not have AC/DC on your playlist. Although, technically, it’s a cover band because AC/DC apparently doesn’t allow their songs on Spotify. I did that with a few artists that I really like. They are close, but you can tell the difference. Thunderstruck always makes me think of the White Sox because they use it for their opening at home games. Sadly, I don’t think I’ve ever owned any of their albums. This is probably a mixture of listening in the 80’s and rock.
Adelitas Way – “Invinvible” is one of those songs that is a feel good jam. It pumps you up.
Aerosmith – Now we’re talking, as you can tell by all the songs listed, I’ve liked them for awhile. Steven Tyler’s is annoying as a person but you can’t tell me there’s not at least one song on that list that you don’t like. Go through that list, now which of all those songs are my top 2? You got it? Ready for my answer? The top 2. That’s right, Dream On which was released the year I was born, and 2 years later, Sweet Emotion. I really like all the songs up there, but I love those first 2. I’m not really sure why, but I do. This is another that started in 80’s and continued through my rock stage.
The only actual album I’ve owned of theirs was “Get a Grip” and I listened to it all the time in the mid 90’s. Can’t say much for the cover photo though.
In this section, I’ll figure out my favorites from this post and maybe some other stuff.
- Best Artist – Aerosmith
- Best Song – Invincible
- Most Songs – Aerosmith (15)
- Shortest Song – Gayane: Sabre Dance (2:12)
- Longest Song – Symphony no. 9 (11:09)
- Artists seen in concert – Al Denson, Amy Grant, AVB (3 total)
I know this isn’t as exciting, but it was just way too much work the other way. I was never going to accomplish anything.
