**Any pictures of album covers denotes that I owned it at one time in my life.


Eagles – I’ve always liked the Eagles.  When I first signed up for Spotify, they weren’t on there and I had to use a cover band so I was very excited when I saw the big banner announcing they were on.


Earl Wild

Earth Wind and Fire

Eddie Money

Eddie Rabbitt

Edvard Grieg

Electric Light Orchestra

Electric Light Orchestra – This might have been one of those cassette my mom had lying around and I didn’t realize how much I still liked their songs until I started listening to them again.

Elton John


Eminem – I’m not a huge fan of his but I do like a few of his songs.  “Lose Yourself” is one of those pump you up songs I referred to in a previous A to Z Challenge post.  I love to jam “Berzerk” and that’s mainly for the Billy Squire background music.  “The Monster” isn’t too bad and “My Name Is” is mainly because I heard it a lot and it grew on me.  Check out the background music on this.

Emmylou Harris


En Vogue


Eric Carman

Eric Clapton





Evanescence – This is also one of those pump me up songs.

Eve 6

Eve 6 – I mainly like this song because I impress myself with how much of it I can still sing along with it.  See how well you do.
