cheater cheater pumpkin eater

a few posts ago, susan at porcini chronicles asked if i would post on this topic...

The Seven Songs I Would Pick If I Could Only Listen To Seven Songs For The Rest Of My Life, Which, Yeah, Like Someone Is Going To Impose That...

and her challenge tormented me. seven? only seven? i listened to all the 5-star-rated tunes on my ipod for a few days. i jotted, i thought. i scribbled out and re-added songs. why would this be so impotant to me? i'm not sure why, but i just couldn't narrow the list.

then, the lovely lainey-paney over at life is just so daily tagged me to post my 3 favorite songs. i suddenly saw a way out of my dilemma. 7 + 3=10, right? ten songs! i didn't have to narrow it down to seven anymore! the challenge seemed surmountable now!

here they are, the 10 songs i consider my favorite, in no particular order. difficult, because they are changeable due to mood, year, insanity... whatever. i'm so noncommittal, aren't i?

  • i don't want to live on the moon by ernie from sesame street
  • the rainbow connection by kermit from the muppets
  • walkin' after midnight by patsy cline
  • mr blue sky by elo
  • you put your arms around me by sinead o'connor
  • long may you run by neil young
  • ob-la-di, ob-la-da by the beatles (sorry j)
  • one by u2
  • the obvious child by paul simon

anyone else that wants to play by my cheater's rules, be my guest. i'd love to see what y'all have to say.

Seven? Ten?? Not a chance....I own thousands of CDs, probably as many LPs...and I'm going to pick TEN songs?! No.

Hey, great way to kill 2 birds with 10 stones! Hai fatto bene as they say 'round these parts. I've never heard the Ernie song. Is this a recent thing or something we might have heard as kids?

Wow, choosing 10 or even 20 of my favorite songs would be a Herculian task because there are so many I love! I think you did a great job on your list..I see quite a few that I recognize and like!

I really like your list! I wholeheartedly agree with the "One," by U2. I love that song.
