Everything Old is New Again

After seeing Robert's challenge over at the Radish to come up with 38 songs for 38 years (his 37th birthday having recently passed), it was just too irresistible to pass up. It was actually quite fun coming up with a good list. There are lots of familiar tunes here, I tended to go with well-known selections but they all sound great. So great, in fact that some of the modern tunes seem to lack the freshness of their predecessors. This is why I love music so much.

Listen to 38 Songs::38 Years, for Robert.

    Thank You Amanda. These lists are the best gifts I have gotten this year!

    I could do them over and over and probably have a different list every time.
