The Corner of Quirky & Kinky

Ha! Trying to pick favorite songs is a lot like trying to pick a favorite book. Or favorite kid.
In order to tackle this post, I decided I needed to break it down into categories.
So…in no particular order, here are my favorite songs in their handy dandy categories.  And yeah, you’ll probably see a lot of repeated artists. Because that’s how I roll. 
And this is in no way all the categories – I just realized that I needed to dial it back otherwise this post would be Neverfuckingending. Because music.

    For a second I thought you'd forgotten “I Am Stretched On Your Grave” and I was HORRIFIED. But then I saw it was there, so carry on, you big weird sad freak. Carry on.

  2. MissyMonster says:

    All I could think was there will not be a Hall & Oates song on there. I think you've traumatized me with this knowledge of your hate for them.

    However I will have to investigate these songs I do not know especially the Celtic ones. 😀

  3. You have great lists! I love that Secrets has hit almost every one of our lists. LOL

    No Cloud Cult??? 😉

    “Pop! Goes the World” by Men Without Hats is one of my happy songs. 😀
