What are your top 25?


  1. Alphabetically, this is the first song in the entire catalog I own. When the iPod accidentally starts playing the list from the beginning, which happens on occasion, this song gets played, which is why it makes the top 25.

  1. WHAT? you’re not working out to “Let’s get physical” by Olivia Newton John? LOL We have some similar taste. I love that Survivor and John Cafferty and John Denver are there. I’d totally have them on mine.
