Themed Music Lists

Anybody who has ventured into these pages will know that I love music and also making lists (yes I know it's really sad).

When I decided to venture into the world of portable MP3 Players I decided to put together some themed lists to make a number of playlists. Using the excellent Napster site (now 100% legal as I pay a monthly subscription) I have started this process and will be adding to these as I go along.

The Internet has made it possible to track down music and information. To make my playlist the songs must have some special meaning or be tracks that I really enjoy.

Take for instance the playlist entitled "Days of the Week." Now I know there are hundreds of tracks for both Saturday and Sunday. To list them all would be a pretty pointless exercise as anybody can google the word or check it through ITunes and Napster and come up with any number.

So the lists only contain songs that are meaningful to me. There are many I haven't as yet remembered or tracked down, but I'm sure they will eventually come back to me and be added. Hope you  enjoy the lists. Just click on the links below.

Oh and while I am on the subject of lists, I have had this great wish to list songs containing American Towns/Cities either in the title or the song itself. Maybe now I will start this.
