Now down to the letter "D," here's what the playlist ended up being today:
|D.W. Washburn||The Monkees|
|Daddy Come and Get Me||Dolly Parton|
|Damn Girl||Justin Timberlake|
|The Dance||Miss Saigon Soundtrack|
|Dance the Night Away||Deborah Morgan|
|Dance With My Father||Luther Vandross|
Thoughts and observations I experienced while listening to this list:
- So, another Tammy Wynette songs makes the list. I swear I don't have that much of her music. It's just that all their titles begin with a letter of the alphabet, I guess.
- With that said, D-I-V-O-R-C-E is probably my favorite Tammy song, as it's about the power of words and games parents play on their kids that probably everyone can relate to in one way or another.
- I didn't recognize that D.W. Washburn song by The Monkees at all, and I didn't like it.
- I was not familiar with the Dolly Parton song, Daddy Come and Get Me, and found it a little too ambiguous for my taste. Is she really in a mental institution or is that just a metaphor for a bad relationship? Did she kill the guy? Or did she just fire two warning shots—into his head?
- I also didn't recognize Daddy's Money by Ricochet (a group I've never even heard of) or Damn Girl by Justin Timberlake. This is my iPod I'm listening to, right?
- I love pretty much everything from Miss Saigon and The Dance is no exception.
- Both Dance and Dance the Night Away take me right to the line-dancing place, as we do a dance to each of those songs. And the dance to the latter one is one my favorite dances.
- Dance With My Father is one of my favorite songs of all time.
- There are a lot of songs with the word dance (or some derivative of it) in their titles. The next five or six songs on my list (which I didn't play, but saw them when I stopped after the last song I did play) all started with the word "Dancing."
