Songs to Love and Die By

I have an obsession with music.

To curb my addiction, I troll the web (blog sites and youtube) to find new and exciting artists that aren’t well know yet, I write down partial names of songs in movies so I can find the artist, and I create playlists!

I am constantly making mega playlists.
I burn them to CD and give them to friends (Gracie and I are always swapping CDs), or they stackup in the car for driving excursions or I update them to my iPod and take it everywhere.

Each playlist is for something specific – for example;
– workout
– chillout
– happy playlist
– driving
– RnB greatest
– classical or modern instrumental
– dinner music
I currently have almost 10,000 songs on my iTunes and I haven’t migrated any of my 200+ CDs (which are sitting in boxes under the stairs) into iTunes yet….
Here is my list of all time favourite songs in no particular order or genre. For the purposes of this blog, I’ve had to make a cutoff number, so I’ve stopped at 40….but oh how I could go on!
