My favorite songs


I’ll be adding to this from time to time.   This is far from a complete list of all the music I love!   This began as a feature every Monday called “Monday Melodies,” but sometimes when I hear a song and am just itching to post it, it’s not Monday.  So now I just post the songs whenever I feel like it.
