I have this method of ranking music in my library, which currently consists of 34,968 songs: By default, all new songs in my library get ⭐️⭐️⭐️. As I listen to them, I sort them as follows: ⭐️ means it’s “rubbish” (as Dr. Spo would say) and I’ll probably delete it from the library, ⭐️⭐️ means it’s just “meh” but I’ll probably keep it, ⭐️⭐️⭐️ means it’s okay and we will probably talk over it, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ means I really like and may potentially sing at random, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ means everyone better shut the fuck up because my song is on! You know the kind of songs I’m talking about. We all have them.

These are mine, one post at a time.

I’m starting my approach to this with songs I’ve given ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ to in iTunes. There’s only 90 of them at the moment. I’ll probably sneak in an occasional ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ as well.

Back when I moved to Northwest Arkansas, there was an alternative radio station on the air that used to play all those little not-played on the radio songs.

This was one of them. I liked it so much I actually called the radio station to ask who it was, and what the song was. You know, like we had to do back before SoundHound and Shazam existed.

From their 1996 album “Count to Ten”, I give you Frogpond’s “Be”.

I was unaware that they had two other albums, or were from Missouri, until I started Googling for this post.

Until next time...
