PLAYLIST FOR “TOP 12 TURNTABLE FOR ONE SONGS IN 2012”

30 Dec

I’ve played about 500 songs in the past year and thought I’d end 2012 with a dozen of my favorites culled from some of my favorite weekly themes. The Billy Joel song at the end is something that’s been running through my head the past week.  Sadness or Euphoria?  I wish you a great imbalance of the latter for 2013.

HINT FOR THIS SATURDAY NIGHT’S THEME (12.29.12)

26 Dec

HINT:

What are the 3-Rs of any New Year’s celebration? Recollections, Reflections, Resolutions, and Renewals — ok, I never said I was a math whiz. So let’s take a backward look at 2012; and since hindsight is always 20-20, I’m going to do the show without my glasses.

HINT:

Unquenchable desires, unending demands, unbridled ids – another way to look at it might be Christmas Wish List. Which approach do you think I’ll take?
