I Have A Little List

Well, two little lists.  They are lists of songs.  Love songs and name songs.  The inspiration for this blogitem came from the IDDiot's Delight Digest, which began as a way for fans of the New York City DJ Vin Scelsa to meet online, and has morphed into more of a music, movie, and pop culture discussion group.  At one point in its history, members were challenged to post "mixes," really groups of songs related in some idiosyncratic way, on a special web site.  I never got around to it, but I did make a couple of lists.  The challenge is long over, the web site is long gone.  But I still have my lists.  And if you think I'm just going to eschew posting them just because they're old, poorly thought out, and not even close to comprehensive, you haven't been reading this blog for the last few years.
