Good Morning, Musicologists! We close the week by giving you the Beatles Top 100 songs and our multi-artist ‘By The Numbers’ playlist.
Here’s today’s musical programming:
11:00 a.m. The Beatles Top 100 NEW!
We have two house bands. The Beatles is one of those house bands. (Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers is the other.) This list is in no numerical order. It was done very scientifically, of course. Some Beatle fans (including me) sat around getting stoned and just threw out titles. If we agreed, we kept the song on the list. We scrubbed the ones we didn’t agree on. That’s about as scientific as we can get at this stage of the game. Some day when I am indeed fully retired, we’ll open this up to listeners by email and take votes. But for now, this is what you get. We like this list a lot.
The list itself will appear under the Playlist tab on the blog before I head out to work at 10:00 a.m. Check it out.
7:00 p.m. By The Numbers: Various Artists
Songs with numbers in the titles, or the lyrics…or both. Just over two hours of great music by many artists, including Alice Cooper, James Taylor, The Mamas &The Papas, J.J. Cale, Mudcrutch, Three Dog Night, The Doors, Stevie Nicks, Shawn Colvin, Rosanne Cash, The Searchers, Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell, Paul Simon, Wilson Pickett, Bob Marley & The Wailers, The Searchers, The Beatles, and more!
Before, in between, and after we have wide Open Stream with selections by The Music Mermaid. She has impeccable taste and plenty of songs to choose from. We’re free. We’re free 24/7. No subscription or credit card required. And no personal information requested. What more could you ask for?
