I received a $50 iTunes gift certificate from my Uncle Roy, & have decided to buy fifty songs with it. I posted a general call for suggestions on the facebooks, with the comment "What's the Best Song?" The couple responses I got so far, took me at my word, "best", meaning greatest songs, that of course I already have (like Miles Davis & Leonard Cohen). Mr Amidon suggested the first track off of Kanye's new album, along with some obscure profanity-laced folkmusic, which was more what I'm looking for. I'm taking suggestions in the comments section of this blog. I intend to post the full list here, with perhaps some mini-reviews.
