  1. Yay! Thank you so much for sharing your stories and songs with us. I loved each and every one and thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you better. Thank you again, my friend!
    PS: I think I have the comments fixed, feel free to hop in and comment wherever you like. I know Christy’s audience will love you. xo


    • Thank you for asking me to participate. It was so much fun, even if I experienced a bit of stress over eliminating such favourites as Keb’ Mo’ (huge blues fan here), Patti Smith, Depeche Mode, Siouxsie Sioux, Bikini Kill, Jose Carreras, Colin Hay, Bjork, Edvard Grieg, and Rachmaninoff. 🙂


      • Yes, I wanted to add all of the songs ever! Well, not quite…but this exercise was a GREAT reminder that music is really important to me!


      • Ooooh, now I understand why you would’ve preferred ten-twelve songs! I think you had one of my favorite playlists from the entire series.

        Thank you for joining us! I love that you’ve been both Words for the Weekend AND RoS!

        Hope all is well with you. Autumn will soon be upon is again and our dogs will be joyfully playing in the leaves again. Time flies forward, doesn’t it?



      • Thanks for the kind words about my playlist. I’ve actually been listening to it a lot since yesterday. It’s a great reminder of how important these artists are to my life. Paul’s is wonderful, too. I did the math in my head earlier today, and decided that I would’ve needed fourteen slots to cover everyone! 🙂 It was difficult, but so much fun. Thanks for hosting me. It’s a fab idea and series, just like Words for the Weekend. I am an honored alumna of both.

        All is well, thank you. It feels like autumn today where I live, which also reminded me that the actual season will be here in a couple of months. Until there are leaves to frolic in, my dog will just have to make do with chasing the neighbour’s cats. Hope all is well with you, too!


  2. Well, that was fun, maedez. I feel I know more about you – isn’t it great how one’s music can reflect who and what you are but is never fully inclusive of all that you are. Then you would have quite a list – books, clothes, art, etc. I past 60 but recently have started enjoying The Ramones, especially when driving over the mountains with my husband.


    • Thank you! It was difficult to narrow down the choices. A few were “gimmes,” of course. What made it hard was the form: it is meant to be a memoir of sorts, and not just a listing of songs you love. It required extra thought! You are definitely correct: these songs go a long way to showing my life and who I am, but they cannot, of course, paint a full picture. Between these songs and the things I normally share on my blog…that is a fuller (yet still partial and not at all impartial) truth.

      The Ramones are great for road trips. And there is no age limit to music. Many original punk acts are still rocking in their late forties to early seventies. It’s all about the attitude.


  3. Yes, I read how the music and your life connect. It did take a lot of thought and I am not sure I could do that for myself but certain songs immediately bring up a mental image for me: first dance, first boyfriend, etc. I have a very eclectic taste in music and it all started with a little, red plastic radio when I was 11.


    • It was difficult, to be sure. But I am so glad I participated!

      Aw, a little, red plastic radio sounds adorable. I am sure it gave you some lovely memories.
