|"Ain't gonna hurt nobody... I'm just dancin' y'all..."|
When I was in junior high, my dad told me that if I spent as much time studying as I did learning the words to songs on the radio, I'd be a straight-A student. I'm sure that was a "proud dad" moment for him.
I used to teach spin and putting together a playlist would always take WAY longer than necessary... I've been known to spend hours checking out music online (RIP WinMX). I'd start downloading random songs (that, of course, I wasn't even planning on playing in class), which would inevitably lead me to download other random songs that weren't going to be played in class... and next thing you know it's 2 hours later and I have all these great new songs in my queue and a blank spin playlist.
Even better than recorded music though... LIVE music! Since my tastes vary, so does my concert history.
My 1st three live music experiences?
- Steve Miller Band
- Dave Matthews Band
Since then, I've actually seen close to 80 concerts. How do I know? Because

Probably the only place where you'll see Britney Spears next to Neil Young.
I thought it would be fun to put together this week's Music Monday playlist based on shows I've seen. Of course, I have wayyy more songs than I can fit, so expect to see a part 2 playlist soon!
