Loved the list, Laz. That said, Egg Cream might be one of the worst songs I've ever heard.

Peef, you had my favorite list through almost the entire competition. You lost it to...someone else...right at the end (of my listening).

Entry:



Here we are, my first "Concept" list. What's the concept? I just wanted to make a list of songs with girl's names in the title.

It started as one of those simple ideas...I was driving in my car with Travis and "Oh Sherrie" came on for the 10,000th time. We started talking about songs with girl's names in them and very quickly I decided it would be fun to make a list of them. Then I decided that it might make a nice DI list. I think I started with "Oh Sherrie", "Kayleigh", "Kelsey" (by Metro Station) and "Meet Viriginia"...you're probably going to think the list improved fairly well over that.

Over the next year or so (yes, I've been working on this for a while), every time a new song would come on the radio, I'd get excited and make sure to add it to the list as soon as I got home.

Unfortunately, as these things often do, what started as a fun little hobby soon went down the rabbit hole of insanity. I suddenly had all of these arbitrary rules that mattered to no one but me for what could be on the list. It was for that reason that original staples from the list, "Bette Davis Eyes" and "Hurricane J" (replaced by "Chelsea Dagger" thanks to the Blackhawks) got the boot. The former for not being the name of the actual girl in the song, the latter because Jessie's name is not spelled out in the song title. Those are just two examples of my insanity in creating this list.

But, you know what? I think it was worth it. I really enjoy it and I've had a generally great time making it as well. Shouldn't that always be a part of the fun?

Anyways, I don't want to take up more of your time, I just thought you might like to hear a little about what went on while I made this list. I tried to preserve a bit of that radio feeling that I got while creating this, as you might hear in the opening and closing songs especially. I hope you guys enjoy!

Possibly literally.

NEVER expected this list to do so well. I figured I was just throwing this DI away with this list. Couldn't be happier. It was a real pleasure for me to put together. I'm happy to see things turn out this way
