Here’s the short version of what’s going on. A longer, more boring version is still being worked on.
1) I’m assembling a list of at least 1,000,000 songs.
2) I’m listening to them alphabetically by title, separating them into songs I think are exceptional, and those that I don’t, and highlighting (in order) those that I think are.
3) For at least the first few months of 2018, I’m hoping to post 3 songs a day.
Here’s a list of the first couple thousand I’m digging through if you want to play along at home.
