You Could Distinguish Miles from Coltrane

As part of the blog revamping, I’ve decided the blogs needed a cohesive theme. Since my thoughts don’t generally have a theme from moment to moment, and I refuse to be boxed in by even my own set of rules, the cohesiveness will come from the blog titles: they’ll all be song lyrics.

Music plays a huge role in my life (I spend about 10 hours a day listening to music), and my musical tastes are as random as my thought processes. In the last two days my ipod has played Ingrid Michaelson, Elton John, Iron & Wine, She & Him, John Mayer, Feist, Bob Dylan, Billy Joel, Coldplay, Alison Krauss, Ben Folds, Ben Harper, Goldfrapp, Dolly Parton, Death Cab, Flyleaf, Pink Martini, Muse, Rosemary Clooney, Ryan Adams, The Killers, The Blind Boys of Alabama, U2, The Wreckers, Jack’s Mannequin, Chicago, Van Morrison, Derek Webb, Charlie Peacock and various musicals…to name a few.

Can you keep up with that? I’m issuing a challenge to keep you in the game. Points will be awarded to the first person to correctly identify the provenance of each blog title. Song title is a must, but you get a bonus for correctly identifying the artist and album from my personal playlist that includes that title. Sure, you may no music, but how well do you know me?

Wondering why you want points? When you accumulate an impressive number, points may be redeemed for fabulous prizes chosen specifically for you, by me. Fun, huh?

This title is an easy one. I promise they won’t all be this straight forward or this mainstream. I also promise that they won’t be entirely random and that they will be appropriate to whatever I’m blogging about.

Let the games begin!!
