    I did not know the first one, but Pink Floyd, Elton, Ozzy & David are in my top 20 favorite artists. Great picks ;)

    Thanks for the Elton and Bowie. It's been a long time since I've heard those. Don't quite understand sports madness (other than the Dodgers of course).

    Fun 'Madness' set! Didn't know all of the songs, but that's okay. I don't know all the teams either. Good thing I don't fill out brackets. Two of 'my' teams lost last night. One game was close and exciting, however.

  1. That was awesome! Hadn't heard Psychotic Reaction before - loved it. Madman Across the Water and All the Madmen were my other favorites from this set.

  1. Interesting take on the subject, as opposed to just Dancing songs...

    Well done and enjoy the games

    Great theme for the week!

    I've always liked Madman Across the Water - vintage Elton John at its best! And you can't go wrong with a bit of Bowie either!

  1. Never been as big a fan of Crazy Train as some. I like a lot of Ozzy's other stuff better. Cool theme though.

    Wanted to comment belatedly as that list made me laugh. I liked it.

    (your post also mentions New Orleans... and I like that too!)
