Edit: Jamie pointed out that I forgot Mr Linky one last time. I fixed that.
Now we come to the end. Set 200.
Seriously...200 is a pretty big deal. To date I've posted 1025 songs on 199 Sets. The math should make it 199 x 5 for 995, but there were a few times when I posted more than 5 songs on a Set, bringing us to 1025.
Through Set 199 I have included 474 different artists and there have been 67 duplicate tracks, not counting the same track recorded by different artists or coincidentally having the same title. Here is a list of tracks that have been used more than twice.
- Photographs and Memories by Jim Croce has been used three times
- People Got To Be Free by the Rascals has been used three times
- The Look of Love by Dusty Springfield has been used three times
- Landslide by Stevie Nicks has been used three times
- Good Morning Starshine by Oliver has been used three times
- I Can Hear Music by The Beach Boys has been used three times
- Rainy Night in Georgia by Brook Benton has been used three times
- Secretly by Jimmie Rogers has been used three times
- Turn Around Look at Me by The Vogues has been used three times
- Iris by The Goo Goo Dolls has been used four times
So Pam chose her favorite tunes from Sets 1 through 198, while I chose groups of tunes I can safely say I've enjoyed more than others. For our final Set 200, I'm combining my 5 favorite Five on Friday Sets from the last 199.
You'll note from my list above that Iris appears four times on FoF. It was on three of the five Sets I chose for today, so I replaced two of the appearances.
Please enjoy my Super-Sized-Mega-Step-Over-Lip-Lock Set 200. I've enjoyed preparing this feature every week. I've enjoyed visiting those who share their own musical interests.
But 200 is enough for me. And so, The End.
