Welcome back to one of my favorite recurring features (although it does result in some agonizing decisions). Since this will be the second go-around, I’m calling it “Songs By The Letter, Side 2.”
The rules are simple, just list your top 25 songs that start with the letter “B”. You can rank them if you want, or just list them in any old order. There was an unofficial house rule last time around to only list one song for each artist, just so there would be greater variety, but you don’t have to follow that if you don’t want to. It wouldn’t hurt my feelings if you found a letter with 25 different Beatles songs and listed them all. If you have fewer than 25, that’s OK, just list what you have. If you’re having too much trouble narrowing it down to only 25 songs, that’s OK too. I’m not the boss of you.
Oh, and since the question came up last week, articles like “A” and “The” should be skipped. So “A Hard Day’s Night” would belong under H, not A. Now, I did see a few people last week include some songs starting with the word “A”. If you did that, no worries, just try to stay consistent. If you put “A Hard Day’s Night” under A, don’t list it under H as well. (But again, I’m not the boss of you.)
After the letter Z, we’ll have one final post for songs that start with numbers or any other non-alphabetic symbols.
Since we just started last week (and we got a large influx of new users recently), here’s a link to last week with the letter A. (Even if nobody else looks at it, I will, and I’ll upvote if I like your list.)
Finally, here’s a link to the first go-around for B in case you’re looking for inspiration.
