Welcome back to one of my favorite recurring features (although it does result in some agonizing decisions). Since this is 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 “H”. 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.
After the letter Z, we’ll have one final post for songs that start with numbers or any other non-alphabetic symbols.
Special shout-out to The Internet’s Cappadocious, who, in last week’s thread, posted Songs By The Letter By The Numbers for the letter F. This week, we’ll get the numbers for the letter G.
Finally, here’s a link to the first go-around for H in case you’re looking for inspiration.
(Pictured in the header: I originally announced the return of Songs By The Letter in a Day Thread. When I was picking out a header for that thread, I thought about using a picture of a bowl of alphabet soup. I couldn’t find a generic picture that I liked – I ended up going with the generic guitar that’s the default for any music-related posts – but I found this one that would work for H. Also, Help! is a great song and deserves a mention, even if it didn’t quite make my list.)
