After taking a day off from thinking about them (and some help from Nathan’s music ear), I have cut down the 13 songs left in the running for December to the necessary Top 12 🙂
We listened to each tune through the first chorus – every few, I would check in with Nathan about what he thought.It really helped me having someone else’s opinion of the music that, for me, has built-in memories from singing along to them for most of the month.
I am very pleased with the picked songs. Since only one had to go, it was like ripping off a band-aid – Nathan gave me his input and reaasoning, then it was deleted from the list.
The December playlist will appear on the music sidebar for your listening pleasure
