Post 100!!!

I figured for my 100th post, I'd make a list of my Top 100 songs. I'm sure I'm leaving plenty off of this, so there may be a "Top 100 list snubs" list in the future. These are in no particular order after the first 5 or so, they're just up as they came to me, songs by the same artist grouped together. I could've had a lot more of some bands, like the Beatles, or the Mountain Goats or Wilco, but I tried to limit myself. Look for more "100th Post Week" celebratory posts later in the week!

How is it that you've had 100 posts already? I think I'm at 84, and I've been blogging longer than you. Not only that, now that you're having a celebratory week for your 100th, I can't have one for MINE because (even though I already had the idea before you hit the century mark) it will seem like I'm copying you. AND, I also was going to use "I don't want the world, I just want your half" as the title of one of my upcoming posts (no lie, a thought that came to me mid-week last week) but also now cannot do that.

First you stole my blog thunder by being a better writer, and now not only are you a better writer but you also write better MORE. I thought it was quality, not quantity but apparently I have neither.

I think I may use this comment as a post of my own later, and will probably go off on other tangents as well.

And yet, in spite of the fact that you are a better writer who writes more frequently, I cannot hate you. Not just because you're one of my boyfriend's best friends and one of mine as well, but also because you're just that kind of guy.
