I just love this part of what I do! Getting to see what your favorite songs were each month is always a happy thing. Krista again (at no. 1)! Well, I agree! That album Wilderness Plots is a compilation of Indiana songwriters and it’s a gem. I’ll put in a word here for Michael White who is also featured on the album. You all haven’t taken to his work as much as I have ~ I’ll admit his sound is a little unconventional ~ but give him another listen, ok?
It’s no surprise to see some of the big hitters in the singer/songwriter genre in the Top 20 again: Bill Morrissey at no. 4, Jack Williams at no. 8, Dougie MacLean at no. 12 and David Wilcox at no. 14 & 19. (Um-hm, I linked to David Wilcox’s MySpace page in order to wow you with my appearance in his Top 8. I have absolutely no idea how such a freak occurrence happened but there you go! J ) Folk/pop icon Bob Dylan squeezed onto the list at no. 20 with a classic tune and Dale Marsh, a favorite Second Life artist of mine (aka TallGuy Kidd) was voted in at no. 10 with a beautiful song about planting trees instead of housing developments.
Thanks for voting! Thanks for listening!
