I decided, in honor of the letter I, and my recent birthday, that I would pick some songs for this INSTALLMENT. They may not be my favorite tunes, but they do have three things in common:
1) They all start with the word I; not just the letter I, but the standalone pronoun. No 'I'm' or 'I've'.
2) They all made it onto the Billboard singles charts. In fact, they were all in the Top 10, because the list would otherwise be way too long.
3) I own all of them, on vinyl, or CD or download. Oh, who am I kidding? They are ALL vinyl or CD; what I have downloaded onto "the cloud" I can scarcely remember, but what I possess that I have held in my hand is a whole 'nother thing.
OK, four things:
4) Since that list is STILL way too long, I've further narrowed the list to songs starting with "I Can't", just because I can.
I Can't Dance - Genesis (#7 in 1992)
I Can't Get Next To You - the Temptations (#1 in 1969)
(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction - the Rolling Stones (#1 in 1965)
I Can't Go For That (No Can Do) - Hall & Oates (#1 in 1982)
I Can't Help Myself - the Four Tops (#1 in 1965)
I Can't Tell You Why - the Eagles (#8 in 1980)
I CAN'T wait to see what you all have written this week!
