Countdown to 500 (#2)

This is post 496. The anticipation is palpable.

Have some cake.


It’s early. Have a cuppa.


Let’s turn on some tunes.

Not just any tunes…

If you google for Top 500 songs, the 500th song will vary based on who published the article. So, just for fun, today we are going to listen to the songs considered the 500th greatest song of all time.

A little s.o.u.l system will get us started right:

According to Rolling Stone, this is the 500th greatest song of all time.

Hello, Smokey!

In the 500th slot of country’s greatest is this:

Did you know I have over 500 songs on my playlist? The good news is that I haven’t downloaded anything in about a month, so I was able to count backwards on my “recently added” list to find the 500th song on my phone’s music player…

Are you up and moving yet? This is a party!! Everyone needs to hit the dance floor!

A movie from 2009 fits today’s 500 theme. Any guesses before the big reveal?

It’s called the 500 Days of Summer and if you click the link, you can listen to the FULL album, but for our purposes here, I chose just 1 song from the soundtrack to share with you this morning…

And to finish off this eclectic list of 500, I give you my favorite 500 song of all. In fact, I love this song so much, I had my wedding party walk down the aisle to it…
