What did I record ?

Some years ago I gained possession of a small tape recording device.  I think we used to record new hire reps at work as they would role play certain scenarios.  Then we would play them back for the reps to hear themselves so they could critique their own verbiage, tone, pace, etc.  Those days have long since disappeared as our training program now has reps handling live calls in less than three weeks on the job ... but suffice it to say, the need for the tape recorder at work disappeared many years ago and I was allowed to just keep it for personal use.

So I have kept this device in my car as a means to make note of any songs on the radio that I hear and like and want to download later (or at least add to my YouTube favorites section).  I know many of you tech-savvy people out there probably have cooler functions on your iPods and XMradios, etc. where the system will track this information for you ... but I'm still "old school."

I noticed today that I'm near the end of the first side of the tape, which means I haven't transferred those song names in many, many months (probably well over a year).  So I figured that would be a fun blog because I can just list those songs here and see what I "liked" well enough to make verbal note of.  I hope this won't be too embarrassing, but here goes:

(Editor's Note: I have only listed each song once, but many were
mentioned several times.  Those are in BOLD typeface).

I was happy to hear the names of these songs again.  I had forgotten how much I loved some of them when I first heard them, some many years ago and some only once in this past year.  Now they are captured on this blog and maybe someday I'll download or at least listen to them on YouTube or something.  :)
