Songs You Should Etcetera: the entire list

Dear The Internet,

In March 2010 I started something that was to forever change the way that the world experienced their music: standing on a street corner and shrieking Duran Duran lyrics at the top of my lungs until local shopkeepers took matters into their own hands.

I also started doing a less-confrontational thing most weekdays on Facebook called Song You Should Rediscover Today Because It Is Awesome, a way of reminding people of a song that they should rediscover, the day upon which they should rediscover it, and of the awesomeness of said song.

That grew into this – a blog on the prestigious internet.

The premise is straightforward: this is a daily(ish) writing challenge so each one is written on the day (or, increasingly often, the night before) in 20 minutes or less from the moment I decide on the song, and it has to be the first idea I have, taken to its conclusion. The only edits I’m permitted to do are for spelling, grammar, repetition or glaring inaccuracy (which has to be acknowledged). The idea is that if my brain is going to be full of decades of music, it should at least do some damn work for the neurons it’s taking up. It was originally written every weekday unless I’m a) ill, b) without access to a computer, or c) cripplingly hungover, but since hitting #500 I’ve been a bit more lassez-faire about it. Also, more ill/hungover. I barely every update it these days, but it’s nice to know it exists in a state of largely suspended animation.

While the list is ever-growing, I am also working on getting the as-yet-unwritten entries done and linked up even as you read this, adding and editing like a master sculptor painstakingly carving a block of marble until his statue has the most beautiful and offensively lifelike wang that human skill can fashion.

And you may polish it. Metaphorically.

Yours ever,

Andrew P Street
