So, How Was It For You?

Well, that’s the 30 Day Song Challenge completed. I hope that you enjoyed it and enjoyed learning some things about me from it.

For anyone who wants to try and make a playlist or something, the full details are later in this post. I’d skip days 2 and 16 if I were you, mind.

Anyway, anxious as I am to please and appease my readership, I was wondering whether you had enjoyed having a theme for one, or even simply having some music to listen to? I was hoping to put a poll in here, but for some reason the site won’t let me, so give me your views in the comments instead. That’s all of you – I expect at least a dozen answers.

    I love getting to hear about what sort of music people listen to. I’ve lost track of how many of my favourite songs were recommendations, or even just people telling me that such-and-such was among their favourite songs, so this was great.

    On a shallower note, it’s also nice to have one’s taste in music validated. ‘Wolf Like Me’ is one of my absolute favourite songs, but so many people I know have admitted that they don’t get the appeal that I was starting to worry a bit.
