probably go nuts. That's why making lists in the internet age works well for me. I have lists upon lists of information to draw from.
Yeah, I love the internet age.
The only music list I made was in grade school, for a class project (wasn't even graded). I was collecting a list of Novelty songs from the 50s and 60s. The list wasn't supposed to be a long one, but I made it into one. I listened to an oldies station for hours a day. I kept calling in and asking for novelty songs. I went to libraries and searched for books on the subject. Anyway, the list was super long. The teacher was shocked that I spent so much time on it. But nothing else came of it. Except the self-satisfaction of completing it...
Ha, that's awesome.

I was a list maker/note taker even in grade school, but I did not think to create top 25 lists for music until I started reading Metal Forces in 1987. The writers came up with annual lists, and I followed suit.
