You will only be able to listen to 5 songs the rest of your life.  You have 1 minute to decide which 5.

 

GO!

 

Can't work under such pressure. I'm old, dadgumit. "Sounds of Silence" and "Stairway to Heaven" would be two not on the list.

Anyone bidding on "Dinner with Hawk" in the White Sox ultimate auction?

Yes, but only for the opportunity to shout "He gone" after I get to the restaurant and ask for a table for 1.

I think Vargas hitting ahead of Arcia is inspired.

Perhaps Vargas will jolt both of my fantasy teams back to life. 

I look forward to the day that a pitching prospect is truly blocked by good pitchers.

I've just changed the rules.  I need six songs.

 

Red Dirt Girl - Emmylou Harris.  

 

Has to be in there somewhere.  If you look up "how to write a song" on google it comes up with this as an example.  Or it should, anyway.

Go Twins!

OK...7 songs.

 

It's a Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong.  

 

And only Louis Armstrong.  

 

All other versions suffer by comparison.

Chi Town ever hear the Over the Rainbow version by Eva Cassidy on the Songbird CD?

May all our prospects be All Stars and the beer be free.

I would agree with that. And if anyone says the Willie Nelson version comes close I'll stab your ears.
