I'm sure it's been all over the Interwebs as a game/meme/whatever it's called, but I saw it last night on a friend's page (thanks Paul!) and decided to share here. Oh yeah, it's musical, which I haven't done in a while... follow me below the dingledoodle squigglie dKosagnocchi dividerthingie fold after a word from our sponsor...


Here at Top Comments we strive to nourish community by rounding up some of the site's best, funniest, most mojo'd & most informative commentary, and we depend on your help!! If you see a comment by another Kossack that deserves wider recognition, please send it either to topcomments at gmail or to the Top Comments group mailbox by 9:30pm Eastern. Please please please include a few words about why you sent it in as well as your user name (even if you think we know it already :-)), so we can credit you with the find!  

It's pretty simple, really:

Name five songs you think everyone should have on their mp3 player. Each song needs to be a different genre.

Here's what I came up with off the top of my head. Which is to say, if I did it again now, I'd choose between one and five of them differently:

Classical: Symphony #9/Ode To Joy - Beethoven
Big Band: Sing Sing Sing - Louis Prima (covered by Benny Goodman)
Rock: Solsbury Hill - Peter Gabriel
Folk: Blowin' in the Wind - Bob Dylan
New Age - Tubular Bells - Mike Oldfield
There are many, many songs that could fill those genres. There are genres upon genres that could fill just the single word "Rock", and if I'd had more time today I'd done a top 5 rock-subgenre songs. However, K1 had the State swim meet today, and that's where I was :).

What are your 5 musical must-haves at this particular moment?

Brillig's ObDisclaimer: The decision to publish each nomination lies with the evening's Diarist and/or Comment Formatter. My evenings at the helm, I try reeeeallllyy hard to publish everything without regard to content. I really do, even when I disagree personally with any given nomination. "TopCommentness" lies in the eyes of the nominator and of you, the reader - I leave the decision to you. I do not publish self-nominations (ie your own comments) and if I ruled the world, we'd all build community, supporting and uplifting instead of tearing our fellow Kossacks down.
From JayRaye:
The top comment is the actual poster in annieli's comment, but the intro is needed!!!
From Steveningen:
In my diary Mary Cheney and wife give Liz a piece of their minds, jayden responded to a comment wondering if the airing of family disputes over the issue of marriage equality was appropriate. A serious case as to why it certainly was appropriate was made.

Laura Clawson brings us stupidity on parade. Mokurai brings a good solution.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
