  1. I really like posts on top songs or albums. Although I may not always agree with the arrangement, I still appreciate such posts because these provide several songs or artists that I know nothing about. This would inspire other music lovers especially to those who are talented in playing the guitar with their mandolin picks (for instance). Then, I get to search these and find songs that are really interesting. So, thank you for this one, too.
