Copy this list; leave in the bands you've seen perform live; delete the ones you haven't, and add new ones that you have seen until you reach 25. An asterisk means the previous person had it on their list. Two asterisks means the last two people who did this before you had that band on their list, etc.

[editorial comment #1: I listen to and like a number of bands that previously were on this list, but I've seen very little big-name, new live music in recent years. So if anyone WANTS to go see Belle & Sebastian, The Magnetic Fields, Arcade Fire, or The Polyphonic Spree with a non-hip fogey, I'd totally be up for it.]

[editorial comment #2: I totally would have seen REM too, but my parents wouldn't let me go with my friends b/c it was Rosh Hashana]

Comment and I'll give you a letter. In your journal, list 10 of your favorite songs that begin with that letter.

Don't Stop Believing--Journey [not this a cappella version]. 
Dance Hall Days--Wang Chung
Dancing in the Dark--Bruce Springsteen
Dancing with Myself--Billy Idol
Daniel--Elton John
Dream On--Aerosmith
(Don't Go back to) Rockville--REM
Don't Get Around Much Anymore--[standard, I have a Duke Ellington version]
Don't Fear the Reaper--Blue Oyster Cult
Down Under--Men at Work

Wow. Clearly I stopped listening to music in the '80s.
