I was stumped. Mystified. I love making lists, even difficult ones, but if I could only listen to three songs for eternity, what would I choose?
Two of them were easy. "Mrs. Potter's Lullaby" by Counting Crows and "Kathleen" by Josh Ritter are both no-brainers for me. I've thought a lot about #3, but I just don't know what would make the cut! I love the song "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring," so that's a definite possibility. I keep thinking of other ones, though. Sufjan Stevens' rendition of "Come, Thou Fount" is tempting to include as well.
I asked a group of people about this the other day and got some interesting responses. So I would like to pose this question to you, my faithful readers. If you could only listen to three songs for the rest of your life, what would they be? I am anxiously awaiting your responses. You will not be judged.
