music appreciation

go right here.  keep on clicking “next” in the top right corner until you find a song you actually know.  write it down.  then click on the “play” icon for the song you know.  let it roll until it hits the song you don’t know.  compare and contrast!!  what year did the songs come out?  how many years have passed since the first to second?  what do you think about that?

give me at least 3 good sentences.
