My Hot 100 - #25 - 1
Well, it's time to name my 25 favorite songs of all time. If you need to get caught up, check out parts 1, 2 & 3 at the provided links. It was very tough putting this list together. I had to find the tracks that I will never get tired of hearing. In the case of my favorite artists, I had to choose just one to represent them. While you may not care for my picks, know that I put a ton of thought and re-listening towards picking them.

Well, it's time for Part 3 of my countdown of my 100 favorite songs of all time. If you need to catch up, here are the links for Part 1 and Part 2. Just to refresh your memory, no genre is excluded from consideration, only one song per artist would make the cut, and if a performer had success as a soloist and with a band, that counts as two separate artists.

It's time for Part 2 of my 100 favorite songs of all time! (Check out Part 1 if you haven't already.) These are the songs that have permanent status on my YouTube and Spotify playlists. Just a quick reminder: I am only counting one song per artist, soloists and their bands count as two artists, and all genres and musical eras are fair game.
My Hot 100 - #100 - 76
I just celebrated another birthday. I've been on this planet for more than 40 years now, and I've heard a lot of great music over that time. I found myself thinking about that, and I decided to take on a challenge that even Ally thought was crazy. I decided to name my 100 favorite songs ever!
It seemed so simple, I thought as I waited. After I got laid off, I needed a quick infusion of money to keep the roof over my head. Unfortunately, the neighborhood was poor; there weren't any job openings. That seemed weird to me since the news had been reporting a lot of unexplained deaths frequently in the area. Surely, that must've opened some jobs, right?
It just looked like an ordinary black notebook. I found it in a box while cleaning up the garage. It didn't stand out in any real way aside from the odd choice of parchment for the pages rather than regular paper. I don't even remember how I got it; yet, I got this weird sense of déja vù about it. I swore I found it before.

'Hot Stuff' - A Cop Comedy Ahead Of Its Time
Hi, and welcome back to Second Chances where the maligned, forgotten, and ignored are brought in for questioning. Those who've kept up with my work here know that I have a thing for action-comedies. Five spots in my "Top 40 Favorite Movies" list are taken by Lethal Weapon 3, Hot Fuzz, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Demolition Man, and Beverly Hills Cop. However, there's one movie that just barely missed the list that practically set the stage for the whole genre. It's the largely forgotten 1979 cop comedy Hot Stuff.
