Mike's Music Page
Welcome to my corner of cyberspace. I love listening to music and spend several hours a day listening to my Ipod. My musical tastes are all over the map (as you'll see below), ranging from classic rock to classical, from R&B to country, and from 1950s oldies right up to today.
This page will continue to evolve, but I want to dedicate these pages to my favorite songs. As I listen to my Ipod, I have used the ratings to capture my faves - those songs I give a 4 or 5 star rating to. I currently have around 800 such songs. Use the following links to see the individual songs. These are sorted by artist the way Itunes does it - which is by first name for solo artists. As a result, you'll find Bruce Springsteen under "B", Elton John under "E"... well - you get the idea.
Abba - Buffalo Springfield
Cake - The Expendables
Fifth Dimension - Krokus
Laura Branigan - Queen
R. Kelly - ZZTop - 10,000 Maniacs
On this page I want to highlight those artists that have at least 3 songs that I've rated a 4 or 5. This will give an idea of the variety of music I listen to. So here, in alphabetical order (Itunes method) those artists are:
