Today’s Daily Prompt at The Daily Post:
The Satisfaction of a List. Who doesn’t love a list? So write one! Top five slices of pizza in your town, ten reasons disco will never die, the three secrets to happiness — go silly or go deep, just go list-y.

- ABC by The Jackson 5 – pure, innocent fun from the 70’s. I always sing along.
- Amie by Pure Prairie League – I love this song and have been known to put it on repeat for extended periods. Before we married, Mr. Stuck had a roommate who was a local musician. I loved to harmonize with him.
- Aqualung by Jethro Tull – love the imagery in this song.
- Amos Moses by Jerry Reed – we had this album when I was a kid and I learned it word for word.
- Aubrey by Bread – I think David Gates is an underappreciated songwriter.
- Ain’t Nothing Like the Real Thing by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell – a classic.
- American Pie by Don McLean – this was overplayed when it was first on the radio, but now I really enjoy the whole dang thing.
- Annie’s Song by John Denver – I sang this for my sister’s wedding, and now I associate it with her. This is for you, Missy.
- At Seventeen by Janis Ian – I first heard this as an insecure adolescent and it seemed to ring pretty true.
- A Beautiful Morning by The Rascals – I can’t sing this without smiling. It makes me feel good.
