Urban Enthusiasm presents:

So I did this list when I was 18 and posted it on Facebook. I wanted to be venerable and share it with the WRIR family. I haven’t changed the order or song selection. Tonight I go down memory lane to relive why I chose these songs. Check out my post from 2009:

When I came home Harrison told me he wrote out a list of his top 10 favorite songs.We must have been on that twin vibe because I was working on my top 10 favorite songs.
