          I understand completely the adult throwing things away. My wise old grandmother sold a lot of my stuff at her famous garage sales when I went off to college. She had wanted me to stay home and go to college but I would have had to have had my other grandmother and my other grandfather for college freshman English and P.E., respectively. I already had my other grandmother for 9th grade English, and I wasn’t going to put myself through that again.

    I really like the idea for this post. I would slap down my picks, but due to the death of Gord Downie, I suspect that I would over represent with the Tragically Hip out of respect and the fact that he is front of mind right now.

      I can understand that completely. I have to resist the temptation to put everything by The Beatles on my list. I know every song and can sing along, or even sing a cappella. The list I’m doing now, though, will, I think, tell me what my top groups are. I know The Beatles are #1, and I’m pretty sure who would be in the Top 10, but I’m looking for, say, the Top 50 or Top 100.
