Here's a musical fantasy I've been recently indulging; I want your help - What song do you wish could've been recorded by someone who'd already died by the time the song had been written?
With the easy access the Internet provides about the year great songs were written and the year a favorite performer of yours died, you're just minutes away from rewriting musical history. And it's harmless; no one can accuse you of revisionism, political correctness, bad breath.
Yes, of course I've got a list, need you ask? But today I break with my past model. I'm not giving away my songs and their too-soon-gone performers until I hear yours. I've suspected for a while that my opinionated views have been usurping some incipient creativity. This time I provide none of my (admittedly brilliant) nuggets before hearing yours. I promise I won't even check to make sure you got your dates straight.
