I love my iPod nano. And my favorite thing to do with my iPod is to put it on shuffle songs. Songs are put in random order. You never know what song is coming up next. I love it. I feel all nervous waiting to see what's coming up next. Is it gonna be one of my massively great 80's songs? Is it going to be an awesome worship song? Is it going to be something side-splitting funny that I have on there? I love the shuffle. Sometimes I can't even wait until the song is over...I have to forward on to the next song, just to see what it is. I know. I'm a dork.
My band and I enjoyed the shuffle a lot last weekend. We took turns shuffling through each other's iPods. There was much fun music talk...like discussions on what exactly IS the best duet of the 80's (Separate Lives? Almost Paradise? Never Gonna Let You Go?).
And we have been enjoying batting around this question for a couple of weeks now:
Who is the all-time best female singer? And, who is the all-time best male singer?
It has been fun trying to beat this one down. Different generations. Different styles. No rules...except you can only have one number 1. And, we excluded classical singers.
I will tell you mine soon. But first..who is at the top of your list? Remember...not your favorite artist. Not the best artist. But, the best singer. Male and female.
Bring it on.
