I’m going to assume you’ve read About Dream Songs and already know the list was compiled over 366 mornings. I decided to make it a Leap Year because there’s nothing normal about doing this. But that doesn’t mean there will be 366 songs. Some appeared more than once during that span, but will still only be mentioned one time on the list. The number of times determines where it falls into the countdown. For instance, a song heard three times will score higher than a song heard two times. Get it?

The song heard the most times will be named number one. I know what it is, but you’ll need to follow if you want to find out.

Hopefully you’ve been enjoying the memories and insights into some of the best (and worst) music that has made up my waking mind’s playlist. I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night is not only the title of this labor of musical love and a great classic rock song, but also describes the size of this project. The Classic Rocker site has gotten a little too busy to manage. So to streamline this beast of burden (sorry Stones fans, I couldn’t help myself), the following 202 songs and 36 bonus tracksa total of 238 if you’re mathematically challenged and don’t have a calculator handy – have been retired. There’s a chance they’ll reappear in a future Grand List or ebook, but for right now (if you haven’t been following), here’s what you’ve missed so far…
