Since Thanksgiving, I have been making weekly podcasts about favorite songs. Since then many songs have asked me, Camden, how can I become a favorite? The answer is rather simple. To become eligible to become a Real Good Song with Me, Camden Joy, you must be a song that has endured a binge-listening at least two or three times in my life. Which means that these songs I’m podcasting about are songs I’ve listened to hundreds of times through the years and never tired of. If you feel you are such a piece of music, please let me know.
For those who need to catch up, here are the first eleven ( a “Camden dozen”) that I’ve discussed.
