  1. Mary,

    You found a few "Qs" for today's music lineup! :) The quantity and quality of your playlists each day this month have been quintessential to my daily routine. I'm gonna let these songs play in the background while work on other things now. Happy A2Zing, my friend!

  2. Oof, not too many Q's! How about "Caribbean Queen" by Billy Ocean for 1984? (Although I do love "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.")
    Black and White: Q for Quentulus Quazgar

  3. Q is a tricky letter for this! But a great selection of tracks nonetheless!

  4. Well, you did find one, and it's a good one...

  5. I had a feeling there would be difficulties in finding Q songs but love this list and love that last song...always did.

  6. I would have said "Dancing Queen" - and given up ;-)

  7. Q or not, there ares some good songs there!
