Friday Music Blog-10 Greatest Singer/Songwriters of All Time

Welcome to the Friday Music Blog on Chief 187™Chatter. I am often reminded how vitally important music is in my life.

I cannot claim to be the aficionado others are, but music gives me immense pleasure which is enough to give me validity as a music fan.

Traveling by car with my children on the longest day of my week (Wednesday) I was preparing myself for traffic, a long commute, and hungry wails from children who would rather be home than in the car. I counteracted with bags of Goldfish Whole Grain crackers and water for them while I put Mommy’s playlist on the iPod.

Crafted to my specific taste, each song that came on relaxed me, cheered me, and encouraged me to stay humor-filled throughout the rest of my day. And, if a song came on I was not in the mood to listen, I simply skipped to the next!

From the many responses over the years on my Friday Music Blogs, I know my readership is equally passionate about music.

This week’s focus is Top 10 Greatest singer/songwriters of all time.

Try to generate a list of ten, but less or more is allowable. List the men and/or women who both write and sing their music that are worthy to be on this list in your opinion.

Please check back to this list throughout the day and weekend to see the updated entries to this prompt. As always, the more participation the better so share the link, tell a friend, co-worker, spouse, or frenemy, so the list is as comprehensive as possible!

Remember weekends are a great time to read or reread archived articles on Chief 187™Chatter. Those articles can be shared, too! If you enjoy my work, believe in what I do, and want to see it continue, spreading my blogs is helpful!
