Top 5 'I' Songs
« on: August 13, 2020, 11:34:48 AM »
Not songs that start with the letter 'I' but where the first word is 'I'. Not "I'd" "I'm" "I've" or "I'll"


1. I Don't Care Anymore by Phil Collins
2. I Thought I knew You by Matthew Sweet
3. I Feel For You by Chaka Khan
4. I Just Want to Make Love to You by Foghat
5. I Got You by Split Enz

HM: I Wanna Be a Cowboy by Boys Don't Cry

You’d think that would be constraining but just going from my iTunes library that’s a lot of songs. Top 5 would cone from these:

I Wish by Skee-Lo
I Alone by Live
I Believe In A Thing Called Love by The Darkness
I Feel It Coming by The Weeknd
I Hear Noises by Tegan and Sara
I Swear by All-4-One
I Write Sins Not Tragedies by Panic at the Disco
