@Oshawott  welcome back, missed you last week. I was pretty busy myself. This is the earliest I posted in about two weeks or so. As far as titles of songs, I love how music artists come up with their titles. It is not only fascinating but unique as well. To be completely honest. 8675309 did not request for that song to be played, but when I had seen the user name 8675309, the song was the first thing I thought of. So I just figured, why not. And why not give them the credit, after all, had I not seen the number as their user name, I would not have thought of the song. Have a great Monday, and a great week as well. Take care and stay safe.

The disco-inspired track kick starts Dua’s new era, first alluded to when a blonde-haired Dua took to social media on October 23, posting a snippet of the track.

Country: These Boots Are Made For Walking by Nancy Sinatra.  These Boots Are Made For Walkin'   "These Boots Are Made for Walkin' " is a hit song written by Lee Hazlewood and recorded by Nancy Sinatra. It charted on January 22, 1966, and reached No.1 in The Billboard Hot 100 and in the UK singles chart. 

Folk: Send In The Clowns by Judy Collins.  Send In The Clowns   "Send In the Clowns" is a song written by Stephen Sondheim for the 1973 musical A Little Night Music, an adaptation of Ingmar Bergman's 1955 film Smiles of a Summer Night. It is a ballad from Act Two, in which the character Desirée reflects on the ironies and disappointments of her life. Among other things, she looks back on an affair years earlier with the lawyer Fredrik, who was deeply in love with her but whose marriage proposals she had rejected. Meeting him after so long, she realizes she is in love with him.

Classical Crossover/Opera: Nessun Dorma by Jackie Evancho.  Nessun Dorma   Nessun dorma. " Nessun Dorma " ( Italian: [nesˌsun ˈdɔrma]; English: " None shall sleep ") is an aria from the final act of Giacomo Puccini's opera Turandot and one of the best-known tenor arias in all opera. It is sung by Calaf, il Principe Ignoto (the unknown prince), who falls in love at first sight with the beautiful... but cold Princess Turandot. Any man who wishes to wed Turandot must first answer her three riddles; if he fails, he will be beheaded. In the aria, Calaf expresses his triumphant assurance that he will win the princess. 

Until some time tomorrow, take care and stay safe.
