@AdamPandora hey guy, thanks for posting, as well as participating. As I had said to @AlyssaPandora , I will say the same too you. I give you my word, I will hear these songs that are posted. No matter who posts the songs. The idea behind this whole thing, is to try and expand music listeners experience, and perhaps even like a whole genre of music. At least that was my thought, and plan. tyshad21 is the one who had given me the idea when he was posting (S.O.T.D.) but for some reason he quit posting. So when I decided to pick it back up, this is what I came up with. I hope you continue with us each day AdamPandora. I also hope others will as well. You take care and stay safe. Have a great day, as well as a great week. Thanks again @AdamPandora. I listened to your songs that you had picked AdamPandora, I agree with Alyssa, Fleetwood Mac and the song Dreams was great. Thanks again Adam. Be safe.
