List Mania - Songs Heard 'Round the World

List Mania- Songs Heard 'Round the World

Music makes the moment. You remember where you were and who was there when a song played on radio, at a concert, on CD, cassette (if you're, ahem, older than 30), or lately, on the Internet. Here (in no particular order) is a partial list of songs we've heard on our round-the-world trip. Most have hit radio pop charts on several continents. Other artists, like TKZee and Brooke Fraser, I've learned about only after attending concerts in South Africa and New Zealand. Some of the older stuff – Seal, Simply Red and Mariah Carey – are cassettes I bought in New Zealand to play in my 1986 Honda's Alpine stereo system. Rock on, world. Rock on.
