Today’s the day I knock a bunch of you off your branches. If you haven’t learnt how to fly yet, put padding under your tree before you climb up to your roost.
As I mention non-stop, I love many, many kinds of music. So do a lot of you. I know some of you, though, think country music is to metal as Voldemort is to Harry Potter. To you folks, let me irritate you further by stating that country music has some of the best voices of any genre, and it’s lovely background music after a long, lazy Sunday lunch.

Most of you were too young to listen to metal before this year. You were still doing “The Wheels on the Bus” and “Humpty Dumpty”. To help you catch up on some of the great music of the most recent years, I’ll be posting 20 songs per year from 2008 and after, not 15 or 10 songs. That’s four songs per day for a year per week excluding weekends.
If you’re still too young to listen to metal, see my parallel series, “Mammal’s Thousand Years Of Nursery Rhymes”.
Today’s words of wisdom and solid advice, based on personal and very recent experience: If you’re wearing headphones, your cat is sitting on your keyboard and you start nodding your head rhythmically in time to the music, your cat may think you want to play a game. If he bites you on the top of your head, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
