A FOUND LIST

I still don't have what was once a lifelong compulsion (pre-brain op) to make lists, no inclination at all. But I do now and then find lists. A post-op compulsion has been to go through my iTunes library alphabetically, and I just noticed in the late "S"'s a series of songs that began with the word "sweet" so here it is:

SWEET & LOVELY Thelonious Monk (various versions, including from MONK'S DREAM and MONK AT CARNEGIE HALL)
SWEET APPLE RED Chris Mason (& gang on BRIGHT LYRE FINDS A VOICE)
SWEET BABY JAMES James Taylor
SWEET BLACK ANGEL The Rolling Stones
SWEET DREAMS (OF YOU) Patsy Cline
SWEET GEORGIA BROWN Anita O'Day (on JAZZ ON A SUMMER'S DAY, one of the most original and greatest all time jazz vocalizations)
SWEET GEORGIA BROWN Bing Crosby & The Rhythm Boys (very early)
SWEET GEORGIA BROWN Stephane Wrembel (two versions ten years apart)
SWEET JANE Cowboy Junkies
SWEET JANNIE Van Morrison
SWEET LEILANI Bing Crosby
SWEET LITTLE ANGEL B. B. King (live)
SWEET LITTLE ROCK & ROLLER Chuck Berry
SWEET LITTLE SIXTEEN Chuck Berry
SWEET LORRAINE Art Tatum
SWEET LORRAINE The Nat King Cole Trio (two versions)
SWEET LORRAINE Sidney Bechet
SWEET SIXTEEN Big Joe Turner
SWEET SIXTEEN B. B. King
SWEET STUFF Horace Silver
SWEET VIRGINIA The Rolling Stones
THE SWEETEST TABOO Sade
