You get a 3-for-1 special today!  Here’s the first.  Enjoy.

I’ve been wanting to do a countdown featuring songs about songs (you know, songs about music, dancing, and/or a certain genre).  I have my 10 songs, but even as I posted Number 10, I wasn’t sure about the order.  So, this one will form as I go.  I normally have my list ready to go before I start.  MY TOP 10 is a music video countdown, but with some songs (maybe two in  particular) occuring before the MTV era, I will  have to improvise and pull something from Dailymotion or YouTube.  Here goes.

3. Jennifer Lopez “Play”

This is the jam that you want to “play” over and over.  And what person who loves to dance (like me!) cannot relate to the line about making your request to the DJ over and over before s/he finally decides to play it?   That’s the line I like to talk along to at the top of my lungs.  This is the highlight of the J.Lo album.   It does have other delights, but this is definitely a standout.  “Play” becomes that song that “Play” is about.
