    Hi Jeff,

    Week after week you put Echosmith’s “Bright” at number 20.

    I happen to love that song and would put it at number one if I was still writing Top 14 surveys like I used to do from 1972 to 1981.

    I guess it just proves that great minds don’t always think alike, especially when it comes to music.

    Reminds of the time I made this wonderful tape of music that came out around October 1977 just for a trip I made with my buddies to a dude ranch in the Catskills.

    After playing Roger Daltrey’s “Say It Ain’t So, Joe” and a couple of Moody Blue songs from 1967, my friend who was driving stopped the car on the NY Thruway as Chicago’s “Baby What a Big Surprise” was playing, to put on the new Billy Joel album ‘The Stranger’.

    I worked all night on that tape, and boy was I pissed!

    Getting back to “Bright”, it’s a simple delightful song that just flows.

    I don’t know why you keep letting it stall at number 20.

    Take care,

    Paul Herman

      Paul,
      Thanks for the feedback. (Although I’m wondering, why did you post it on my About page and not one of my Top 20 posts?)

      Unfortunately, “Bright” hasn’t been clicking with it. But please don’t interpret my placement as an admonishment to anyone who likes it. Feel free to like what you like!

      Maybe my take on “Bright” will develop in the future, but right now, it is perfectly innocuous and just does not leave much of an impression on me.
