This is fascinating article on Spotify data

I may have played a part in the popularity of "No Diggity" on Spotify since the 90's hip-hop station is my personal favorite.

The Triathlon Theme

Welcome to the upcoming theme, THE TRIATHLON (other title options were the TRIPLE CROWN, JIM'S THREESOME and I CAN'T MAKE UP MY MIND). It will take perseverance. It will take dedication. It may take several minutes to make your decisions.

The first leg of the event:
THE LONG DISTANCE CHOICE
This may be the most difficult for many of you. Choose a song released all the way back in 1965. It was a very good year. You will have plenty to choose from. I know it was a long time ago, but some it may be new to you or at least somebody.

Second leg:
THE SPRINT
This may be the most difficult for many of you. Choose a song that is less than 2 minutes long. Get in, do your stuff, get out. No muss, no fuss. Although I'm sure there will be some fussing. There will probably be muss as well.

Last leg:
THE INDUCTION
This may be the most difficult for many of you. Choose a song by an artist or band that you nominate for inclusion into the Unofficial Music Club Hall Of Fame. This song doesn't just nominate, though. It makes the deciding vote for automatic inclusion into our made up institute of questionable excellence.
You want the Thompson Twins? Who's gonna stop you?
You really think Anna Kendrick has paid her dues? Well, welcome aboard, you rock star you.
Really? Sting? Um, we may need to talk about this.
This is supposedly an awesome amount of power. Please wield it responsibly.

I made up these sub-themes without giving it any thought, so I have no idea which songs to submit.

These are all subject, of course, to all y'all's approval.

With love-
Jim

Music Club #57(?!) The "using only one line of lyrics, what's your favorite song” Theme

So not to over-think it, because it is still early and all, but are you thinking of the line as a stand alone line or is it within the conte...
