Oh, you thought this series was done at The Letter Z? Nay, my musical compatriots, we have a bonus round as our parting gift.
The Letter Y is all about You, naturally. You are all so very lovely.
After a few weeks of jumbo-sized Alphabet Soup columns, somewhat predictably, The Letter X is a short one. We’re a bit punk rock this week.
Indulge me while I get rather introspective in this jumbo-sized installment of Alphabet Soup.
The Letter V was surprisingly not too difficult to find five great songs to talk about. V may be my least favorite Scrabble letter, but this week we’ve got some ’90s gems as well as some more recent tunes.
Believe it or not, I am not offering five songs with “Under” in the title. Let us call this week “U for Unusual.”
The Letter T is another jumbo-sized letter because I couldn’t make up my damn mind. So many good songs, so much with which to sing along. Let’s get to it:
The Letter S is truly jumbo-sized this week. So, so many good songs start with this common letter, and even though I have a lot to talk about this week, believe me when I say that I am still holding back. We can gush in the comments instead.
Apart from one of the honorable mentions, this week’s Alphabet Soup is a collection of ’90s and older songs, so let us scratch that nostalgic itch.
At first, the only songs that popped into my head for this letter were bad ones like “Que Sera Sera” (sorry, Doris Day fans) or “Quit Playing Games With My Heart” (ditto Backstreet gals).

Oh, friends, we’re chock full of love, lust and loneliness in this week’s Ode to The Letter O. Stick through until the end since I’ve left you all a present. Oh yes.
Songs that start with The Letter N (somewhat predictably) often have the words “Never” and “New York” in their titles. We’ve got that here, plus some ’90s classics. Get in.
Friends, we are officially at the halfway point for this column. Let’s reward ourselves by rocking out and taking in the eye candy.
Oh, The Letter L is a good one this week because I am sharing some of my All-Time Favorite Songs, of any letter. In some ways, it was difficult to articulate why these songs make all the right parts of my brain light up, and it’s tempting to just say, “Well, listen! It’s obvious,” but […]
