Favorite Picks

Below are the most popular picks for this category, two of which made Dorian's final playlist above. This is the second time Dorian decided to publish the list of the most popular recommendations. (The first was for Cover Songs.) This was still a list of the most popular nominations and not yet the B List which is now a regular feature in the blog.
