Who could hang a name on you?

(My black and white shoes that inspired my Girls, Girls, Girls lists)
I love lists. There's something about making a list about anything... it gives a certain degree of importance to every single silly thing on it...

And then, there's the magic of having a multiple kinds of lists! You can have a grocery list, work out list (not that I follow it too often), homework list-to-do (which I'd follow more often), housekeeping list, telephones lists, emails lists, book lists, expenses lists (omg.. so awful, probably even worst than the work out list...); but particularly, there are two lists that I love the most... All above the to-do-lists... One of it is the recipe (it is, after all a list!) and a music list...

I was mainly inspired by an AOL list of 25 songs, of all the times. They did a recollection of Heartbreaking songs (I know worst, but they were pretty good), Happy songs (not so good in my point of view) and Mend a broken heart (Awful list).

Being the perfectionist and stubborn that I am, because let's be honest, I am like that, I decided to make my own little lists... But changing the concept a bit, 25 are too many, 10 are too few, 15 is a boring number, 16 is perfect. I love the number 16. Scratch that... I tried to do that... It's too hard to choose only 16.. so we'll go with the 25...

So let's start with my little cute, amazing lists... Because you know they'll be like that!!

The first on of the lists of the lists (omg.. how amazing is that? A list of The List...) is Girls, Girls, Girls (Names)... The thing is, for me it'd be so cool to have you named after a song.. In my point of view, when you're named after a great name (well, just like me Penny) you become immediately immortal (until the song lasts, at least). And lets just not get to all the dedication possibilities... And for that reason, I have my own little collection of name songs... And I want to share them with you... (oh yes, and boys' names are coming... starting with the coolest name ever.. Daniel, (Daniel - Elton John) whose owner (my cousin) is super cool too.. but does't know who is Elton John.. which is a shame hahaha really...
And to finish my long story a small disclaimer no, they don't follow any kind of order... choosing 25 was hard enough, and I just can't choose favorites... So don't say anything..
