And The Number Of The Counting Shall Be Three...

The idea behind the meme is that it's about music, and that you can put up to three answers to any question. But no more. One answer is OK, two answers is OK, three answers is OK. Four is not OK, and five is right out. Unless otherwise indicated, you can only choose songs, and be specific -- putting "anything by Madonna" doesn't count.

I suppose if I ever get around to figuring out the whole MP3 bee's-wax, I could cut my finger-picking tribute to Madonna (but given that it's taken me this long to adjust to the technology, you might want to continue to breathe normally in the interrim...)
