Billy Crockett was a CCM singer-songwriter who played a concert at my college freshman year. I helped set up for the concert and got him to record some promos for the campus radio station. He was a really, really nice guy, so I bought his album. It’s not bad, but I kind of always wanted to like it more than I did because I liked him as a person more than I wound up liking his album. I have quite a few albums and books for which this is true.

    I only have The Way to Nice by the Ethiopian master of psychedelic jazz, Mulatu Astatke. I’ve read a blog describing his style with the words: “Who needs drugs if you can listen to Mulatu Astatke?” I completely agree with this!

    Since you’re new, the rule of the game is not that the songs have the word “way,” it’s that they start with the word “way” or “way–”.

    I’d have a lot longer list if I included songs with the word “way” that weren’t at the beginning. Including “This is the Way the Ladies Ride,” from my massive collection of children’s music for work.

    Starting with “the” or “a” is ok too.  If you sort in iTunes it ignores “The” anyway.  Which maddeningly means you can’t search for anything by The The.
