    Rather an excellent week of #1 records, not a song in the bunch that I dislike

    I would not have figured you for a fan of TK’s “I Want to Talk About Me.”

      That’s definitely my least favorite, though I wouldn’t say that I hate it altogether.

      Actually, I rather liked “I Wanna Talk About Me” – it expresses a sentiment too often stifled in our overbearingly PC culture. My least favorite song on the list is “My Next Broken Heart” , but even it’s okay. You’d probably guess that “Walk On By” and “Kiss An Angel Good Morning” are my favorites, and you’d be correct, but “All Roads Lead To You” is close to them and is probably my favorite Steve Wariner single.

        Funny, “My Next Broken Heart” is my favorite on the list. Ronnie Dunn, when he’s on, is as good as any singer in country music.
        I know “Walk On By” and “Kiss An Angel” are country gold classics, but neither of them grabs me; I find Steve Wariner overly bland.
        I like a lot of Toby Keith, and I don’t disagree with you about the sentiments in the song, but the song is just painful to listen to.

          I’ve generally been less impressed with Ronnie Dunn than most, I suppose. He wouldn’t be on my list of twenty-five favorite male vocalists
