A quick insight into my psyche

On impulse, I made a musical/linguistic observation involving my iTunes music. Clicked the "Name" tab of the songs, putting them in alphabetical order, making no sense genre- or album-wise. Of course, that was the fun of it.

But more importantly, here's what I noticed: Many songs start from disparate artists start with the same, or very similar, first word. As I skimmed, I realized this not only was an insight into the timely and timeless creative resevoir of humanity but of myself, as well.

WTFz?!

Here's a (relatively) brief alphabetical list I compiled, giving: the word and/or its basic root use along with plurals, etc.; an explanation of its meaning, if need be; the part(s) of speech; and the number of times its used. I eliminated basic contraction pronouns and articles as first words and kept the unique ones with five mentions or more.

I kept the exclamations, however, because, well, why the hell not?

Have fun. You're going to learn so much about me.
