Successful Songs By Alliterative Artists

For the grammatically unenlightened, the word "alliterative" derives from the word alliteration, which is defined as "the repetition of the same sounds or of the same kinds of sounds at the beginning of words or in stressed syllables." All the songs in this collection are performed by artists with alliterative names. You'll find several golden oldies here, as well as a few newer tunes. Enjoy!  ~  JH
