About: thirty-three and a third

Thirty-three and a third years have passed since New Year’s Eve when 1979 ticked over to 1980.

2444239.5 = 1979-12-31
2456413.5 = 2013-04-30
delta = 12174 days

I have written a poem, “thirty-three and a third“, which is a non-linear journey through those 33.333 years with inspiration from that New Year’s Eve “Best Songs of the 1970s” countdown, assisted by the following reference and many lyrics references.

I hope you enjoy the journey. Question: Can you weave some threads together from a top 100, top 20, or top 10 countdown? Please try, and post a link here. Or use the hash tag #thirtyThreeAndAThird regardless of how long it has been since te play list you use. Enjoy!
