Father’s Day is this Sunday June 21 and   ” Billboard” has published a list of DAD songs. Some of these are about GOOD dad’s and some of them are about BAD dads. Madonna is the ONLY artist to get 2 songs on the list and she  also holds the number 1 song.

As you celebrate with your dad, here’s good fodder for conversation. Please scroll to the bottom for my “Honorable mentions” that didn’t make the Billboard list.
