I got a notice today telling me that Musical Assumptions is one of the top 100 music education blogs on the planet. Any attempt to resuscitate the musical blogosphere is a good thing, so since I have earned the right to display this badge, I will:

I also got a badge last week from my orchestra to commemorate ten years of membership:

And no list of badges would be complete without posting pictures of my swimming buttons. These are not my actual swimming buttons, which disappeared during the last half century. But I did work hard during my childhood in the 1960s to earn buttons that look exactly like these. I still remember how difficult it was to learn to float in order to get the "beginner" button. I also remember the solemnity of the button-giving ceremony.

Hello everyone. My name is Olga and I'm from Russia
At the moment I'm in the process of writing my master's thesis on the use of blogs in education.
Could you help me a little? Just answer the question here in the comments. Who do you consider the best singer, composer, songwriter of all time?
It can be one person or several people. I will be very grateful for your help.
Beams of goodness all around, as we say in Russia.
