This list was hard to make, 'cause I had to leave out about 3,000 songs. I hope you enjoy/know at least one or two of the bands I posted about. The more recent ones are pretty obscure.

I must be getting old because I've never heard of half your songs. I'll have to check them out. Hate to be one of those old ladies stuck in her era.

I don't know any of your current playlist music, either! It's funny that you associate those songs with me waking you up in the summer...I don't remember music being a part of that. So funny. I need to do a playlist!

Do you remember the cd or tape you made for Whit and you to listen to while you drove her to seminary? And I remember her telling me you made here wear a sombreo (?) one day to celebrate something- thanks for being a fun ride for her! Oh, and don't you know any country music? I think you'd really like it!!!

I am so proud of you and making a playlist! I think all of your music, from your childhood was attributed to me. I had no idea you were sneaking off listening to my cranberries cd. How funny. I can totally picture you listening to your music with your headphones on.
