A Playlist Post.

Since for the past two months I haven't been able to write anything other than lists I thought a playlist would be nice... so I made a kind of big one. Coming up with titles is the most fun. Also the best part about reading people's playlists is when you see something on there you know and can instantly Love/Hate/Relate to the person who wrote it. I repeated a lot of Artists on here, cause they're all songs I listen to or would listen to in said situations and also my entire ITunes got deleted some time ago, meaning all the funny little in-between songs disappeared as well. Oh well. Anyway, Enjoy and write me what you Love/Hate/Can Relate To/Etc. About it all.

  1. So many great songs here. How could I not love a list that has Waterloo Sunset on it:). So eclectic too - the VU, Edith Piaf, Robert Johnson and Henry Mancini, I can't remember if I told you I saw Tom Waits perform in Seattle in 2004. Did you ever hear either of the 60's versions of "Sorrow"? The McCoys did the original version, and the Merseys had a UK hit with it.
