My Mixed Tape…

M U S I C    M O N D A Y 

For those of you keeping track, I missed last week’s Music Monday because someone by the name of Brian Westbye stole my idea. That’s right, he’s the kind of guy that can’t come up with his own stuff so he takes from other people. Some of you who know him might defend him by saying that he’s gifted, truly prolific, original, an amazing writer, etc. Blah, blah, blah. I just know that I couldn’t go ahead with my intended post because I didn’t want him to feel inferior — you know, it would be natural to compare. Since my writing has a “special” quality that his lacks, I thought it best to let him have the post.

So today I give you Lisa’s Mixed Tape. This is an extremely eclectic bunch of songs if ever there was a bunch of eclectic songs. (See, this is precisely the kind of sentence that Brian could never come up with. I’m just saying.) This is just a very small sample of some of my treasured music — songs I like to play in the car when I’m driving around and getting road rage. Just kidding!
