I do road-music CD for when we travel. My taste in music spans the musical landscape. What's good about this is that we have about five CD cases and we rotate them every now and again. Each CD case contains a few mix-tape/CDs.
The case we selected for our trip to the beach this past weekend had four old road-music CD's that we hadn't heard for a long time. Music is magic. You can feel tired and sleepy one moment but when the right combination of songs blast out the speakers, your spirits soar and you're higher than a kite without the aid of pharmaceuticals. You don't have to drink enough caffeine to make your kidneys explode, just to stay awake. The music hits your eardrum and all of a sudden, you're tapping your steering wheel like it's a snare drum. Before you know it, you're a hundred miles down the road.
One one CD we had:
Travis Tritt - It's a Great Day To Be Alive
Israel Kamakawiwo'Ole - Some Where Over the Rainbow
Wild Cherry - Play That Funky Music White Boy
Jimi Hendrix - All Along the Watch Tower
U2 - Bloody Sunday
Hank Williams - I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry
...OK, I said my taste was eclectic. Anyhow, I'd like to hear what your mix-tape/CD would contain.
