Music to Blog To

Late at night, just returned from a neighborhood get together. First one I have attended in the year we have lived here, first one I have been invited to I should say. Many of the families have lived here over 10 years. Women of varying ages and life stages and lifestyles attended. It was nice to meet many of my neighbors. Can't quite wind down to sleep though I am sure I will regret that decision in the morning as I will need to get up and everyone is asleep here.

Said to myself I just want to get in a few quick blog posts to catch up on the week. Then I decided I needed some music to blog to and spent the better part of the past half hour putting together a playlist. Started with a single song and then following like artists and plugging in many of my favorites from this time of my life.

Wonder what this will tell you about me. Here is my musicmatch playlist titled "college" - made up of much of the music that reminds me of my college days, especially the later ones, the positive ones after Serona joined my life. Some major gaps in the list that just do not fit my mood tonight are Pink Floyd, Grateful Dead, Phish, Fleetwood Mac, 4ad label (especially Slowdive, Cranes, Cocteau Twins and This Mortal Coil), and Billy Joel. Here is my current playlist that I listen to as I blog this and drink some Tazo calm tea:

  2. Oh, your list is wonderful.

    By chance do you listen to any Suburbs or Trip Shakespeare? I have fond memories when I think back on nights Uptown and Downtown during my young adulthood living in Mpls.
