Great mix! I had to smile when I saw your John Denver pick. And now I'm playing it on my iTunes. It's not possible to listen to him and be in a bad mood.

I love Once. Falling Slowly has to be one of the best songs written. Beautiful melody and words.

Glad you are back!

I love it! I'm putting together a play list for our upcoming road trip and I love the memories that some of the songs bring back. However, no Wilson Phillips? How can this be?! :)
