The Music

One of the coolest, niftiest things in my cool, nifty car is the CD player. It's an MP3 6 disk player that we got because The Husband went online and printed a coupon (I do not kid, and he is also extremely cool and nifty for knowing to do that.) So, because I'm just weird and enthused, I've been making giant MP3 cds of my music collection to keep in the car. I've been going through all my disks and re-ripping some stuff and I once more became aware that my tastes are...eclectic. Lemme give you a sample list straight from my music library. I'll skip the soundtracks, compilation CDs, classical collections and the assorted mixes given by friends. Just skimming through the performers, we have...
