This is a list of the music that was special to us, and that has had an affect on me, even if it is just because it got stuck in my head. This is a living page, so check back often. Like the books and film pages, the first four entries here will remain semi-static.

  • Entry one will be whatever album is setting the tone for me that day/week. 
  • Entries two and three will be the celebration playlists.
  • Entry four will be music referenced in blog entries. 
  • Past album entries start in the the fifth slot.

Playlist for Melissa's Virginia Celebration

We played the music on random, so I can't tell you what played when. I can tell you that The Flaming Lips - Summertime was the first song and Curt Kirkwood's Circles was the last song. Without further ado, here is the music we had in Virginia.
