May 2009

Here's a playlist loosely based on the idea that good music has the ability to take you on a vacation. I think that we, as modern, civilized, and driven humans, are usually not living in the way that each of us would consider ideal. It's mostly the constraints of responsibility holding us back. But a great song or a great album is transcendent and transportive, offering an instant trip to whereever it is you long to be - the Beach, the Mountains, a Party, a Romance, flying, whatever...
