Whatt Four

Billy Stewart
The Chantelles
 


It's been a while. I've been away, physically and metaphysically.  I've also spent way too much time over thinking this playlist.  It's always a challenge choosing songs and, more so, the track order. I can never seem to get it just right.  So I thought I'd make this perfect.  It's not, but I usually don't realize that until 3 seconds after I upload it.  So, I figured it was time to stop thinking and just throw this hodgepodge up in the stratosphere, or cloud.  I hate that friggin' term.  

I know I'm leaving out some credits for contributions.  I can assure you it's not intentional; I simply don't remember any more.  A handful of you have contributed greatly and I thank all of you.  Whew, covered that base. -)  Enough from me, I don't like to be chatty since no one reads this stuff anyway.

The brilliant cover of Hunger's "Workshop" (which includes original Hunger member John Morton along with one of my favorite cyberpals, Golly McCry and a brilliant organ by Mr. Oudijk - how do you pronounce that?!) almost got me to do an entirely psych set. Almost.
