Mix Tape 040

Whatt Four

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.

See below for scan credits.  Enjoy!
