The Travel Playlist

I recently took a family vacation to California and in addition to packing and making sure everyone’s assorted stuffed animals were in tow, I did the most important thing; stock the iPod with music.

This will be boring to some (most?) but to music geeks like me it’s a big deal, especially when you consider that I had to allot a sizeable chunk of my hard drive space to Cars2, and Looney Tunes videos as fall backs for when the kids simply came unhinged during the trip.

Tough decisions had to be made. Henceforth is the playlist you get:
