mix no. 1


So, a little secret:  one of the reasons I even wanted to start a blog in the first place was to share my music mixes. I know they're kind of all over the blogosphere right now, but I'm going to post them anyway. Giving carefully-ordered mixes to those I love and spreading fervor for my favorite bands has been making me happy for years, so why stop now? I'm also hoping to add a little dose of weirdness to the web (plans are laid for a harpsichord mix, a sha-la-la mix, and more).

This playlist is entitled "giddy" because, simply enough, the songs lift my spirits. They're jangly, sunny and sing-along-happy, perfect for a spring roadtrip or getting pumped in the morning. I hope you enjoy!
