NYC Playlist

Annie (my fiance) and I are headed out at 4 am tomorrow morning for a trip to New York City. We are very excited because it is her son, Jude’s, first trip to New York; and his first train ride, and his first time on a subway. As has become tradition with Annie and me, we created a joint playlist just for the trip. This way everyone gets what they want, and there’s no fighting over the radio. We just hook up the iPod and press shuffle. I’m sharing this playlist with you so you can see just how different, and yet how similar, our musical tastes are. Those presented first, in green, are Annie’s picks. Mine will be in blue.
