I spent several hours yesterday night burning CD compilations to send to Lbo’s lovely husband, Big D, who is deployed to Afghanistan right now. I had a long chat with Lbo about what I could send to the poor guy to make his life a little bit better. Fortunately they are treated really well over there and are not wanting for much. Except for home that is. They are wanting for home.
I happen to love creating CD compilations for friends and for myself but I do tend to get into a bit of a rut. I find that a lot of the same songs get put on my CDs over time. I guess we all have our favourites and getting fixes of those tunes is good. But I don’t want to repeat myself too much.
So I ask you all a favour. Please list your top 5 (or more if you want!) best songs you would like to hear on a compilation CD. Big D has VERY diverse tastes and likes to listen to all sorts of stuff. Any era and genre. So put your musical thinking caps on and comment your hearts out. I would really appreciate the help in creating some fabulous ‘tune festivals’ for this guy who is working 16-18 hour days. The good news is that he can play music on his laptop while working.
