The Perfect Album

This pandemic hasn’t been all bad. I restarted this blog, film a lot of sermons, and get to work on my farm. Another love that was rekindled was my absolute love of music. I got to thinking the other day if I were to put out a CD of my favorite 12 songs what would that look like?

In the day of “playlists” it’s not to hard to do, but if I was about to record a cassette or burn a CD what would be on it? So as a fun entry I give you Jimmy’s Super Mix Tape Vol 1. Only Rule is you can only use a band/singer once.

Side 1

  1. Roam by B-52’s
  2. Sweet Up and Down by Dave Matthews Band
  3. But Anyway by Blues Traveler
  4. Bringing On The Heartbreak by Def Leppard
  5. First Kiss by Kid Rock
  6. Hungry Like the Wolf by Duran Duran

Side 2

  1. Take It Off by The Donna’s
  2. Did You Mean It by Third Day
  3. Fire Woman by The Cult
  4. Long Way Back Home by Barenaked Ladies
  5. Three Little Birds by Bob Marley
  6. Some Of It by Eric Church

I know that if I made a Vol 2 it will probably look different, but that’s the fun of it all. Maybe sometime I’ll do a 10 Movie Marquee of the Movies that I’d show if I owned my own theater.

If you come across this and feel inclined I’d like to see your Vol 1. I also hope I may have exposed you to a song or four you’ve never heard.

      sweet. It was also part inspired by reminiscing on the weekend jams we listened to when we closed the on the weekends.

    I love “First Kiss” by Kid Rock. It’s something I totally did not expect to come from someone who sang “Bawitdaba” 🙂

      I know right. It’s one of the song I loved immediately when I heard it.
