Whenever I get a post comment from someone who links to their blog using CommentLuv I make a point of peeking at it, I’m nosy like that. Last time I updated, it was Tricia over at Geeky Explorers who commented and unknowingly subjected her site to my prying eyes.
One of the first things that stood out to me was the Playlist at the top of the site, and it made me realize that I have something very similar, a collection of music Julie bought from iTunes in secret and then burned onto a CD and gave to me on the day I went to pick up Bertha last year in October.
I listen to a lot more music than just this when I’m on the road of course, but these are all songs either about traveling, or about making a big change and being strong, some are about both. Back at the Old Job, before I had the Casita and was still trying to put the pieces together, whenever I had a rough day I could throw this CD on (yeah, I didn’t have a mp3 player at the time – I’m so old school) and it’d lift my mood and remind me what I was working towards.
I think I even mentioned the existence of this CD in passing at some point before when I was responding to comments, but I never got around to posting the songs on it like I said I would.
Well today, I finally am. All links lead to the song on YouTube, some are official music videos but some of these songs don’t have a music video and they’re still images or a roll of the lyrics. A good half of them are country songs, I like country music what can I say.
