Over the last 10 years I've made several playlists.
The first was when I turned 30 and gave it as a 'party favor' to
friends and family who came to my 30th birthday party.
Now, I usually make one to represent the year we are having,
or a baby we are having,
or a place we are living.
And, turning 40.
I did something a little different and asked friends and family
to contribute to the list. In all, there are 31 (!) songs...
many were suggested and many were ones I included.
Why so many? Well, this has been quite the decade.
And these songs were the soundtrack.
Mostly, they are written in the order of what was happening over the last 10 years.
Here's the playlist. If the song was suggested by someone, I put their name in parenthesis.
One song was suggested but I wasn't feeling it, so I took another from the the artist and included it.
You won't find the music here, these are just a list of songs.
Let me know if you'd like a copy.
Funny how so many of the songs suggested were exactly right...thanks for knowing me so well.
