    • Thanks Pete. That’s really a very cool thing to do! I’m listening to your Lala playlist right now while working. I’ve never really heard all these songs continuously on a playlist like this before. This is great. Gives me another kind of perspective toward these songs. Awesome. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it.

  1. great list, the wilco song is a nice inclusion, it is so different from their ‘regular’ stuff and a great song
