Comment:

We're all taking a trip down to Tennessee this weekend, so I put this together for the trip.

If Dad doesn't like the music that's playing, he'll turn it off. So in order to listen to anything, it has to be Dad-approved, and all these songs definitely are.

In addition, they have to be tolerable to my sister, or else she'll complain the entire time. And I think Grandma won't find too much to complain about. (As for Mom...Well, she nods along to Children of Bodom, for goodness sake, so I think she'll be fine.)

A multi-generational road mix! Now that's the way to travel.

If y'all are comin' through my neck of the woods, a little Americana might be in order. Otherwise, some nice selections.

I'll bet this made for a really entertaining trip! :-) Let us know how everybody liked it!

Under normal circumstances, I would single out my favorite tracks, but in this particular instance...I just can't!! ;-) Frankly, it's all good, with nary a weak link in the bunch!

Dad had a story to tell about almost every song here, so it made some interesting conversation on the way down. Grandma wasn't really paying attention to it, and Laura didn't complain much, except for the Jethro Tull and SRV. So I'd say it was a pretty fair success ^_^.
