Comment:

As per CBlaze's challenge, a mix of your 20 All Time favorites, with a dead celeb photo on the cover. Remind me to punch Blaze in the chops if I ever meet him...this mix was surprisingly for a littany of reasons. A quick requiem for "Big Time Sensuality" by Bjork and "The Difficult Kind" by Sheryl Crow...both of which had to be replaced for reasons of timing. Decided to put 'em in chronilogical order. Intersting...70% of these tunes were before I was born. The photo of Lennon is one of my all-time favorite images. Cheers! -Famous.

Excellent compilation. Surprising how much mine would differ from youurs, bro. Still it would be minor- mostly picking different songs by the same artist. Still, a great mix boyo... you done good.

Ha! Shows what you know, I don't even have chops! Great mix!! Lovin' pretty much every song on here! There certainly is something about that Lennon photo too. Personally I love the one where he's holding the cash and peering over his glasses. Sorry bout the time, it sucks, I snipped, I cut, I went through the same damn thing. It doesn't look like the mix suffered though. I had a hard time picking a Sheryl Crow song, there are so many that I really like that I figured if I picked one, it would discount another. Hopefully yours starts the avalanche and we can start seeing everyone for their down-n-dirty selves (Cos that'd be cool). Take care!

Wow! That's all I can say. Know (and like) every song on it (except for James Taylor whose song I don't know). I guess I came a little late to this site, but it's a challenge I will try to pick up soon (if not creating an actual disc then at least making such a mix). It would be completely different (of course!), but this would one be a very easy copout.
