My wife and I are about to have a baby boy on Tuesday: Xavier Jack.

Two weeks before his birth, I asked all our family and friends to come up with one song that they'd like to contribute to a mix-cd in his honor. It could be their favorite song, a tune by an artist they like or a song with a great message.

By doing this, I hope he'll be exposed to different types of music and, more importantly, establish a life-long bond with each person who contributed.

I tried to arrange this mix as a journey through life...from birth to maturity.

Xavier, I hope you hear the songs on this mix and become inspired. We all love you and look forward to meeting you.

Well, the fortunate fellow will not lack for love. Were I asked, my contribution would be Kooks by David Bowie -- the perfect start, summed up in three minutes flat. Good luck to you all.
