The Centennial State is not very well represented in music - at least not compared to Tennessee or Texas or California or Massachusetts or about 35 other states - so I wanted to see if I could find a good mix of songs to represent Colorado. The first disc consists of artists from Colorado, the second is songs about the state or with Colorado in their lyrics. En_ding with our state song, written by a non-native who was proud to call this state home for 30 years.

Some songs and artists unfortunately didn't make the cut. I probably could have filled both discs with John Denver songs, but I decided that I wanted one song per artist. I tried "Colorado Sunshine" by 3OH!3 on both sides, but it didn't fit with either very well, musically. "Colorado" by Grizzly Bear also didn't fit in very well, although it came closer than the 3OH!3 song. And I couldn't fit India.Arie, Hot IQs, Slim Cessna's Auto Club or The Samples on. The hardest cut I made was "I Hope My New House Feels Welcoming to You" by Pee-Pee because it was just too long.

One note: "Cable Car" is the original title of the song by The Fray, and the name under which I first heard the song back in December of 2004. When they got a major label contract, they changed it to "Over My Head," but I'll always think of it as the title I first heard it by, when they were just a local band.

I know you've got a little John Denver thing, so I couldn't believe it took to the finale of disc two for him to appear. Sure is a fitting closer to this mix.
Good to see you got this out before Sufjan Stevens gets there.
