iPod journal for April 2006

A few years ago I started making mix CDs of songs I was listening to a lot during a particular month. It was an idea I stole from Cameron Crowe, who kept monthly mix tapes as a sort of musical journal. I like it because music is my best memory jogger, and I can listen to a disc I made in Sept. 2003 and remember exactly what I was doing that month.

I started doing monthly iPod playlists last month, which affords more song space and better access. Here's my playlist for April 2006.

1. Built To Spill, "Goin' Against Your Mind"
2. Phil Collins, "Inside Out"
3. Elf Power, "Come Lie With Me"
