iPod Journal for June 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.

Here is my iPod journal for June 2006

1. Herbert, "Something Isn't Right"
2. The Four Tops, "The Same Old Song"

The Coup? Did I recommend them to you or did you find them on your own? I'm impressed.
