The modern-day¬†mix tape is dead to me.¬† I find myself thinking of playlists on a COMPLETELY different level than I did when everything had to fit into the rationed¬†time of the CD I was burning, and I’m not even going to mention cassette (so as not to date myself.)¬† I don’t know how much time I¬†would spend contemplating what song would get the axe in order to¬†cut the length of play time for the perfect playlist.¬† Well, screw that.¬† Let’s just go with the wanton¬†ideology that¬†quantity IS quality when it comes to music!¬†

With an MP3 in hand, in car, in dock… I am pretty much listening to music ALL day.¬† Shuffle rules the roost when I’m all by my lonesome, but with different friends and functions you need different atmosphere music.¬† Different strokes for different folks.¬† So I have devised a¬†new plan for¬†the¬†playlists I force-feed down my friends throats… 60-100 track playlists.¬† I know, I’m sorry guys.¬† I’m forceful, I’m¬†much too¬†musically snobbish, and above all, I’m vocal about why I love the music I love.¬† But it’s fun right??? ūüôā

In a social setting of a few hours and no limitations, ¬†I have created a two for one system that I love!¬† Being an avid runner, and an audiophile, I usually set up¬†10-20 high tempo or lyrically¬†interesting songs¬†at the beginning of¬†every playlist to listen to during my workouts… and then¬†in a social situation I put the whole list on shuffle instead.

So without further ado, I present the Sodapop¬†and Ponyboy playlist… because I’ve always¬†been captivated by ‘the Oldies’.¬† AND YES I KNOW THESE ARE NOT ALL SONGS FROM THE 50’s, but it’s MY playlist, so shut it.
