Good goo of random gum: Soundtrack for life

Standard
What started off as a Halloween thing – making CDs of music — good or bad — that comprised the soundtrack of my previous year has become a much bigger effort, happening two or three times a year now. I make these seasonal soundtracks that I send out to friends with seasonal cards, etc. but also put the playlists up on Spotify – at least those songs that exist on Spotify.
There are always reasons behind the choices, so the track listing always provides some narrative (to be found in the blog posts). The Spotify lists are just lists of music – and if you were to only go to those, you would find yourself perplexed (without context) as to why I would choose some of the music there. Some of it, unequivocally, sucks. Cases in point – any French 80s crap, such as Laurent Voulzy or Daniel Balavoine. But these things made up memorable moments in my life that I had to capture.
