The Playlist

In just a few hours, Ryan, Bob, Juliet, and I will get in a car and drive 10 hours to Nashville, Tennessee. Actually, it will be more like 12 because Bob insists we have to stop for frivolous activities like eating, using the restroom, and seeing Rock City. One of the those is a joke.

Last night, Ryan and I engaged in the annual ritual of creating the playlist. 145 songs. 10 hours of music. Here are the guidelines:
  • Must be upbeat. We are in the car, after all.
  • Must be singable.
  • Must be known by at least half of the car participants.
Topping the list with most songs this year is Elvis Presley- with five songs. We are going to Tennessee, after all. A close second is Simon and Garfunkel with four songs. Next would be Billy Joel, Bon Jovi, Dwight Yoakam and Glee???? with three each. (Glee?! How did that happen?!)

We leaned heavily in the direction of 80s music for the trip this year. Sprinkled in are some showtunes, a couple Disney songs, a little worship, and some classic songs from that odd little genre known as Contemporary Christian. It's gonna be epic.

I'm a big believer in stand-up comedy. Have my iPad packed with about 15 different albums to choose from for our drive to Cleveland.
