A Playlist For You.

January 29, 2009

For the past 5 years or so, my cousin Jevan, who I adore, and his wife Casey, who I might adore even more (sorry, cuz, it's a girl thing!), put together a "Best Of" CD each year and send it out around the holidays. I must say, guys, this year was my favorite. I've been listening to it in the car for about 3 weeks straight now. C-Man and I take turns singing The Kills to each other in the car on the way to school. Really loudly.

They had a "Faceoff" theme this year, which made for a darling cover. See?
Here's the playlist, if you're interested. Casey's picks are the odd ones, Jevan's the even ones. Can't decide whose list I like more. (I wanted to link to YouTube for each song, but alas, no time for that. I did, however, put a link to The Kills' song because C-Man is demanding to hear it.)
