Christmas came early to the Dough house this year... I finally got my recliner (after 5 years of wanting one), and Dan finally got an ipod. So far - so good - although Dan's ipod is pissing us off. It won't play anything that had album art... annoying.

So - in the spirit of music being re-introduced to our home, I bring you a list (long and drawn out) of music that moves me... think of this as the giant mix (you know I'm famous for my mixes, kids - back in the hey day it was a true sign of my genuine affection for ya if you got one of my mixes...).

- Send Me on My Way - Rusted Root

- Been Caught Stealing - Jane's Addiction
- OH - and I'm a Beatles Girl (Blackbird, Julia (yep - how we named the big Doughkid), Norwegian Wood and In My Life are faves) but I like the Stones as well - Paint it Black is one of my favorite all time songs.

I can NOT tell you how many times I have edited this to add things... I know I can only sum up so much of the music that makes me who I am - and it does make me who I am. Most of these songs are older because I guess I've just shut music out of a lot of my life. I want to change that...
