Mix Tape Autobiography

                                                     Mix Tape Autobiography

These are all songs that I love that have a special significance–either to my present or past life.  Most can be found on YouTube or iTunes.  I hope you enjoy them.  They are in no particular order, although the first song is probably from the most distant past.  You might guess where “Little Bird” fits in, and “Buckets of Rain.”

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Mix Tape Masterpiece.” You make a new friend. Make them a mix tape (or playlist, for the younger folks) that tells them who you are through song.

      I did it once and forgot to save and lost it, so probably lost some. I have a friend who sends me the most fabulous music. Many of these are ones he introduced into my life and at least one of them is actually about him!
