100 music posts! Wow that went fast. I'm really quite amazed that I've been able to actually pull this together and keep this thing going with something new every day. With only a couple of exceptions that has been a new record everyday for you readers. And as of now I've got lots more planned. Post 200 is just around the corner. If I can maintain this pace for a year I think it will really be an accomplishment.
So in honor of today's benchmark I decided to post my Spring 2008 mix. Now to be honest, this is my first Spring mix. I got the idea for this in the middle of the winter when I was longing for spring. I've been doing Christmas and Halloween mixes for a few years now and was looking for an excuse for another seasonal theme. Spring made sense. So this 100th post falls at the perfect time to release this playlist. I hope it can work as a nice soundtrack to your spring. I know this doesn't work for the readers below the equator, but just save this for next October and then listen to it.
If you have any favorite Spring songs I'd love to hear them. I'll be collecting songs for next year's mix.
