Close your eyes and press play

We are about to move into our new house this weekend after staying with my in-laws for an unmentionable amount of time, and although they are great (and gracious) it is definitely a moment whose time has come. I have been severely deprived of blasting my music and of access to my records, and despite some attempts early on to stake out a mini collection of records that I can play here in the house when no adults are home, it's been tough. Following is a list of some of the hodge-podge, random songs I have acquired from records bought over these long months – the eclectic but often rewarding list of songs I will forever associate with my time here in purgatory. It's sort of like if you were stranded on an island and there was a record store with only a dollar bin to choose from.
