Coming Home from Home: Tucson-Phoenix playlist

I drove from Tucson last night, cruising for two hours listening to .. well, no bum notes. It hit the best of several bands, and coming home from a very special day with Carrie (yup, midweek; today is when she flew in from Montana (via drive to Spokane and layover in Denver) it just truly fired – on all cylinders .

Not all music plays well when driving, when cruising or when trying to stay full of energy.

With the window down, the playlist was.

  • I heartily endorse Homeless from Paul Simon. Can’t believe you didn’t have ANY blues on that list. Shame on you! At the very least, you should have been boogying to the Insomniacs or Aunt Kizzy’z Boyz.
