New Music Season

When I was buying my car a few years ago there were two options for sound systems.  Option 1, a single cd player with an external audio jack on the front, plus 4 dinky speakers using 50 watts total.  Or option 2, a 6 disc mp3 cd player with no external audio jack, plus 8 speakers and a subwoofer using 465 watts.  Well needless to say I went for the 465 booming watts, plus bone rattling bass.  At the time I was seduced by all the speakers and the letters ‘mp3′ in the name, forgetting about the missing external audio jack.  Little did I know that small little jack would come back to bite me.  So for the past few years I’ve been burning mp3 cd’s with music on them, usually about 8 albums per cd.  That music only lasts so long and I tire of it.  Why not just burn more cd’s, you say? Well, I’m lazy.  And now I have an iPhone.  I’m wishing I had the audio jack now.  My wife bought me one of those FM tuners to play audio from the iPhone in the car, but let’s be honest here, FM tuners suck.  They always have and always will, no matter how many times I try them.  This is no fault on my wife’s part, she did a good thing trying to feed my iPhone habit. 

Anyways, that brings me to the point of this post.  It’s that time of year when I break through my laziness and burn a new mp3 cd and move on to some new music.  So here’s what I’ll be listening to for the next 6-12 months in the car.  It’s an eclectic mix of sounds.
