Because of the way the weather has fluctuated so wildly here in New Jersey, I’ve been hesitant to travel with CDs in my car. Instead, I load up a flash drive and plug that in. Whoever invented USB port technology is a genius, especially when temperatures move from a chilly, breezy 49 degrees one day to near-80 the next.
I’ve found that, over the past week with a specific list of artists on the playlist, some tracks have risen to the top of the Repeat and Repeat category. Here now are those songs that just would not let go. Pay close attention to the tracks by The Smithereens (who just released a fine, brand new album called Smithereens 2011) and Tommy Keene (who has a career retrospective titled Tommy Keene: You Hear Me, which is 41 songs long and nearly the price of an ordinary CD. Such a deal!)
