Day 52 +22 The final playlist

I’ve listened to this playlist at least 10 times; it serves its purpose — every song reminds me of a place along the way (Winnemucca) , or an event (check yo self), or maybe just a part of the trip (“silver machine”).   Some of the best song ideas came from others.   I’m still open to improvements 🙂 …. my teeth grate every time I have to listen to “One Bad Apple” for example.

  1. you have a repeat (horse with no name on days 10,15)?…and I can’t believe (ok I can) you left out desperado (queen of hearts is always your best bet) for day 47 (or perhaps day 46 for “don’t you draw the queen of diamonds boy”)…that said, i cant really argue with rambling man or running on empty
