I've decided in my infinite wisdom to kick off the new year with something different, put together a playlist with what I'm listening to. Some of it will be old, some new, it may have a link it maybe completely random. My finger doesn't always remain on the pulse so I can be a little behind on what's new this is my way of catching, staying in front and offering readers a bit of a glimpse. So with that I'll kick off the year with my New Year's playlist, it's in a relaxed vein because some of us may have sore heads from our New Year's revelry.
