Can't remember when these cds were handed over, but I can say I've listened to them lots. Entitled Cathy's Way Mixed Up and Annie's Mixed Up Too, these were the cds that accompanied me on the ride home from work. The Gossip's Fire Sign was what I blasted as I zipped out of the parking structure, Franz Ferdinand's Take Me Out played as I wove through traffic along Interstate 5 and Self's What A Fool Believes with the funky homemade instruments kept me entertained by the railroad tracks on Imperial Highway.
For a change of pace, I'd put on Night Life and listen to Willie Nelson's cute twang, or if I wanted to chill, I'd skip to Modest Mouse's Dramamine. Cat Power's "hey, hey, hey's" in He War played if I skipped the 105 and exited Firestone giving me the perfect amount of time to listen to either Custom Concern ("Got to go to work, got to have a job....") or Dreams as I backed up the driveway.
The listening rotation got way mixed up when the commute time and distance was doubled but I made damn good time home with these cds.
