20 On The 20th: Volume 1

When I was growing up I loved making mix tapes for road trips, friends, actually, for any reason at all. Some would have themes (acoustic versions, song with colors or names in the title, covers, etc.) and some would just be songs I loved at that particular moment in time. In honor of those mix tapes I’ll be sharing 20 songs with some kind of theme to them (at least the theme will be clear in my mind) on the 20th of every month. I hope you all enjoy it, and if you’ve got any ideas for a theme feel free to leave a comment and I’ll see what I can work out.

  2. That's a really good idea. I'm going to have to do some searching to find 20 songs like that. Thanks for the great suggestion.
