The Complete Playlist

A friend sent me an e-mail asking for a complete listing of my jump-start-the-heart songs for the morning. Since I'm always looking around for them anyway, I thought I'd put them into one post and then add the link to my sidebar. That way I can get them whenever I want to. With the magic of the infinitely malleable document that is the Internet, I can add or subtract from the list as my tastes change.

    If you're the least bit melancholy, this is the song for you. It's a 2:00 a.m. kind of song, when the world has become a bit disconnected.
