I know a young lady who's now going to school in London, reminds me so much like my daughters, so I thought of this mix CD for her. Basically, they're songs that remind me of London, for no real particular reason why. But as I imagined this girl wandering the streets of London, seeking out the crevasses and the history and absorbing this great and ancient city, I imagined this as one soundtrack on one afternoon.
Only, I have to admit, since everything's on a playlist now, she might just add these songs to the great ocean of tunes on her iPod!
Or not . . . because she might think they suck. That's all right, though. One person's rock is another person's schlock, I always say!
This one's for you, Huda!
