Summer Soundtrack

Because I’m nuts, I keep a small journal of all of the music I (intentionally) listen to.  If I popped in a CD or loaded it on the iPod, it gets written down in a pretentious little Moleskin notebook.  Figured I should do something with that from time to time…so here we go.  Here’s what I listened to from June 20, 2012 through September 21, 2012.  This was the soundtrack of my Summer.  (Please note – For some reason, I do a much worse job of jotting down what I listen to on the weekends/holidays, so there are some days missing.  Most of this was listened to in the car or sitting around the house.  Some was on headphones at work.)
