Set Adrift on Memory Bliss…

This week I’ve been cleaning house in preparation for a move (and because the weather has suuuuuuucked). Amongst all the clutter, I found a huge dusty box of fun keepsakes, notes, pictures aaaaaand MIXED TAPES*! (*actual cassettes) from high school, college and even some more recent years.  Knee deep in plastic Memorex cases, I decided to lure spring out of hiding with a little positive thinking by playing all of my old spring mixes and pulling out some pics from spring breaks past. The 60 songs that follow are all tracks that have shown up on my playlists from the last 10+ years – some classic spring songs, some obscure – ALL guaranteed to put a spring in your step and a smile on your face as you stroll down memory lane – consider it your musical Easter Basket…
