Where The Highway Ends: The Playlist

Most times, the destination isn’t nearly as important as the journey. How complete and memorable is that journey without the music that gets us there? We hear a song and immediately we know what we were doing and who we were with, and we relive those moments. I like to think I have a gift of knowing what to play and when. And after each trip, my friends ask for the list. Well, here it is! Enjoy!

Oh! I know my playlist is a little outdated, but I’m slow on hearing new music. Comment below with songs I really need to add to my list! Thank you!
