California Music

I have to listen to music when I'm walking on my TreadClimber. I mean, I have to play music or I can't seem to do it for very long. I've tried without it, but it's just impossible because I stare at the timer the whole time. It just drags by. The other day I was listening to my California Playlist on my iPod. I hadn't played that one in a long time, so it was a fun change from my usual music. I've been making themed playlists for a long time. I used to record music onto cassette tapes — way before iTunes even existed! Now they pay people to do that? Dang!

I was on iTunes last night because I have some gift cards I wanted to use. I sat there staring at the thing in total confusion, and had no idea what to buy. It was overwhelming, so I just gave up. I was looking at Wikipedia today though, and came across a list of songs about California. You can see them here. There are a bunch of songs about California, and some of them I have on my iPod, but not on my playlist. I guess I need to work on my iTunes soon and reorganize things. These are some of the California related songs I have on my playlist so far ...
