This first playlist reflects on my current no holds barred, no quarter, kicking the door in mentality. Taking a stand against tyrants and any others who may try and tear us down.  This attitude reflects the them of new beginnings for this time of year, the renewal of the green world, and a bigger passion for life and the world at large.  Mixed in there are some songs that are just a lot of fun to listen to or rock out to.  You will also notice the major permeation of 90’s music, which never seems to lose its relevancy.  A product of my times truly am I.

 

Second Playlist- Acrobat

2. Under The Influence- Matthew Good Band

3.Panic Switch- Silversun Pickups

The second mix just came at me suddenly this morning, and the results were too good not to share.  More of the same swagger, the same attitude, the same diversity, renewal, the good fight, moving on.  All of these things and more.  Tell me which you like more. 🙂
